Albert Rusnak not focusing on “contract situation,” he tells reporters

Everyone will know what’s going with it, the RSL star says.

MLS: Real Salt Lake at Portland Timbers Troy Wayrynen-USA TODAY Sports

Just in case you’d forgotten that Real Salt Lake has yet to officially announce a contract extension for Albert Rusnak, the player himself has issued a slightly surprising reminder.

The reporting comes from Salt Lake Tribune beat writer Alex Vejar, who says that Rusnak has said that there will be further light on the situation before the end of the season.

Now, what exactly that means is certainly up for debate.

It’s not the sort of distraction Real Salt Lake needs ahead of our first playoff game in some time, but it does provide confirmation on what I’ve suspected: Albert Rusnak’s contract deal is not done, despite what Stu Holden said on national TV at the end of September.

What’s the truth behind all this? It’s tough to know at this point. If we lose Albert Rusnak on a cheap transfer during the offseason because he’s forced his way out after not getting a new contract, it will make everything all the more bizarre.
