Chad Marshall at Mainz (updated update to update)

Posted on 26 December 2008 by ASN Staff

The Columbus Crew’s Chad Marshall is training with German second division side FSV Mainz 05, the club reported on its Web site. The 24-year old was due to start tonight’s exhibition match with Darmstadt but is only training with the team through Thursday, the site reports.

Update, Dec. 9:
A German press report says the team will decide by Thursday if it is to offer Marshall a contract. Marshall was closely watched during last night’s game with Darmstadt, the report adds.

Update, Dec. 10:
Marshall was in “good form” today (Wednesday), according to a German press report. Mainz coach Joerg Andersen will take another look at Marshall in training Thursday. On Saturday, he will fly back to the U.S. to wait for a decision, the story adds.

Update Dec. 17: In a German-language interview with a local paper, Mainz manager Christian Heidel said Marshall made a good impression and “flew back [to the U.S.] with a good feeling [about the trial],” implying Marshall has an offer in hand.

Update Dec. 26: The Columbus Crew announced Marshall had resigned with the club. See story.
