I renember Douville interviewing Nesta who said that he's talking about the MLS to his friends in Italy and that the salaries are very good here. I said to mysel there is no way Nesta is being actually paid only 250k if he finds the salaries to be good here. He could easily make a lot more in europe.
I remember that interview too. I don't think his salary is that low; his "cap hit" is that low because I think they used allocation money to lower it. I think his salary is probably double that and I'm sure he's getting some sponsorship somewhere.
In the MLS, you can never tell how allocation money is used or how much of it exists. It's a mystery!
Nesta's low cap hit will certainly come in question.
Doesn't mean IMFC did something wrong, Even if he bring lots of players he is not part of the team.
As for the salary of the players like in any sports with a salary cap clubs are creative and are exploiting the grey areas its to be expected.
The rules are there and you need to make to best of them without breaking them.
But doing financial fraud and stealing money is not at all the same as trying to make the cap hit of a player lower by getting him publicity contract, put a part of is salary as a player/coach or something like that.
Lets not jump to conclusion like in the Di Vaio Case where there was nothing but false unfounded assumptions.
