Arena Not Talking Up the Possibility of Kaka in LA

MOST COMMENTED

Los Angeles Galaxy coach Bruce Arena remained tight-lipped about the possibility of Kaka joining the club from Real Madrid, where he has struggled to force his way into the first team. LA has been marked as a potential destination for the 30-year-old, especially with the Galaxy needing to replace David Beckham.

Arena said it would be disrespectful to talk about a potential deal. “We can afford whatever (AEG president) Tim Leiweke and (AEG owner) Phil Anschutz say we can afford,” Arena told the Galaxy’s official website. “Those kinds of decisions really go up the ladder and each situation as it comes our way is evaluated.

“We have had literally, over the four years I've been here, discussions over a couple of dozen players and the financial impact that it has on our business. In the case of any player we do that. We don't discuss acquisitions or transfers or anything of players with other teams.  That's ethically wrong. At this point in time I'm not going to have a public opinion of one player over the other unless those players are free agents.”
