Beasley Looking For a Return To MLS

DaMarcus Beasley has been heavily linked with a return to the MLS in the last few months. The player has not quashed those rumours by suggesting that he is looking to leave Liga MX outfit Puebla in the summer. Beasley has been playing for the Liga MX outfit Puebla since 2011. However, he has been heavily linked with a return to MLS. The player that he will be needed to play in MLS in order to sustain his place in the World Cup 2014 squad. Beasley has been named in the provisional squad by manager Jurgen Klinsmann and it is heavily expected that he will be part of the final squad as well.

Beasley has been out of the national team picture until the start of 2013. This has been because of succession of injuries and competition for places. Since the return to the national team for the match against Costa Rica, he has not looked back. He has featured in seven World Cup qualifiers and was also part of the triumphant Gold cup run that the team had under Klinsmann. Being a veteran of the last three major world cups, it is highly likely that Klinsmann will take him to the World Cup 2014. His experience could prove vital, as they look to reach the knockout stages.

“I have not spoken to any MLS team, I don’t know where that’s coming from. It is true that I’m looking to leave Puebla, I will say that, but as far as MLS, as far as any other country, any other team, I have not been in contact with anyone. My objective is to make this team. I’m not worried about what my future is right now with my club situation. My first job is to defend. My first job is not to score goals, even though I was a midfielder most of my career,” said Beasley.
