SI.com is reporting some potentially huge news for MLS. Guillermo Barros Schelotto whose popularity has reached cult status among Boca Juniors fans will sign with the Columbus Crew instead of joining one of several European clubs who had expressed interest. Schelotto has been one of the best players ever in Argentine Football although his success on the club level has not been replicated as an international for his country.
If MLS returned to Miami, the signing of Schelotto would bring a boatload of Boca Juniors fans through the gates. Instead the Argentine legend will toil in small market Columbus, but no doubt exists a player of his pedigree and quality will improve the product on the field even if he makes little impact filling the stands.
