Bigger Than Beckham?
While Andriy Shevchenko isn’t the household name David Beckham is, he has far more hardware through the years to show for his career. Shevchenko has had a troubled season. at Chelsea since coming over from AC Milan for a world record transfer fee last year. Shevchenko stated that, “Soccer is growing in the US and I’d like to be a part of that. I played there last summer against the MLS All-Stars and I saw myself that it’s definitely improving.”
Obviously Shevchenko will not be coming over this season since he is still under contract with Chelsea, but when his Blues deal expires in 2009, MLS should make a strong a effort to sign him and place him on the struggling Red Bull NY franchise when they open their new park.
