Dolo told ESPN that he's open to a move to the MLS in the summer.

Nope, sorry, boo! Boooo!!!

He's spent his whole career in Hannover. He's the club captain and his nickname is "The Mayor of Hannover" for God's sake!

Look, I'm all for him no matter what he decides, but I think at his age, it's time to retire from the international game (after the WC, assuming he can regain fitness/form), play another season or two while getting your European coaching badges, and maybe even play your last season as a player coach, but STAY IN HANNOVER! He's doing the entire country a favor if he can break through that European [big] club managing barrier.

I expect Bob Bradley to be the first to do that, but after what happened with Egypt, he'll probably come back here for at least a little while. Still got big hopes for Brad Friedel though...

I completely disagree with this. The MLS needs players like Cherundolo to play there at the end of their career. We need recognizable fan favorites to come and play here. The other players can learn so much from him, too. And we need him to spend a season or two in the MLS so he can familiarize himself with it...if we want him coaching for us in the future, the more he knows the MLS and our soccer system (and its shortcoming), the better. There's nothing wrong with him ending his career there, the Hannover fans won't like him any less for it. And he can still become a coach there. They told him there's a place for him on the coaching staff when he wants it. I want him to play in the MLS for a couple years, then head to Hannover as a coach and break the European coaching barrier. I thought Berhalter would be the one but he came up a point short last season and now he's back here (I'm glad though, we need coaches here that have played in Europe).

Bah humbug!

You make good points, and I wouldn't fault him at all to want to follow that course of action. I just think that it does his character credibility a huge favor to retire there...and that would be the difference between him being a fan favorite and a club legend.


A big question for U.S. fans heading into the World Cup is surely on Jozy Altidore and just what is plaguing the young striker at Sunderland.
