Friday Freedom Kicks: Bill Hamid out for 2-3 months, Washington Spirit return home, Rooney rumors, and more

MLS: D.C. United at Inter Miami CF Sam Navarro-USA TODAY Sports

Happy match day Black-and-Red supporters! D.C. United take on Philadelphia Union tonight at 7:30 pm ET. Looking for a watch party for tonight’s match? Link up with other Black-and-Red supporters at Mission Navy Yard for the official Heineken Watch Party.

D.C. United shared this afternoon that Bill Hamid underwent surgery for a hand injury and will be out for the next 2-3 months (essentially the rest of the season). We’re all wishing Bill a swift recovery!

Loudoun United player Sami Guediri saw another call up to the first team today. He will be available for tonight's match against the Union.

And now, probably the reason you’re here... we all saw the rumor of Wayne Rooney rejoining D.C. United as head coach that was flying around the internet more insistently than a mosquito at a DMV BBQ.

Sorry friends. Black and Red United checked in with D.C. United this morning, and we can sadly say there is nothing to report on this story for now.
