    Mijatovic is currently without a club, having left Spanish second division club Levante in the summer.
    ''I still have offers to answer from Japan and America. I am thinking them over, not hanging up my boots.''

    Hes about 34 and will be good for another couple of years. Ive seen him play many times, both for the Yugoslavian National team and Real Madrid. Hes a very consistant striker who works hard. Hes won a lot of trophies and awards in his career. The story talks about him having offers from America. Is he the striker we've been looking for?

    He did retire this week. He decided not to accept that Quatar offer and officially retired.

    Are you guys daft or something? Instead of jumping down Partizan's throat so fast, READ the article. It's dated Dec. 5 and says that the widely published reports of his retirement are FALSE!!!

    so you guys should "WAKE UP"

    there is 4 or 5 different reports about his retirement,

    also if he went to mls that would be an embarrasing way to end his career

    if he goes to qatar which he rejected he wouldve gotten $2 million
    now why would he go to mls for maybe $200,000

    hes done done

    can't necessarily put a pricetag on quality of life though...maybe he wants the 'american' experience, whatever that means, so maybe he's willing to accept less money to be somewhere he's always wanted to visit or live in the short term...

    maybe he would rather live in the states than some miniscule middle eastern country. i don't think that you are the one making the decisions here, assface.

    why would he live in the states
    the man has been in spain for most of his career
    a much more beautiful country than the us

    why dont you go on a plane and travel a little and youll see what im talking about
    not being a stupid american who spends his entire left without leaving the states
    ass clown

    mls is a joke so dont even start with bs

    While I agree with you that there are beautiful places in Spain and the rest of the world, there are likewise places in the US that are more beautiful than in Europe. No country is "better" than another, as each offers a different selection of things to see. As for MLS being a "joke," this "joke" of a league developed the starting goalkeeper for one of your favorite teams. But, seeing the other teams you support, I'm not surprised you didn't notice.

    Beautiful scenery only goes so far when you have to eat Spanish food every day.

    I like visiting Europe as much as the next guy. I've traveled to Spain and had a wonderful visit. But why is it that there are so many ignorant Europeans whose only retort is to accuse Americans of being stupid people who don't travel? Newsflash to you ....... many of us do in fact travel. You know why? Because we have more money than anyone else in the world TO travel. Please find something else to say, which is sensible, because the Americans don't travel angle is just really too stupid to put into words.

    Congrats spunk breath, you win moronic superpower hater of the month. Time for yer reality colonic.

    California alone rivals the "beauty" of Spain. Don't even have to put the Grand Canyon, Crested Butte, Key West, Mad River, Niagara Falls, Oahu or dozens of other American Beauties in play.

    Just drag yer sleep depravated ass back into the belly of the nearest euro trash bar and master yer daybreak domain to the far away roar of people actually ATTENDING a real game at a proper time of day.

    Actually now that I think about it St. Petersburg, Russia, Riga, Tallin, even Kiev were more fun than Spain.

    Back to the original topic, I don't think MLS (or at least the Metros) should persue him. His best days are past. After he left Real Madrid he joined Fiorentina, and became a major disappointment there. They eventually let him go for nothing (cuz they tried to sell him but nobody was interested). Not the type of player we want to bring to the Metros.

    I dont want him. I say we put a cap of 32 years old on importing foreign players. (Sorry David Beckham, Sorry Sol Cambell)

    I don't want this league to be a place where washed up old superstars can play their retirement soccer anymore.

    I agree with what you're getting at..however if the guy is comming to play then age should be of no factor. If age is a knock then we simply are a weak ten team league since our number one player,2003MVP, is none other then 40 plus Preki.

    The whole age debate could go on forever but I think we can all agree if any player wants to come here and play legitimate first team football and also help nurture our younger players, Magee, etc... then I say welcome aboard.

    Preki earned his place. These guys come in demanding high wages and time and time again don't really produce anything. Let them all go to Quatar for all I care. The oil money is better than whatever MLS has.

    hey thanks to the mls tim howard has been great for manu
    no doubt about it but he does have decent defenders infront of him

    but look at your boys friedel and keller-can you say disapointing this season

    then you got your mls heroes
    clint mathis who got rejected by rangers and leicester city and ruiz also rejected by leicester city

    and those 2 clubs arent the cream of europe either
    so what do you guys have to say about that?

    and about the mls when i see a soccer stadium with football lines over it
    well no need to say anything about that

    It's saddens me to see tomvandam is from New York.
    I sincerely hope he isn't from New York, but is just more Eurotrash passing through, never contributing to the scene, never to be missed.

    They just come here to go to school or make money, take up apartment space, raise the rents by reducing the housing stock, and rank on our domestic league -- as in 'how dare we soil their game' with our crass Yank ways.

    The only good they do is keep some bartenders off the unemployment line, and half-a-dozen pubs open for business. Thanks for that, you can go home now.

    If he is from New York, some tar, feathers and a rail would be in order -- but hardly worth the effort. Better to shun him.

    really? americans don't travel? then why do countries across the world compete for our tourism, jackass. places in central america and europe would go broke without north american "ass clowns" spending their money there on a regular basis.
