"“But we considered the historical significance of the first NYCFC-Orlando City match, the traveling fans of both clubs, and the world-class stars involved. Giving that event prominence just seemed the right move.”
Might be a big deal down at the House of Mouse but really all people on here will care about is it being the first NYCFC match (assuming that is the case it is first at the Carolina tournament) with opponent being irrelevant. Let them take digs on twitter it just emphasises the gulf in class between ownership and executives. Of course Kaka does top even Villa and Lampard for name value (not a slight on latter 2) so credit to that even if he might not have looked twice at them without a fellow Brazilian involved.
