Remember back in preseason when San Jose was supposedly interested in Trinidad & Tobago striker Cornell Glen? Well in light of the Quakes’ recent struggles it appears that interest has been rekindled.
“He’s been training in Trinidad,” said Yallop of Glen. “We had some interest in him the beginning of the year, but he Wasn’t quite sure what he was going to do. Now I think…we want to see what he’s all about, so we’ve brought him in for this week.”
Yallop indicated that the Quakes do have a discovery claim on Glen, so the Quakes can take their time in assessing his ability without worrying about another club coming in and stealing him away.
Glen spent the 2008 T&T Pro League season with San Juan Jabloteh, where he scored three goals. According to the T&T Guardian, the clubs financial woes saw many senior players depart for other domestic clubs, with Glen signing on for United Petrotrin. Whether that means the Quakes will need to pay a transfer fee in order to acquire Glen isn’t known at the moment.
Glen spent parts of three seasons in MLS beginning in 2004. He spent time with New York, Dallas, Columbus, Colorado, and Los Angeles, where an injury sidelined him for the last half of the 2006 season.
Glen has scored 21 goals in 54 appearances for the T&T national team.
