MOST COMMENTED

For the first time in seven years, DaMarcus Beasley is off for Christmas, and he is spending it at home in Ft. Wayne, Ind., where he is holding the first Beasley National Soccer School Holiday Camp.

“It’s always good to come back home, obviously to see the family," said Beasley, who is in his first season in Germany with Hannover 96. "But (also) to see the kids and to see soccer really grow in my hometown, I want to see soccer grow as a whole in America, but I want to do my part in my hometown, in my area.”

Beasley says it has been an adjustment in Germany but he is looking forward to playing more in the second half of the Bundesliga season.

“It’s not my first rodeo," he said. "I’ve lived in Holland, England and Scotland. It takes time. Germany is different from any other country I’ve lived in, obviously, and so it will take a little more time. I just try to get stuff outside of soccer, the house, the car, so I feel comfortable. That’s the most important thing. If you feel comfortable at home, you can be comfortable at your job. I’ve gotten that now so hopefully the next five months of the season, I can start playing a lot more.”
