Sanchez Worries About MLS Improvement
Los Angeles Times, March 28th, 2007 2:07PM

MOST READ


Mexico coach Hugo Sanchez, who admits to being something of a nationalist, is worried. He´s worried that the recent trend of the United States owning regional power Mexico in the international arena will only going to become tougher to overturn as Los Yanquis get stronger. Major League Soccer is "getting better day by day and year by year," Sanchez says. "Now, with the new policy of bringing big stars, it's going to get better much quicker. That's why I worry."
 
When Sanchez joined the Dallas Burn in the twilight of his career, the former Real Madrid star told management that MLS needed was to bring in three of the world´s best coaches, and one or two of the world´s best players per team, and three or four of the best players to help the league grow. What he didn´t consider was the fact that MLS needed to establish itself as a legitimate business before investors would undertake that kind of risky experiment again, but now with the arrival of Beckham, it seems like the league is headed in that direction again, which Sanchez believes is good for the league. Who knows, after the arrival of more players, maybe next will be referees and coaches? Read the original story...
