Ahead of the club's return to the pitch against FC Cincinnati on Saturday night, Philadelphia Union Head Coach Jim Curtin provided an update on the status of the squad.
“To answer it bluntly yes. [Mikael] has worked very hard with his fitness. He has a good partnership whether he is paired with Julian in training or whether he is paired with Cory., they have done a good job working hard together. Mikael's fitness has been built and it's in a good spot right now and I certainly think that we'll approach the game and attack it with our best lineup. As of right now, he's been very sharp and been one of the best players so it is very likely he'll be in the starting lineup."
