He's actually doing very well. He was voted the MVP of the MLS this past year, however, as you probably know, his move to the EPL was blocked, and I think that Bayer Leverkusen(sp?) still own his rights.
Unless the MLS gets a major upgrade in talent soon, or he plays overseas, I'm afraid that his game will stagnate here in the US. He's a big-time player, though.
he signed his contract with Leverkusen when he was 17. He's still a kid, and maybe he feels that the EPL would suit him more, since it's a more finesse league. Bayer's not about to just give him away. Remember, he's not that big. He's 5'8", 150 lbs.
By the time the 2006 WC rolls around, he'll only be 24.
Watch out for the US team in a couple of years. They have a LOT of young talent coming in, as well as the young guys who will be experienced, such as Donovan, Beasley, Bocanegra, Tim Howard, Bobby Convey....etc.
Could scare some teams in Germany in a couple of years
