Gedion Zelalem 'good enough' for the Premier League after Rangers loan

Arsenal goalkeeper Petr Cech says that American Gedion Zelalem has great potential and has a chance to make the first team.
Despite pleasing sponsors, Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger believes foreign tours come at the expense of valuable training time.

SAN JOSE, Calif. -- Arsenal and U.S. youth international Gedion Zelalem praised the impact that his loan spell at Rangers has had on his development.

Zelalem made 28 league and cup appearances with the Scottish side last season, helping the club gain promotion to the Scottish Premier League, as well as reach the Scottish Cup final, where Rangers fell to Hibernian 3-2.

But a closer inspection of the squad list reveals plenty of up-and-comers, too. Add in Wednesday's Homegrown game (9 p.m. ET, mlssoccer.com) against Mexico's under-20 national team, and there's no shortage of young MLSers who have a chance to make their mark at home -- and, eventually, across the Atlantic -- in the months and years to come.

Jermaine Jones highlights what has impressed him the most about the Colorado Rapids since joining the club.

SAN JOSE, Calif. -- U.S. international midfielder Jermaine Jones said he is pleased that manager Jurgen Klinsmann will be sticking around a while.

Klinsmann has been linked to several managerial vacancies since leading the U.S. to the semifinals of the Copa America last month. Most were shot down quickly, but one that persisted was England, with overseas reports hinting strongly that the English FA was interested in interviewing Klinsmann.

Ultimately, Sam Allardyce got the job, and just how much...
