Jeff Cunningham became the all-time, MLS leading goalscorer in a Crew jersey, now with that record in the rearview is Jeffro headed to Guatemala?
According to Univision, all-time MLS goalscorer and Crew legend Jeff Cunningham isn't putting up his boots yet and is instead headed to Communicaciones in Guatemala.
The 35-year-old Cunningham is one of four new players the Guatemalan club is attempting to sign to replace Uruguayan goalscorer Carlos Ramirez.
That's if Major League Soccer and the Crew accept the move. The article says that the Columbus Crew still hold Cunningham's rights; apparently because no other MLS team picked up Cunningham, who appears to be on his last legs, in the re-entry draft.
More than likely Communicaciones offer is going to be accepted or denied by Major League Soccer, not the Crew, and more than likely accepted since there isn't a lot of MLS teams looking for Cunningham's services at the moment.
Cunningham had a less than remarkable overall season with the Crew in 2011, but Communicaciones appears to be excited about reviving the MLS all-time leading goalscorer's career again:
"Communicaciones submitted a bid, now we just hope that they say yes, so we can send the airline tickets."There's worse moves out there than signing any leagues, all-time leading goalscorer. Perhaps Communicaciones is looking for Cunningham to show up out of nowhere again like he did for F.C. Dallas a few years back.
Good luck to Cunningham as he looks to open a new chapter in Guatemala.
UPDATE: According to Soccer 365, Israeli reports have Columbus Crew free agent Jeff Cunningham in discussions with Hapoel Petah Tikva...
If I was Jeff I would choose Israel, prettier women and a much nicer place to vacation to. :-)
