Allen Iverson might have a job coming for him after all.
A Major Indoor Soccer League is offering the former Sixer $20,000 per game and a $5,000 bonus for every goal scored if he switches to soccer, according to the indoor soccer team’s press release.
The Rochester Lancers announced their desire for the man, that is a bit short for a basketball player (standing at 6-feet) but just right for a soccer player, in a press release Saturday.
“Allen Iverson is one of the premier athletes of our time,” Lancers vice president Rich Randall said in the press release. “With his athleticism and competitive hunger, I think he can be a great fit with our team and fans as we make an important playoff push, while also driving interest to an exciting, growing sport.”
The indoor soccer team added a bit more incentive by saying they would host Iverson’s family and friends anytime they come to visit.
So there you have it: this soccer league is a big old attention slore. Why would anyone pay to see a 35-year-old man run around and play soccer when he can barely get around the basketball court? And for $20,000 a game? Sit down somewhere!
