As the first player to sign for New York under the Home Grown Player rule, the club is excited about Chirgadze’s potential. Chirgadze missed much of the 2010 season due to injury, but looks to come into the 2011 season healthy and ready to compete for playing time. A gifted offensive player, Chirgadze is a dangerous attacker who can score and set up opportunites for his teammates.
Ha sido el primer jugador en firmar por Nueva York bajo la regla de jugadores locales, y el club está muy entusiasmado con su potencial. Chirgadze perdió gran parte de la temporada 2010 debido a una lesión, pero está recuperado y pronto para tener una gran temporada 2011. Un jugador dotado de un gran poder ofensivo, Chirgadze es un atacante peligroso que puede anotar y/o crear oportunidades para sus compañeros de equipo.
