If you’re an MLS player at home with time to kill during the 30-day suspension from COVID-19, what exactly are you up to? It turns their activities are awfully similar to us regular folks.
On Twitter, FC Dallas right back Reggie Cannon shared a video he recently discovered from his middle-school days. He’s seen doing a Michael Jackson dancing impression to "Smooth Criminal,” complete with a moonwalk, glove and all-white suit.
Maybe Cannon will break out the MJ-inspired celebration after his next goal. In 65 MLS games spanning the regular season and playoffs, Cannon has three goals and five assists.
Cannon, 21, signed a four-year contract extension in early March, keeping the Homegrown Player in Dallas for years to come. He also has 11 caps for the US men’s national team and has seen his role grow under head coach Gregg Berhalter.
