Sporting KC begins season shorthanded, Pulskamp to start in goal

Sporting Kansas City will go into the season opener versus the New York Red Bulls shorthanded with Tim Melia out. Melia is expected to be back “in a few weeks.”

“John Pulskamp is our keeper and we will be announcing that we have a short term loan on a keeper,” Sporting KC manager Peter Vermes told media.

Telling fans that the number one keeper is out is never the news you want to hear as a fan or deliver as the coach. Veteran keeper Kendall McIntosh is also out along with Academy graduate Brooks Thompson.
