Oguchi Onyewu Signs for AC Milan

U.S. Men's National Team defender Oguchi Onyewu signed for AC Milan today, putting pen to paper on a three year contract with the storied Serie A side.

Gooch finished out his contract with Belgian champions Standard Liege and signed for Milan on a free transfer.

Everybody in MNT Camp is excited about the move, and the guys were buzzing this morning on the bus. Gooch is going to stop by the hotel later tonight, so we'll be sure to congratulate him then as well...

WAY TO GO GOOCH!

This Is Excellent opportunity for the Gooch! He really has shown to be a strong player who is strong, smart, and has great composer on the ball. The experience he gains while playing for the Italian powerhouse will be crucial to the US MNT going into the World Cup.
I hope he is in the line up when AC Milan play in Atlanta later this month!!!

So proud of the guy. Just makes me treasure the time I met him in a bar in Hartford after the USA vs Latvia match, when I got to tell him how proud I was as a South Carolinian and lifelong Clemson fan -- he was quick to point out that he was from Olney, MD, not South Carolina, but I said that I didn't care, he went to Clemson and I was proud of him -- it made him smile and I was glad to have the occasion to meet him -- he was great to the fans. I wasn't wearing a jersey at the bar -- instead I had a Che Guevara style Bruce Arena t-shirt on -- he told me to lose the shirt and buy a jersey -- I explained that I had multiple jerseys, but we both had a laugh about it

I couldn't think of a better American to play in serie a. A physical player for a physical league.
