Also players should be starting in the MLS before they go to europe. That is how you develop players. A strong domestic league that can be a feeder to europe is important. You improve your pool as a whole so dont crap on them because they went to MLS first.
Since Jozy left the MLS for European glory, he's been on 5 clubs, 3 times on loan.
He's scored what, 3 domestic league goals in Europe? And I think the way to go is sign in Europe first. Were seeing with these younger players, as they come up through the u-20's etc, clubs are more willing to be patient with a certain player (I.E- Cherundolo). Sometimes when players get bought/loaned by a club, (Adu, Altidore, Bradley) they get one/two weeks to prove themselves, if they perform poorly, there is always another option and there stuffed on a long bench. Michael Bradley knows that very well. And for the USMNT to have top 5 every year material, it would help having a strong domestic league, but don't be surprised if we turn into a Uruguay/Ghana type country that doesn't have great depth, but are capable of making a run in the WC.
Also, we will see how an Agudelo or Gyau perform in a big league. In the Emirates cup today, the announcer said that Agudelo is getting major looks in Europe.
