Shades Alexi Lalas
Over Wayne Rooney Diss

Earlier this week, Lalas told us he wasn’t too pumped about the MLS team working on a deal with Rooney — because the guy’s essentially a has-been.
“For me, Wayne Rooney doesn’t move the needle,” Lalas said … “It might fill some seats, but not that many seats.”
Olsen tells TMZ Sports … the deal with Rooney isn’t done yet — but he’s already going to bat for the striker … with a shot at Lalas.
FYI, Lalas and Olsen have known each other for years — in fact, they were both founding members of the MLS Players Union back in 2003.
