Tim Howard is eyeing a return to action for Colorado Rapids.
The player who spent a decade in the Premier League is facing a difficult time after a “quiet” off season as he described and recovering full fitness after an injury in November.
Everton long time goalkeeper until last year revealed why he exited Manchester United after four years at Old Trafford.
The bearded shot stopper wrote his autobiography titled ‘The Keeper’ saying that some players would have been content being just a back up in a top team like United but he wanted more.
Colorado Rapids goalkeeper Tim Howard is expected to be out for 4 months after being injured.
He suffered a knock while representing the United States in the match against Mexico and has had to undergo a surgery.
Tim Howard, who recently suffered an adductor strain against Mexico on Friday night, has been declared unfit for USA’s World Cup qualifiers against Costa Rica on Tuesday.
He therefore is expected to return to Colorado, where he plays at club level for the Rapids so as to undergo further evaluations and any treatments.
This was the position of former Everton goalkeeper, Tim Howard who believes it was the right time for him to leave Everton after uncovering he would join the Colorado Rapids in MLS.
The 37-year old goalkeeper has joined them at Goodison Park since 2007, appearing over 400 times for the Merseyside club after joining from Manchester United.
Tim Howard has warned Premier League fans that they should not take new Swansea manager Bob Bradley lightly.
There may be a tendency to look Bradley with a hint of suspicion given that he has not made his name at the top level of the game. Instead, Bradley has focused more on the MLS football and the United States national team. Coming straight into the Premier League requires a lot of skill and talent, which Bradley possesses in abundance according to Howard. The former Everton goalkeeper knows a thing or two about the manager after having played under him with the national team over the last few years.
Major League Soccer boss Don Garber says he is open to the idea of troubled Red Devils play maker Bastian Schweinsteiger joining the league. The 32-year old recently retired German international has been snubbed from the first team by Coach Jose Mourinho.
The Portuguese tactician has banished him to training with the Under 23 squad. This is fuelling the rumours that the player might eventually leave the club, despite earlier claims that he wouldn’t but would remain hopeful.
Tim Howard is 37 years old and he is still making appearances not only for his current club, Colorado Rapids but also for the United States national football team.
The veteran shot-stopper was recently featured in the USA national side that faced off with Trinidad and Tobago in their final 2018 FIFA World Cup qualifying match which saw the American team claiming a 4-0 triumph.
Tim Howard has been identified as the reason behind the exit of Zac Macmath from Colorado Rapids as he was unsure of a starting place.
Macmath was jittery as soon as the deal of Tim Howard was announced as he knew the club couldn’t buy the player for such amount and keep him on the bench. The coach Pablo Mastroeni liked the players fighting for their shirt but he knew the quality of Howard.
Former Everton number one goal stopper Tim Howard helped Colorado Rapids past Sporting Kansas City as they won by a lone goal.
The 1-0 win extends the club’s franchise-record unbeaten streak to 14 games now. The club hasn’t lost any game since April and Marlon Hairston ensured they kept that record.
Hairston came on into the game in the 62nd minute for Marco Pappa got the ball from Dillon Powers and sent it to the top right corner. The game makes the third for Tim Howard in the Major League Soccer since 2003 when he left. He spent 13 years in England with his last decade at Everton FC. However, he was relegated to second choice at the Copa America tournament in the United States team but has found his form back with the American club.
