Report: Schelotto re-signs with Crew

The future of Guillermo Barros Schelotto was one of the many questions surrounding the Columbus Crew this offseason. That's one question that can now be answered, as reports indicate the Argentine has re-signed with the club.

According to the Columbus Dispatch, the Crew were able to come to an agreement that will keep Schelotto in Columbus for the 2010 season. His new contract is a one-year deal, with the club holding an option on his contract for 2011. He will not take up the Crew's Designated Player spot either.

"They really figured out a way to come back and make it happen," Schelotto's agent Peter Smith told the Dispatch. "Guillermo always wanted to come back. It would have been a shame if he didn't under those circumstances."

Bringing Schelotto back is an important move for the Crew who failed to overcome eventual MLS Cup Champions Real Salt Lake in the first round of the 2009 playoffs. The 2008 MVP has been a crucial part of their attack since arriving at the club three years ago.

What do you think about Schelotto re-signing? Glad to see the Crew make it happen?
