Report: Guillermo Barros Schelotto Signs with Crew

columbus

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.

    Sorry if I sound like some kind of Euro-snob, but…

    I have to wonder who in Europe was trying to sign this 34-year-old to play on foreign soil for the first time in his career.

    Schelotto is going to turn 34 in May. Juan Pablo Angel will be 32 in October. Becks will be 32 in May.

    I see MLS going in the right direction and I’m definitely going to catch some games this season. But I’m not really excited about another member of the MLS retirement home.

    This should be a shot across the bow to all the eurosnobs that populate this website and all the English and Irish pubs every weekend.
