Looks like everyone in LA isn’t excited about David Beckham joining the MLS and the Galaxy.

Primadonovan wants back to Europe but he also wants back on his own terms.

“The older I get and the more I play, the more I’m yearning for that highest level I can play at and I think the Premiership would be the best place the play,” he told Sky Sports News.

“If I were to go obviously the language isn’t an issue. There are a lot of Americans there. It would be the easiest place the settle, Germany was difficult.

Wah! Donovan had his chance to play at the highest levels and ran back with his tail between his legs when things got hard. He bitched about playing time even though he was dreadful when he played especially during Champions League. Premiership teams are really on the lookout for players with no heart or commitment.

These days, the number of Americans playing abroad are increasing by the the week and they’re not all going to English-speaking countries. Many are in Germany and Scandinavia as well as other non-English speaking countries. “Phenom” Freddy Adu is about to head off to Benfica in Portugal. Others have fought their way to the top like Jay Demerit who was playing non-league football before working his way up to a starting position with Watford.

If the under-20 World Cup is anything to go by, American soccer definitely has a bright future ahead of it. The players are young, hungry and willing to do what it takes to be the best they can be. Donovan should just gaze with jealousy at Goldenballs and work on putting his crosses into the net (if he ever plays). Leave Europe to the players like Brian McBride, Brad Friedel, Tony Sanneh, Kasey Keller, etc.
