PHILADELPHIA, Pa. (CBS) — The Philadelphia Union finally got their man, and we have him here this week on the KYW Philly Soccer Show. New striker Fernando Aristeguieta talks with KYW’s Greg Orlandini and Philly Soccer Page writer Eli Pearlman-Storch. The Venezuelan international comes to the Union on loan from FC Nantes of France’s Ligue 1, where he scored nine goals in 45 league games since 2013. He says the Union first targeted him in November to join the team. “El Colorado,” as he is known, says he is happy to come to the U.S. and hopes to make his move to Philadelphia permanent.
Greg and Eli also talk about the other new signing, local product goalkeeper John McCarthy. The La Salle University grad will likely see playing time this year, with the other keepers Andre Blake and Rais Mbholi both expected to be away from the team on national team duty this season.
