Last week, Sigi Schmid said Freddie Ljungberg would be available off the bench for the opener. On Monday, Ljungberg said he won’t play in the opener and will be ready for the second game March 28.
So what is the truth and what isn’t? I asekd Schmid that very question today.
“Gotta keep you guys guessing, don’t we?” Schmid said. “If we don’t keep you guys guessing then it’s no fun and everything becomes easy. But it’s something that we’re continuing to talk about and debate and we’ll see. Freddie could be coming off the bench. He won’t start, I guarantee you that. But his role…that’s something that we know and something you’ll find out on Thursday.”
What seems pretty clear is that Peter Vagenas, Chris Eylander and Taylor Graham won’t play Thursday. All are dealing with longer-term injuries.
