Poland Coach Urges Zurawski to Move to L.A.

MOST COMMENTED

Poland captain Maciej Zurawski is being urged by national team coach Leo Beenhaker to leave Celtic for the Los Angeles Galaxy. The 31-year-old Hoops striker captained Poland to a successful Euro 2008 qualifying campaign, but has received little playing time at Parkhead so far this season.

"I think if Maciej were to accept a move to America, he'd find it a good level," Beenhaker told Scotland's Evening Times. "MLS is a good, developing league and Galaxy are a good side with some excellent individuals. But what matters most is that he plays football on a regular basis, the level is not really the problem ... compared to sitting on the bench at Celtic, I know what I would choose."

Injury problems at the beginning of the season allowed Scott McDonald to take Zurawski's place in the starting lineup alongside Jan Vennegoor of Hesselink. The Polack seems to have fallen completely out of favor with Celtic manager Gordon Strachan, who may be looking for another striker during the January transfer window.
