KENYA BROWN - Friday, October 18, 2013
Hannover captain and U.S. national team right back Steve Cherundolo may not have to look long for a job after he ends his playing career.

According to a report by the Associated Press, team president Martin Kind told the Bild newspaper that he would like the former University of Portland Pilot to stay with the team after his playing career, adding that they would find a function for him.

Cherundolo, 34, has spent his entire professional career with the Lower Saxony side, having signed with the team in 1999 when they were playing in the German second division. He has been a mainstay in the team since their promotion to the Bundesliga in 2002, earning the nickname the "Mayor of Hannover" from his peers.

It is unknown as to what role the long-serving U.S. national team member will be offered or whether he will be interested in taking up a post with the team in the future, but the news is a sign of Hannover's adoration for the currently injured captain whose contract runs out at the end of this season.

Cherundolo is currently sidelined from the fifth-placed team after undergoing knee surgery over the summer.

A big question for U.S. fans heading into the World Cup is surely on Jozy Altidore and just what is plaguing the young striker at Sunderland.
