Across State Lines: Paderborn and Shelton Promote to Bundesliga

New, comments

An update on former Kansas City players.

MLS: Western Conference Semifinal-Sporting Kansas City at Real Salt Lake Chris Nicoll-USA TODAY Sports

The European seasons are winding down for the season, and with that the heartbreak of relegation and the joy of promotion. A couple weeks ago, former homegrown player, Erik Palmer-Brown and NAC Breda relegated from the Eredivisie. This weekend though former Sporting Kansas City forward, Khiry Shelton and his new club SC Paderborn 07 promoted to the Bundesliga even though they lost 3-1 to Dynamo Dresden. It’ll be the club’s first trip back up to the Bundesliga since the 2014-2015 season and only their second time ever in the German top division. Shelton for his part though didn’t have a large role in their run up to promotion as he spent most of his time with the club’s second team in the German fifth tier. He did appear in two games for Paderborn this season for a total of 21 minutes.

Elsewhere, former Kansas City winger, Sal Zizzo called time on his playing career yesterday. His retirement, along with the return of Benny Feilhaber to Kansas City brought hopes that the Benny Feilhaber show would return. Though maybe the two are putting together a podcast. Here’s the rest of this week’s update.
