Jimenez growing into rightback role for Crew

The Crew has started no fewer than five different players at rightback this season, as Sporting Director and Head Coach Gregg Berhalter has tried out different combinations and players with varying tactical skillsets. Of late, Hector Jimenez has been getting the nod at the position. Jimenez, a converted wide midfielder, has done very well in the role and provides the offensive ability to get forward and create.

This is why Emanuel Pogatetz was brought to Columbus. Faced with an injury to defender Michael Parkhurst, ripe in the cauldron of Red Bull Arena, the Crew benefited greatly from the Austrians presence in Sundays 3-1 win.

According to the defender, it was a difficult assignment for a multitude of reasons, but in the end he was pleased with both his personal play and that of his clubs. Read More
