Brad Guzan May Give Boruc a Run For His Money?
January 22, 2008
Celtic have given the green light for MLS goalkeeper of the year Brad Guzan to trial with the club. Some pundits are riding the rumor mill in suggesting that Guzan may be the favored first choice over Artur Boruc.
Don’t you just love rumor mills? While I think that Guzan is a very good shot stopper (as seen in the video below), I don’t see how or why Celtic would replace Boruc. The Pole has signed on a new contract extension, and he played a sublime season last year with some stellar performances.
The interesting thing to see is Boruc whom is Polish, and Guzan a young American of Polish descent get to train together. Boruc has been known for some provocation to opposing fans and has even gone toe to toe with his fellow players, so it will be interesting to see how Guzan shows of his wares in training sessions alongside Boruc.
Guzan has played superbly since appearing in the Milk Cup in 2003, and has courted interest from many of Europes tops clubs since, culminating in his selection as the MLS Goalkeeper of the Year for 2007. Following is a video of Guzan’s performances in the MLS for 2007.
