Boy that didn’t last long. As the financial issues continue to mount in St. Louis for Jeff Cooper’s club some players are already leaving the club including longtime MLS veteran Steve Ralston. Reports this morning say Ralston is now headed back to MLS to play with the New England Revolution once again.

“It seems like just a long vacation that I had,” Ralston told Kyle McCarthy.

“Obviously, things didn’t work out in St. Louis how a lot of people had planned (they would work out). I had an opportunity to come back here and felt like it was probably the right thing to do.”

“I think it’s a win-win situation for both sides,” Ralston said. “It clears up some money for them to help keep it afloat. For me, I’m like every player. I want to play at the highest level and I had a great opportunity to come back here.”

Ralston will have a little more time to get back into the swing of things as the league is on a couple week layoff for the World Cup. Good thing too since he is still recovering from an ACL injury from last year.

You hate to see a club have that sort of issues but at the same time I love seeing Ralston back where he belongs, in MLS with New England.
