Willkommen Stefan Aigner!
Wednesday afternoon the Rapids announced the signing of the German born winger from 1860 Munich in what is a 3 1/2 year contract. Story here.
Is this the missing attacking piece to cure the Rapids scoring woes this season? We wont know for some time. A lot of this will depend on how quickly he is able to get comfortable in his new setting of course. How Pablo uses him is a huge factor, because it’s Pablo we’re talking about. How he uses anyone on the roster is and always seems to be a question mark.
The thought looks to be with this signing and with everyone healthy of course, is that Aigner on the right wing, which would have Marlon Hairston moving to right back where he has played a few times this season. Hairston would still be able to provide an attacking option from that position when necessary. This move also would allow Eric Miller to move back into his natural left back position.
Are there more moves to come from the RFO before the transfer window closes? We’ll have to wait and see.
