Captain America is coming home

Former US captain Claudio Reyna will reunite with former US manager Bruce Arena in New York. This news comes as little shock to anyone who has paid attention to Reyna over the last few months and once news came yesterday that Manchester City had released Reyna from his contract, it was obvious that Arena would soon welcome the midfielder to the home of the Red Bulls.

Still, just because it is obvious, doesn't mean it is not news. Reyna, when healthy, can control a midfield like few others. His ability to force plays will give New York something they were missing last season. Still, Reyna is often injured these days, so who knows how many games he will actually get.

Even with his injuries, it is wonderful to have Reyna playing in the US for the first time since his college days.
