Luke Rodgers set for hearing
June 13, 2012
Luke Rodgers, the talismanic striker who was denied entry to the US earlier this year, could return soon... possibly. Last week, "Clever" Hans Backe spoke of a potential new hearing, and now a date has emerged: this Thursday, according to the NY Post. Rodgers will visit the US Consulate in an attempt to reclaim his visa and return to the club where he so quickly became beloved. The answer should be known in a week.
Since his denial, Rodgers has been playing for Lillestrom in Norway, scoring on his debut. After Juan Agudelo's trade and Jhonny Arteaga's struggles, Metro desperately needs a third striker, and Rodgers perfectly fits the bill.
