Carlos Ruiz has returned in Major League Soccer, and there were plenty of teams who wanted him back.
Ruiz revealed that and a whole lot more when he joined the guys on MLSsoccer.com’s ExtraTime Radio on Thursday, and explained why he chose D.C. United over a number of other clubs who were courting him.
“The truth is, I really want to win another MLS Cup,” Ruiz said. “And the only team I can see to make that possible is D.C. United. They made the playoffs and made a couple mistakes against Houston, but I’m pretty sure in that game, if D.C. had won that game, for sure D.C. would have had a lot chances against the LA Galaxy in the championship.”
Listen to Ruiz talk about his exit from Philadelphia, his reputation among MLS players and what he thinks of the US national team in the latest episode (13:17 – 30:17), and don’t miss an interview with New England Revolution top draft pick Andrew Farrell (36:35 – 45:11).
