Barrett starts, goes 55 minutes in first match on loan with Vålerenga

CARSON, Calif. – First appearance, first start for Chad Barrett with Norwegian club Vålerenga.

After departing the  LA Galaxy on loan earlier in the week, Barrett was in the starting lineup for the club for their 4-2 defeat to FK Haugesund on Friday. The 27-year-old striker nearly tallied twice for Vålerenga, but was unable to get on the score sheet during his 55 minutes of action. 

Barrett’s club is now in sixth place with 18 Tippeligaen matches left on the docket, but will face off against Manchester United in a friendly on Sunday.
