Where is Gooch?

July 10, 2008

According to several Belgian press reports, Standard Liege does not know where to find its American defender Oguchi Onyewu. Despite much speculation about where Onyewu may transfer next year (Fulham, FC Cologne, French League), the team has started training and expected him at practice. Standard played a friendly match tonight against Amay without Onyewu and club officials report they have been trying to contact “Gooch” but have had no contact with him since June 22nd.

Is he taking a well deserved rest after a tiring year of club and international matches or are he and his agent trying to work out the perfect deal? Maybe both.

Onyewu: Interest from FC Cologne and Fulham

July 2, 2008

US defender Oguchi Onyewu is still drawing great interest from FC Cologne coach Christoph Daum but the German club also reports that they are facing competition from an English club which they did not identify. Later, Belgian soccer magazine Voetbal Belgie identified the club as (surprise, surprise) Fulham. Any transfer from Belgian champion Standard Liege, Onyewu’s current club, is expected to run 2.5-3 million euros.
