Puyol ponders shock US move

Former Barcelona defender Carles Puyol has admitted he is mulling over making a shock comeback in Major League Soccer.

The 37-year-old retired at the end of last season following a series of knee injuries but, speaking in Shanghai at the XVI Laureus Sports Awards, he commented on the rumours he may move to the United States.

“It could be a very interesting proposition but I also need to take my wife and daughter into consideration. We’ll all decide if the right moment comes along,” he maintained.

“My intention now is to get my knee back to normal. A few months ago I couldn’t even walk down the stairs, although it’s getting better bit by bit.

“However, I’m not ruling anything out. It’s also true I’d like to be a Coach one day.”
