Since Frank Simek’s release from Carlisle United, he’s been looking for an opportunity to play. That chance just may end up coming in Major League Soccer.
According to D.C. United, Simek took part in the club’s training session on Tuesday morning as a trialist, opening a possibility for the American international defender to play in MLS for the first time.
The 28-year-old played in 38 matches for Carlisle this past season in League One, helping the side out of relegation with a 17th place finish out of 24 teams. He previously played for Sheffield Wednesday, Queens Park Rangers, and AFC Bournemouth after graduating from the Arsenal academy.
Simek also made five appearances for the U.S. Men’s National Team, with three of them coming in the 2007 CONCACAF Gold Cup. He was last called up for a friendly against the Netherlands in 2010, though he did not feature.
What do you make of this news? How do you rate Simek as a defender? Do you believe Simek can help the ailing D.C. United defense?
