In This Week’s Edition
I will be covering the peculiar topic of Russell Teibert and whether he is better off staying with the Caps or going elsewhere on loan. As many fans will have noticed and may or may not be happy about, Teibert receives next to no minutes on the pitch. He is a versatile player who is capable of playing in the midfield or in the back line. Some may recall his brilliant performances with the U23 Canadian national team as an outside back in the CONCACAF Olympic Qualifiers last year.
What’s The Right Move For Teibert?
So the question arises, if Teibert is not receiving enough playing time in Vancouver, would it be better for his development to stick around or to be sent out on loan?
Let’s begin with the advantages and disadvantages of Russell sticking around in Vancouver.
It is still a little difficult to decide whether Russell Teibert is better off in Vancouver or out on loan based on those points I just listed. Let’s look at the advantages of disadvantages of him going out on loan.
The Final Verdict
With all these advantages and disadvantages taken into consideration, I think it is a better move for Russell Teibert to be sent out on loan. It is not effective for him to sit and rot on the bench by receiving minimal amounts of playing time. If he were sent to an NASL or USL side, he would still be in a professional environment, as well as receiving good training and competition. This way he will be given the room he needs to grow and flourish because down the road he will be a true asset to the Caps. Russell has great potential and he will surely be a fantastic player for the Canadian national team and of course, for the Whitecaps organization.
