Ivan Gazidis
Gazidis: Kandji block is "nonsense"
August 28, 2008

After SoccerByIves "broke" the story that MLS supposedly blocked RBNY from signing Macoumba Kandji, MetroFanatic contacted MLS Deputy Commissioner Ivan Gazidis for a response. Here's what Mr. Gazidis said:

"I have no idea who the source is for this story but it's absolute nonsense. While I can't comment on this specific player since he's under contract to Atlanta, Red Bull and the League work absolutely in lockstep on player negotiations and the League has not blocked any move for anyone by the Red Bulls.

It's difficult to respond to blog entries where unknown sources are referenced - and of course blogs are driven by hits, not necessarily by the same standards as print media."

MetroFanatic would like to thank Mr. Gazidis for a prompt and intriguing response.
