I think he'll be back but I can't see him playing anywhere else but MLS. I'm not going to say we're any better than other countries in the world when it comes to hate speech and all that but I think the MLS fans are more open minded. I could be totally wrong. I think he has a lot to offer still for football, even the national team.
