Dogged determination connects Sporting’s Besler and Zusi

One way or another, Sporting KC’s Matt Besler and Graham Zusi have been tethered together since each was drafted in 2009. And they will be for the foreseeable future. As paupers with the then-Wizards, the Sporting KC stars became roommates at Besler’s parents’ house in Overland Park, where Zusi flopped in the basement. Now, four days before the MLS Cup game against Real Salt Lake on Saturday at Sporting Park, they were named to the league’s Best XI team for the second straight season.
