Zidane Possibly Moving To Los Angeles

0 comments suggest edit

Zinedine Zidane I hear from a fairly reliable source that after the World Cup, Zinedine Zidane plans to move to Los Angeles to get into some kind of entertainment. That in and of itself is not exceedingly interesting. However, this source also tells me that Zidane has been offered a spot on the Hollywood United roster thanks to the other ex-French national team player, Frank LeBeouf.

That means that sometime in the near future, there is a small chance (you know how plans can change) that I may play in a soccer game against Zinedine Zidane, one of the world’s best players! Even though on the field, he will be just another opponent, I will probably bring my camera and try and get a pic with him before the game.

Although we would be in the same league, we are definitely not in the same league. Honestly, this all sounds a bit outlandish. I mean, he currently plays on Real Madrid for Pete’s sake! He is by no means over the hill yet. He could, if he wanted, join the MLS and completely dominate. Going from Real Madrid to our league would be a major drop in action.

On the other hand, if he really is retiring, a low key game once a week might be just the thing to keep in shape and not place such demands on his time.

In any case, does anybody out there know of any ex-professionals who are looking for a league in Los Angeles? Brazillian national team players are especially welcome. Whatever happened to Bebeto and Romario?

    Don't know about Bebeto, since he retired I've lost his tracks. Romario has not retired, though. He still plays with the Vasco da Gama. That man is amazing: on 2005 season he had a special arrangement with the club, which includes the right to decide when to train with the rest of the team, the right to play only local games, and the right to go to discos and enjo9y the night life as he sees fit. And he's older than forty. With all of that going on, he was the 2005 top scorer of Brasil's league, with 22 goals. Now he's retired, but he has signed to play 5 months with Miami's team on MFL, with an agreement to come back to Vasco once the american league is over.
    And no, I don't like fútbol very much. But I'm a Spaniard: here you practically have to breathe the damn stuff. I'm a Barcelona supporter, by the way.
    And don't get me started with the damned soccer/football issue: how can you call a game football when they only touch the ball with their feet every once in a while?
    Funny enough, I prefer your football to our soccer: I think it's a more beautiful, strategic and intelligent sport. But that's me, almost all my friends say that I shoulda been born american.

    Romario has just signed with Miami F.C. to play in the U.S.L. He'll be joining former team-mate and 94'World Cup champion Zinho.
    Many of the 94 roster have retired or are about to do so.
