Former Juve and Lazio Star on Trial with Chicago

Marcelo Salas, the Chilean footballing legend who led his nation to the 1998 World Cup and spent several years in Italy with Juventus and Lazio is on trial with the Chicago Fire of MLS. Salas has been without a club since walking out on a Chilean club over money in December. At 32, Salas’ best days are behind him, but how many former South American Footballer’s of the Year have actually played in MLS? Salas would be only the second if he signs with the Fire. (Carlos Valderrama was the first.) Besides, Salas was near the top of Serie A in goals for three consecutive seasons (1999-00, 2000-01, 2001-02) another claim few in MLS history can make.
