DC United will not need to clear any extra space on the roster to make room for Branko Boskovic, the Montenegrin midfielder who was acquired today, as he will be categorized as a smaller designated player.
United General Manager Dave Kasper had this to say on the acquisition:
"He is an honest two-way player with special attacking qualities," United General Manager Dave Kasper said. "A very good passer, very good running with ball, excellent long-range shot and a very good finisher inside the box. He is also very dangerous on set pieces - taking them as well as he is very good in the air, he scores a lot with his head - and he is tactically very smart. So all those things we feel will help us move forward."
Kasper, when asked about United's plans for the rest of the summer, did not rule out the possibility of additional roster moves.
