We’ve reached the time of the MLS season when those teams eliminated from the playoffs are starting to make their roster decisions ahead of 2022. Yesterday Sporting KC made their roster announcements as it was the deadlines for teams to turn their decisions into the league. Other teams have slowly started to release their announcements, and a number of former players have had options not picked up as well. Three former goalkeepers were among those numbers as Alec Kann (Atlanta United), Jon Kempin (DC United), and Adrian Zendejas (Minnesota United) all didn’t have their options picked up. In Kann’s case, he’s not listed among the “Thank You’s” in Atlanta United’s announce, presuming Atlanta is still negotiating with Kann to return. In Kempin’s case, DC announced that they were negotiating with Kempin to return to DC in 2022. As of this time other clubs like the Columbus Crew and Colorado Rapids haven’t announced their moves that could see more former players looking for new teams in 2022.

Elsewhere, the AFF Suzuki 2020 kicks off next week after having been delayed for a year. The cup is a tournament for members of the ASEAN Football Federation, a sub-federation within the Asian Football Confederation and includes members of Southeast Asia. Two former Sporting KC players have been called up for the tournament that starts next week. Martin Steuble has been called up by the Philippines for the tournament while Wan Kuzain has been called up to represent Malaysia. The Philippines kick off the tournament on December 8th vs Singapore while Malaysia’s first game is December 6th against Cambodia.

Here’s the rest of this week’s update.
