8-5 Honorary Member of Sporting KC

((HT: SportingKC/MLS))

Sporting Kansas City announced Chad Ochocinco has been named an "honorary member" of SKC after his six-day tryout. Ochocinco can duck back in and re-join the team for reserve training and workouts during the MLS season.

“This is a positive outcome for everyone involved,” Sporting Kansas City Manager Peter Vermes said. “It’s been great to have Chad here and we’ll welcome him back when he’s ready to return. He’s been a true professional throughout his tryout, he has fit right in with the other players and he has been a great presence in the locker room. He has definitely earned the right to be an honorary member of the squad.”

“I had a great six days here...just to be able to grace the pitch with these guys was awesome,” Ochocinco said. “It’s always been a dream of mine to play the game of soccer. Manager Vermes was kind enough to allow me to stay here at will to train with the reserves and continue to get myself in shape.”
