Bakary Soumaré, currently a defender with the Chicago Fire, talks with KYW’s Greg Orlandini and Philly Soccer Page writer Eli Pearlman-Storch about his all-too-brief time at PPL Park.
The Malian international was brought in with much fanfare, but a long injury layoff and a coaching change saw Soumaré make only four league appearances for the team.
Although here just a short time, he talks about the bond he still shares with some of the Union players.
He also discusses the up-and-down year his current team is going through. They are fighting for their playoff lives as they head to Philadelphia on Thursday.READ MORE: Man Killed, 16-Year-Old Student Shot In Head After Fight Near Lincoln High School, Philadelphia Police Say
