Lil’ Franco Niell is worried about his lack of playing time and with Dave Kasper openly maligning his performance, it’s safe to say he should be.
“He has not shown the tenacity, the work rate, the energy that he had when he first came,” United General Manager Dave Kasper said of Niell, who was impressive throughout preseason. “Some players have difficulty adjusting — the league, the language — and I think that is the case with Franco.”
With a salary of $152k, DC won’t wait around to jettison him, presumably, back to Argentina… Hopefully American Airlines doesn’t think he’s 8 years-old and lets him fly to Buenos Aries unattended.
I won’t miss him. What a disappointment.
