    That’s because I actually heard on ESPN radio that he was having the equivalent of Tommy John.

    I’m convinced Zlatan is the best player to ever play in [the] MLS, without joking.

    I’m also convinced the NFL mafia currently running MLS is attempting to reinvent the wheel that is professional league soccer/futbol, and all while corrupting USSF for its own gain at the expense of the MNT.

    Not all elbow surgeries are of the Tommy John (UCL reconstruction) variety. Not sure what your point is here.

    This guy Zlatan sounds like soccer’s equivalent of Terrell Owens, the guy we depend on to keep the planet spinning. For all I care, he can be named the best ever IF he agrees to change his last name to something we can pronounce.

    In baseball they call it Tommy John surgery. In football, it’s just call elbow surgery.
