T&T senior team midfielder Kevan George may well be on the look out for a new club after his contract with American MLS club Columbus Crew came to an end this month. But reports have stated that the club is negotiating George and forwards Jack McInerney and Aaron Schoenfeld contracts to keep them at the club. Columbus also released four players at the end of this season.
The 25-year-old George played in the recent 2018 World Cup Qualifier versus the United States and has been a regular member of Stephen Hart’s squad for the past two years.
“At the moment there are talks about where my future lies in club football. I’ve had a tremendous experience with Columbus Crew and I’m thankful for that. I will know shortly where I will be playing my football in 2016,” George said.
“I think overall I will have to say that 2015 has been a good year for me. I felt my form was quite good with the national team and most importantly I would say the team had a successful year when you look at our performance at the Gold Cup and the start that we have made to the 2018 World Cup campaign.
“Most important for us now is that we can keep the momentum going and build on our success up this point. I think the head coach Stephen Hart has been doing a good job and has been an inspiring figure in the team. But the main thing, like I said, is for us to keep on working and staying focused at the task at hand.
“We have the Copa America qualifier in January and then the two World Cup qualifiers against St Vincent in March and we need to be well prepared for these games. I think collectively we can make a lot of good things happen for the team and for football in the country.”
