Is Stephen Ireland 'Retiring' To The MLS?
Yahoo Sports have picked up on some quotes about Michael Ballack.
Why does that affect Villa?
Well, if you gave me a second and stop interrupting I`ll tell you!
Apparently Ballack wants to move to the MLS but the New York Red Bulls are apparently more interested in our very own enigma, Stephen Ireland.
Ballacks agent, Michael Becker told goal.com that his player would love to play in New York but added that NY manager Erik Soler has "already made massive promises to Stephen Ireland in October."
His agent then 'attacks Ireland`... not the country, the player you understand?!
'Why would you go for a no-name player who no one knows, who hasn't started in months, when Michael Ballack is available?'
So... what would you do? Would you sell Ireland or are we just starting to see the glimpses of the quality player who this Club and team could desperately do with?
Let us know in the article comments and also, our new poll asks the very same!
