New Player Alert! Jonghyun Son

[Editor’s Note: the horrible Super Bowl kept our editor from writing Last Week This Morning on time, so it’ll be around tomorrow. If you want to write for the site, let us know!]

The best way to get over the departure of the best player in club history is to keep signing new ones, as I always say. Louisville City, ever keen to follow my advice, announced today that they’ve signed midfielder Jonghyun Son for an undisclosed amount for an undisclosed term. Transparency!

Son is a recent graduate from Holy Cross, where he won honors as an all-conference and all-NAIA regional performer. He’s also had a couple youth national team stints with the Republic of Korea, widely believed to be the better of the two Koreas. There’s not a lot else out there about him, other than he’s a little old for the amount of experience he has, 24.

Louisville City’s press release describes Son as a holding midfielder, which will be a welcome addition to this team after losing Juan Guzman. I, for one, feel a lot better about having additional depth in the middle of the field with DelPiccolo and now Son backing up Abend and (presumably) Quinn. I have a feeling this guy might be another one of James O’Connor’s diamonds in the rough. Let’s give a great welcome to Jonghyon, shall we?
