U.S. Olympic team midfielder Benny Feilhaber has completed a move to Danish club AGF Aarhus, leaving English club Derby County for his third European team in three seasons.
Feilhaber, who came off the bench for the U.S. Olympic team in the recent Olympic tournament, spent a disappointing season at Derby County, where he struggled mightily for playing time. His summer was spoiled by a knee injury suffered in the Under-23 Toulon Tournament in France, but he worked his way back in time to become a part of the U.S. Olympic Team.
As for his flirtation with Major League Soccer, in the end MLS could not compete financially with AGF Aarhus. Financial terms of Feilhaber’s agreement with the Danish club have not been disclosed. He now joins fellow american Jeremiah White at the Danish club.
What do you think of Feilhaber’s move? Sad to see him go somewhere other than a big European league? Think Denmark is a good place to rebuild his confidence and career? Happy as can be that he didn’t wind up with the New England Revolution?
