Hudson: You've got a jewel

Posted on 21 August 2003  - 12:00

Tottenham Hotspur (Spurs) Football Club is located in North London. The club is also known as Spurs. Tottenham's home ground is White Hart Lane. The club motto is Audere est Facere (To dare is to do).

DC United coach Ray Hudson reckons we've picked out a real jewel of American soccer in Bobby Convey.

We've agreed terms with the left-sided midfielder and the deal is now subject of a work permit application.

Hudson has seen the 20-year-old blossom in his time as coach at DC United.

"You're getting a very energetic, very speedy, poised, talented footballer with an incredible engine," he said.

"His pace is second to none. He’s a real little jackrabbit type of player who can get away from other players in a twinkle of an eye.

"He's still a young man but his talent is undeniable and he will rise to the occasion under the guidance of Glenn Hoddle and his staff."

Bobby already has 18 international caps to his name having made his US national debut aged 17 years, 151 days - the third youngest cap in America's history.

He was also the youngest player to score in the MLS at 17 years, 10 months and 11 days when he notched against Kansas City in October 2001.
