Keon Daniel has been so good
in the midfield for Philadelphia
Union this season that he s man-
aged to keep Brazilian interna-
tional Kleberson out of the team s
starting line-up in the ongoing
American MLS season.
Daniel has started seven out of
the club s eight games this season
according to the official MLS site,
holding on to the central attacking
midfield position, which is Kle-
berson s preferred position.
And Union manager John Hack-
worth was pretty clear when he
explained why Kleberson has not
started more for his team.
"Keon, in a lot of ways, has been
one of our best players this year,"
Hackworth said. "And he has qual-
ities that other players don t have.
Quite honestly, Keon has superior
technique to anyone on our team.
I don t care who you throw in
there. He s just that good. So I
don t think it s a Kleberson vs Keon
situation---although it might come
down to that."
Since coming to Union from
Brazilian club Bahia in late March,
Kleberson has played in four
matches, accumulating just 25
Kleberson s past includes a short
time with Manchester United in
2003 before injury ruled him out
in his second appearance for the
club. Two years before that he led
Paranaense to both the Brazilian
Série A championship and Paraná
State League title. He has 32
appearances for Brazil and was a
member of their 2002 World Cup
winning team as well as their team
that captured the 2004 Copa
De Silva delighted
over first pro deal
Former national youth team
midfielder Sean De Silva is cur-
rently over the top after securing
his first professional contract in
the United States.
The former St Mary s College
student, also a past member of
the La Foucade Coaching School,
signed a one-year contract with
Minnesota United of the North
American Soccer League last Tues-
day. His deal includes the option
to extend for another year.
"It s an amazing feeling to finally
become a professional player as
it s all I wanted to become while
I was growing up," said De Silva, who
completed a degree in business admin-
istration at College of Charleston where
he also excelled with the college s soccer
"I came here on a two-week trial
and then they offered me the deal. I
was more than willing to accept it
because the club comprises of several
experienced players who ve played in
the MLS at some point in their careers
and the club itself is well run and has
an ambitious owner."
De Silva is eager to make his debut
for the club which has former US inter-
national and Columbus Crew player
Manny Lagos as its head coach.
"The players and staff have been very
encouraging and welcomed me with
open arms which was a great sign for
me from the start. I m looking forward
to working hard and helping the club
achieve its goals and hopefully get the
opportunity to play at the international
De Silva made his senior debut under
ex-coach Russell Latapy in a friendly
versus Panama in 2009.
Cardiff expresses interest in Jones
Newly-promoted Premier League
club Cardiff City has reportedly
launched a £7m bid for Stoke City strik-
er Kenwyne Jones.
Reports out of England stated Cardiff
has already begun preparing for its
debut in the top flight and is keen to
lure Jones over.
The club s chairman Vincent Tan is
wary of lasting just a solitary season
in the top flight and is prepared to back
Malky Mackay with the money to
launch a £7 million bid for the Stoke
man, the Mirror reported.
"We must support his work and be
positive. We want the best for Cardiff
City," said Tan.
"We are in the Premier League and
understand it is going to be difficult,
but we will do everything we can to
keep our place there."
Corneal part of Fifa team
on visit to Bermuda
T&T Football Federation (TTFF)
technical director Anton Corneal, in
his capacity as a Fifa technical instruc-
tor, was part of a Fifa delegation that
spent a few days in Bermuda last
An appraisal of the Bermuda FA along
with a series of other activities took
place in that country over a week. Fifa
has recently committed $1.3 million to
develop the soon-to-be constructed
Clyde Best Centre of Excellence at Gym
Field as part of their Fifa Goal project.
The other members of the delegation
included Fifa development officer for
the North Caribbean Angenie Kanhai,
Flavia Lopez, manager of Fifa devel-
opment, and Claude Hollenstein, Fifa
"It was a great opportunity for us to
find out more about the development
of the game in Bermuda as well as share
our knowledge and input into how they
can take further steps in the various
stages of their development," said
Corneal s involvement was based
more around coaching development,
an area he is currently also focusing on
in his role as TTFF technical director.
Currently he is overseeing the Atlantic
LNG/TTFF Primary Schools Coaching
programme and will also continue the
C Licence coaching courses as well
as preps for the B Licence this year.
