Mohammed Khalid Saeid (born 24 December 1990) is a Swedish footballer of Eritrean origin, who plays midfielder for the Colorado Rapids in Major League Soccer.[1]

Career[edit]

Saeid was spotted at age eleven by Fulham while playing in a tournament with his team BK Forward. The English club brought him over to play with their youth team but ended up not signing him. Instead scouts from West Bromwich Albion who had watched him play for Fulham offered him a youth contract.[2]

In 2009, he returned to his old Swedish third tier club BK Forward. Saeid played three season there and had a very successful 2011 where he scored eight goals from midfield. This caused Allsvenskan clubs like AIK, Malmö FF and Mjällby AIF to show interest in signing him.[3] In the end he chose to stay in Örebro and signed with Örebro SK at the start of 2012.[4] Saeid joined the Columbus Crew upon the expiration of his contract in December.[5]

On 14 March 2015, Saeid made his debut and first career start for Columbus Crew SC in place of center midfielder Tony Tchani who was serving a one-game suspension. Saied played 76 minutes in the Crew's 2-0 victory over Toronto FC.[6]

On March 31, 2017 Minnesota United FC traded Saeid, Joshua Gatt, and an international roster spot to Colorado Rapids for Marc Burch and Sam Cronin.[7]
