PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – The Philadelphia Union have made their first off-season moves, and the KYW Philly Soccer Show has Coach John Hackworth to talk about it.
In part one, Coach Hackworth talked with KYW‘s Greg Orlandini and Philly Soccer Page writer Eli Pearlman-Storch about
losing veteran midfielder Justin Mapp to Montreal Impact in the expansion draft. But, they have claimed speedy midfielder Nizar Khalfan off waivers from Vancouver Whitecaps. Hackworth talks about losing Mapp and some of the other possible moves in the off season.

In part two, Greg and Eli continue to look at what the Union may do as they gear up for the 2012 MLS campaign. A lack of size hurt the team in the plays and the Union could look for a tall, strong forward to compliment Danny Mwanga and Sebastian Le Toux. With the Olympics this summer, the team could lose three players to National Team duty and would have to fill those gaps.
