Claudio Reyna is going home. It looks as if Reyna will be joining New York fairly soon. If it happens, it will be a good thing for New York and the league. Reyna's best days are behind him but he still possesses star power and the ability to pique fans' interest.
Reyna captained the USMNT for quite a few years. Admittedly, I was never a true Reyna supporter. I felt he was good but I think some people made him out to be a more influential player than he really was. In some ways, I felt justified when he made that horrendous error against Ghana in the World Cup last year. Still, I can't say I'm happy with the way his national team career ended, in a crumpled heap as he cost his team a chance to advance in the World Cup.
With Reyna, New York coach Bruce Arena will find a player willing to do anything for him and mentally and emotionally capable enough to carry the load in New York, and that's a big load. If his body holds up, I think Reyna will be a fine addition to the league.
