Eric Wynalda returns to the pitch
It has been seven years since he hung up his cleats, but Wynalda feels ready for this challenge thanks in large part to a fruit drink.
He credits this "comeback" to the fruit drink Monavie, which is based on the South American acai berry.I smell a jersey sponsorship deal.
"My life since I retired was the managing pain from 11 surgeries," said Wynalda. "Ever since I've been drinking that stuff, I haven't taken one Advil.
"I've been playing all weekend for a year and a half now."
With the PDL three levels below MLS, Wynalda should still be able to shine, but I wonder how much juice he will need to drink in order to deal with the pain of playing on high school quality field turf?
So if you live in Southern California and want to see a US soccer legend playing meaningful matches, you now have a good, cheap option.
