Sad news

We received the sad news this morning that Fred's father has passed away in Brazil.  The midfielder has left New Zealand - where he is on a six-game loan to Wellington FC - to be with his family in Belo Horizonte. 

We at D.C. United offer our most sincere condolonces to Fred and his family.  Please keep them in your thoughts and prayers during this difficult time.
