When players are are approaching the end of their career, the thought of retirement is inevitable. Players have moved to less demanding league to try and get a few more years of their playing career. MLS football, A League and the Middle East are among the options that top footballers have explored in the last couple of years.
The A League has welcomed some special talent around the world. You’ll probably remember Juventus legend Alessandro Del Piero’s brief time in Sydney. There are host of other names that you’ll have probably forgotten about.
Inter Milan drew at home to Cagliari to further jeopardize their chase for the Scuddetti but the Neazzuri fans still happened to find a way to be in the news for the most negative of reasons.
They chanted their frustration of the afternoon on Zlatan Ibrahimovic making one wonder how uncouth they will come prepared with their mouth on the day AC actually plays Inter before the end of the season.
Atlanta United manager Frank de Boer has apologized for comments that he made in a recent interview regarding gender equity in football.

Dominique Badji hasn’t enjoyed a great time since he has landed at FC Dallas as he damaged his hammy pretty early in his stint and then when he made a comeback after recovering, that same injury resurfaced again and ruled him out of action for some more time, just adding to the frustration of the Senegal international.
But he is back on the pitch now, fit and fine, and even found the back of the net in the previous game Dallas played which although they lost as a team by the margin of two goals to one, but Badji’s form was certainly a positive sign for them as he looked agile and showed great intensity.
