Gooch to AC Milan

Chris Courtney of Letters from Vagabondia is reporting that U.S. center back Oguchi Onyewu has signed a three year deal with Italian powerhouse AC Milan. The U.S. international will be the first American to play in Serie A since Alexi Lalas played for Padova in 1994-1996. The biggest difference is that Onyewu will be playing for a Italian powerhouse at the San Siro, will be playing on a Champions's League team.

Given the age of the AC Milan starting 11 last year, just putting Gooch in the starting 11 will reduce the average age of the team. Gooch will also be playing against some of the top talent in the world and that will only make him better.

Congrats to Gooch.
