The Frank Lampard episode is getting play in other countries’ sports pages.
This is a huge embarrassment for MLS. If it turns out that Lampard never signed a contract with MLS, but rather Man City, then Don Garber and company looked fans in the face and lied to them.
This is huge.
If true, either The Don goes or fans should shift their support to their nearest North American Soccer League team until or unless Don Garber goes.
This whole episode should be called Lampard-Gate (as in “don’t let the gate hit your arse on the way out”).
As they say in Italy, "Disgraziani."
