"I have known him for a long time, and he is so motivated and he is extremely fit. This is the fittest I have ever seen him... Our goal with Santino is to have a consistent, healthy season, and if he can do that with the fitness and his qualities, he is going to help us tremendously."

Coach Curt Onalfo on Santino Quaranta, via Soccer Insider. With so many departures from the team this offseason, and only a few new additions, DC United is going to have to look to some of their returning players to step up in bigger ways than ever before. Sounds like Quaranta is ready to be one of them.
