D.C. United signs Ted Ku-DiPietro, USWNT adds Gautrat & Weaver, and more: Freedom Kicks for 1/14/2022

It was a big news day for D.C. United, and I didn’t do much of note to talk about in this opening beyond watch a woman at the grocery store just stare into the abyss of a completely empty egg section.

I hope she managed to recover enough to locate some eggs, because honestly the sight of the empty shelves seemed to leave her lost as to what to do next.

Meanwhile, United signed their 17th homegrown player in Ted Ku-DiPietro, and I’m psyched. He looked ready to take the step last year with Loudoun, and it doesn’t seem like he’s done what has been a rapid improvement as a player over the last 18 months.

Speaking of Loudoun, they got a new assistant coach in Frédéric Brillant, who has retired but is staying with the club and joining Ryan Martin’s staff. Over the years, Brillant has shown a real interest in helping the young players along, and has been working with the academy as he’s progressed as a coach (including recently getting his USSF B License). For a club that had very few people putting down roots, a player retiring to become a coach within the organization is a big plus.
