Feilhaber to Stay in Europe

MOST COMMENTED

U.S. midfielder Benny Feilhaber will not be leaving Derby County for Major League Soccer, according to separate reports on the Web. In fact, in an ESPN interview, Feilhaber implies that unless Derby manager Paul Jewell tells him to look for work elsewhere, he'll be staying. "I made the right choice coming to Derby," Feilhaber said after being asked if he had any regrets about the move. "I remain confident that I will get the chance soon and prove that the decision made to come here was the right one."

Feilhaber, who cost Derby $2 million from Hamburg SV of the German Bundesliga, came to England hoping for more opportunities to play first-team soccer. But it hasn't worked out that way: since his arrival in August, Feilhaber has made just one start in eight total appearances for the Rams. "It is always tough when you're not playing much and it is a struggle mentally to keep yourself going every day of training and even outside the football field," the 22-year-old Feilhaber admitted. "It's tough to keep your thoughts right as to why you're over here in Europe -- all by yourself."

In an interview with Yanks Abroad, agent Henner Janzen confirms Feilhaber's desire to stick it out in Europe: "Benny really isn't interested in a move back to MLS right now," Janzen says, although he reveals that Feilhaber may yet move before the end of the January transfer window. "The deal with Maccabi [Tel-Aviv] isn't completely out of the picture yet," he says. Derby had nixed the move because the two sides couldn't agree to a transfer price.
