Jalil Anibaba will not be the only member of the Chicago Fire training with Atletico Madrid in the coming weeks.
Austin Berry, the recently-named 2012 MLS Rookie of the Year, will join Anibaba as Fire players who will practice alongside the likes of red-hot striker Radamel Falcao and centerback Diego Godin at Atletico this offseason. Berry will begin a two-week training stint with the reigning Europa League champions on Nov. 25 and it will end on Dec. 9, the Fire announced on Friday.
Chicago had announced Monday that Anibaba would train with the La Liga club on a two-week stint that runs from Nov. 18 through Dec. 2.
What do you think of Berry training with Atletico Madrid? Think he and Anibaba will learn a lot from playing against the likes of Falcao? Should the Fire should send all of their defenders there?
