Philadelphia Union's Jack McInerney says team lacks size

Drew Hallowell

Coming off a disappointing campaign, the Philadelphia Union striker has called for his team to bring on more size and experience during the offseason. McInerney had eight goals and three assists in 25 matches played this season.

On Saturday, striker Jack McInerney became the second Philadelphia Union player in as many days to call for changes in the offseason. The 20-year-old McInerney believes the team needs to add size, as well as experience to the young club.

Here are McInerney's quotes, via Goal.com:

"Some size, and some speed, would be good for us. During the offseason, we can gain experience from this year, and hopefully get some veterans that can teach us new things and carry it over. We definitely need some more pieces to add."

Despite his young age, McInerney was one of the few stabilizing forces for Philadelphia this year. He finished the season with eight goals and three assists in 25 games, after being forced into a more prominent role when the team traded Lionard Pajoy to D.C.

What's most interesting is that McInerney's quotes came just one day after Union captain Carlos Valdes shared similar sentiments with Goal.com about the team bringing in help this offseason.
