Not sure if we can take Cuauhtémoc Blanco’s word about this being the Mexican forward’s last season with the Chicago Fire in the MLS.
The man who offers little in the way of interviews had also announced his retirement from the Mexican national team. Shortly after all the notoriety from millions of supporters for his service to El Tri, he soon announced to head coach Sven-Goran Eriksson that he would in fact be available.
He also said he’d like to stay in México, this after helping Santos Laguna to the semifinals in the country’s Apertura tournament, where he scored in a PK.
So we’ll see what the latest from ‘Temo.’
By the way, the Englishman who went up the hill to Los Angeles, David Beckham, also made plans to stay in Europe.
