DC United head coach Ben Olsen says Federico Higuain is in full training, will play in Orlando

Veteran Argentine playmaker Federico Higuain is in full training for D.C. United and will play for the Black-and-Red in the MLS is Back Tournament in Orlando, head coach Ben Olsen has told The Athletic's Pablo Maurer.

The 35-year-old Higuain is now more than a year removed from a torn ACL that prematurely ended his service for Columbus Crew SC across portions of eight seasons.

The Crew moved on from Higuain as a player after 2019, but made clear he would be welcome back to the organization in a front office or coaching capacity.

Instead, Higuain took an offer to become a player-coach for Olsen's squad that was made official in early March.
