Alejandro Bedoya Set for Trial With Birmingham
Alejandro Bedoya may be on the move.
The 23-year-old midfielder, currently playing with Örebro in Sweden, is on trial with Birmingham City, according to multiple reports.
The time seems right.
Bedoya has done well in the Allsvenskan, and he’s probably ready to test himself against better competition.
But is a jump to the Premier League the right decision?
It’s a brutally physical league, and the competition for playing time will be fierce.
Still, if you read MLS Talk’s interview with him recently, you know he wants to play at the highest level.
“I see myself still playing soccer at a high level with a great club in a top league. God willing with hard work and dedication I can get to where I would like to be and where many people dream to play,” he said.
You can argue that his pace and skill is well suited for the EPL, or you could point out his relative inexperience on the game’s biggest stages.
But really, we won’t know unless he tries it.
