While spending his time off from the disgruntled Glasgow Rangers club, Carlos Bocanegra found himself in Kansas City this past weekend to participate in the MLB Celebrity Softball Game on Monday, part of the MLB All Star festivities.
The US International also took in the Sporting KC match on Saturday, where he spoke to Sporting KC TV about his situation with the Rangers, along with the possibility of returning to MLS.
“I’ve got to explore my options,” said the 33-year-old American. “I need to speak with the coach, as well. We kept missing each other. It wouldn’t be fair to speak out of turn if I haven’t spoken to him yet.”
He added: ”I would never rule this out, I like the league. I started here. I think it’s a good league — stadiums like this (Kansas City) and New York. It’s awesome how much it’s grown. It’s not a second-tier league by any stretch of the imagination anymore.”
One MLS club identified with an interest in the US International defender are the New England Revolution, who still have another DP spot available on their roster.
Revolution manager Jay Heaps has said that Bocanegra is “one of a number of players we’d like to come back.”
The Revolution have already solidified the striker and midfield positions, and the addition of Bocanegra could bolster their backline and solidify the club as a legitimate threat in the Eastern Conference.
