5 soccer players who wouldn’t get invited to the White House
September 22, 2016
Hilary Clinton, Donald Trump and…oh crap, there isn’t a third choice! Donald Trump and anything is never a good mix, and politics and football are just two worlds that should never collide.
Don’t get Jose Mourinho in to ease tensions between Palestine and Israel, and equally, don’t ask Barack Obama for advice on whether Seattle Sounders’, Nicolas Lodeiro, is MLS MVP for this season.
Oh, and definitely, under any circumstances, invite any of these soccer players to the White House!
Whether you view the United States international's, erm, style of play as over-the-top aggressive or misunderstood genius, there's not a chance he'd be allowed near the White House - unless he 'accidentally' were to tackle Donald Trump.
Andrea Pirlo doesn't come to the White House; the White House comes to Andrea Pirlo.
Like an awkward fanny scratch, we try to not to acknowledge Rafael Marquez's existence in Major League Soccer.
Nigel de Jong
Thankfully the MLS - and poor Darlington Nagbe - no longer has to put up with the Dutch international's mood swings.
The United States President would not be safe with de Jong within a 100 miles radius of the White House.
Thankfully, the Slovakian striker is nowhere near America, now - you can check out his highlights reel from his time in the US above.
Without doubt, one of the worst players to ever grace the rapidly-growing MLS.
An utter disgrace, and does not deserve to be anywhere near the great building.
