CHESTER, Pa. (CBS) –- He was a Philadelphia Union original, and now he sits in the broadcasters’ booth at PPL Park. Alejandro Moreno talks with KYW’s Greg Orlandini and Philly Soccer Page writer Eli Pearlman-Storch on the KYW Philly Soccer Show.
Moreno played forward for the Union in the team’s first year, scoring two goals in 26 games. He wrapped up a sucessful ten-year career last year playing for Chivas USA, then made the move to broadcasting.
Along with his Union duties, he is also an ESPN commentator during broadcasts of the Mexican National Team and this year’s Confederations Cup.
Moreno talks about the Union as they move into second place in the East. He also discusses his move from the pitch to the broadcast booth.
Then, Greg and Eli talk about the Union’s big 3-0 win against the New York Red Bulls.
The team took battered New York all game, who played with ten men for most of the match due to a Lloyd Sam red card after a hard foul on Danny Cruz.
But there is another tough test ahead for Philadelphia, as FC Dallas comes to town. Dallas sits third in the West and has one of the strongest rosters in MLS.
