Feilhaber also happens to be of Jewish descent. Couple that with an ability to play soccer well and how could Maccabi not approach! Alas, it was not to be.
However, Derby executives did say that there has been other interest in Feilhaber.
"There is a lot of interest in Benny in the MLS in the States and it is something that is likely to be pursued, therefore we feel it is in the best interests of the club and the player to get him back with us."
Going back to the MLS? Honestly, that can't be a good move for a twenty-two year-old. He needs to stay in a league where he will constantly be challenged by players better than him. The MLS can't provide that for him. He needs to go back to Germany or play in Holland to get playing time.
