MLS is Weak Sauce

Young American soccer players should STEER CLEAR of MLS — and take their talents to Europe to get World Cup ready … so says former Team USA star Jermaine Jones.
With Team USA soccer in shambles — not even qualifying for the World Cup — we asked Jermaine for answers … and dude kept it real.
“I think that you have to battle with the best and the best play in Europe.”
FYI, Jones currently plays in MLS (LA Galaxy) — but started his career in Europe, where he grew up. Clearly, he thinks the European leagues are better suited to grow talent because they’re more competitive.
The good news … Jones is pumped about Christian Pulisic — says he’s a great player — but there’s no doubt that missing the ’18 World Cup totally sucks for him.
