Gabriel Slonina on Franck Klopas “scary” potential

    Chicago Fire interim boss Frank Klopas says young goalkeeper Gabriel Slonina has “scary” potential.

    At just 17-years-old, Slonina has already overhauled Bobby Shuttleworth to become the Fire’s No.1 recently, making seven appearances since early August. The teenager became MLS’ youngest-ever goalkeeper and the youngest to keep a clean sheet on his debut in the Fire’s 0-0 draw with NYCFC.

    Thus far, Slonina has conceded 1.43 goals per 90 minutes compared to Shuttleworth’s 1.65, while he’s also saved 70.6% of the shots he’s faced vs 67.3% by his older counterpart.

    Slonina made no fewer than six saves as the Fire managed an impressive 2-2 draw away at runaway Supporters’ Shield leaders New England Revolution on Saturday. After the match, Klopas predicted we’ll still be talking about Slonina in 10-15 years’ time, hailing his maturity at such a young age.

    “Yeah, he’s a young guy. I mean, it’s amazing… He’s 17, it’s incredible,” said Klopas. “But you can just see his maturity, and I think he’s a guy that Adin Brown, our goalkeeping coach, has done an unbelievable job with. But he’s very grounded.
