It's an interesting peak into the psyche of a professional footballer and may help explain the recent report that one in four professional soccer players experience significant depression and anxiety.

The part that caught my eye, however, was this:

Though content with life in Pennsylvania, Nogueira did not rule out another change of direction, perhaps even in the coming weeks.

"The USA is the life I wanted to try. It won't last a thousand years. Perhaps in two or three months I'll say that I'm coming back. I don't want to look too far ahead. I'm enjoying myself. Perhaps I'll go to an exotic league, perhaps I'll retire...But now, I have made the choice of liberty."

Let's appreciate and enjoy his time with the Philadelphia Union while it lasts. He is a joy to watch and I hope he finds the peace and freedom he is looking for both on and off the pitch.
