BRIDGEVIEW, IL - MAY 11: Wells Thompson #15 of the Chicago Fire chases down the ball in front of Jack McInerney #9 of the Philadelphia Union during an MLS match at Toyota Park on May 11, 2013 in Bridgeview, Illinois. The Union defeated the Fire 1-0.
Kleberson is one of the best professionals I’ve been around in the short time that I’ve been around him ... He understands that you come to work every single day, you do everything you can as a player to put yourself in a position to be selected. He said, ‘Whenever you want to put me in, I’m ready.’ And that’s what you want from any pro.
We haven’t talked about it but the players have talked about it ... When you hear things like that, I know I don’t have to go and reinforce those messages. If players are saying those things, that’s what you want. It’s good to know that a guy like Michael (Lahoud), and I know I heard it from Jeff (Parke), (captain Brian Carroll) and Sebastien (Le Toux) that this is a really important game for us.
