Schelotto Changes View On Game-Winning Ekpo

MOST COMMENTED

The Columbus Crew's veteran Argentine midfielder, Guillermo Barros Schelotto, has shown many fine touches since arriving in MLS last year. He's also not been slow to express his exasperation at the shortcomings of some of the players around him.
 
Saturday was a case in point. According to Shawn Mitchell, the first-half efforts of Nigerian team-mate Emmanuel Ekpo, making just his second MLS appearance, left Schelotto "with hands on hips followed by arms outstretched toward the rookie, visibly frustrated with multiple missed connections and blown opportunities."
 
But in the second half Ekpo "redeemed himself with an eye-popping run through a gaggle of defenders that ended with the 20-year-old burying a late game winner."  Schelotto, who scored the other goal from the penalty spot in the Crew's 2-1 home win over the Colorado Rapids, conceded after the game that he had been too harsh. "Not much more will I show my hands to him," he said. "He will be more consistent with more time. Even Europe for him, maybe."
