Nick DeLeon declines T&T call-up.

Nick DeLeon declines T&T call-up.
By Steven Goff (soccer insider).


Nick DeLeon has never been to Trinidad & Tobago, the Caribbean nation where his father is revered and his younger sister has played for the junior national teams.

The D.C. United winger was born and raised near Phoenix, idolized American players and longed to someday represent the United States on a big stage.

So late last week, when the Trinidadian federation unexpectedly invited him to camp ahead of a Feb. 6 friendly against Peru, he declined. For now, his mind is set on someday playing for the U.S. squad.

I grew up here and its always been my dream to play here, DeLeon, 22, told the Insider. It felt pretty good to get invited, to be honest. Its a big honor. But I dont think its the right time.

When the call came, he had a long talk with United Coach Ben Olsen. And on Sunday he spoke with his father, Leroy DeLeon, 64, a former T&T international and Hall of Famer who served with several U.S. indoor and outdoor clubs between 1967 and 83, including the Washington Diplomats.

The real measure of a man's character is what he would do if he knew he would never be found out.

It would be a huge honor to walk in his footsteps, said Nick, the 2012 MLS rookie of the year runner-up. But as his father told him, theres no need to rush right now.

So leroy told his son hold out ...l

I love T&T eh, but we federation dont treat people right.

Nick right to take his chance with the USA, I would advise my son to do the same.

Until we federation start treating people better no foreign born should come to T&T.

Imagine, we Carribean Cup players eh even get paid yet.

This sort of unprofessional shit is embarrassing and to involve a foreign born in this shit is bad.

Again, ah love meh country, but de people down they need to get they act together.

And ah next thing to is when T&T dont need you, they does treat you like a blasted step child.

Look man like Boucaud, Thomson and Birchall would give T&T 1000% more than many locals and they dont even get de respect of a phone call.

They calling de players they cant get or who cant come and ignoring de ones who want to play, real back to front thing.

Look T&T playing a game in a week and they not even training.

Now they hire Leroy in de TTFF to see if he could persuade his son and instead he rest de bullpistle on them, expect to see Leroy get fired soon...   :rotfl:

As much as I support the soca warriors... you cah blame the fella... he grew up in the states, his dreams are different. I'm surprised USA didnt invite him to the camp. Never to know, we may still get the opportunity one day to steal him away.

He has a better chance with T&T than USA.

Look at how Robbie Findley is disgarded now, even Nottingham Forest let him go last week.

Not surprised: The TTFF in shambles, and he is probably due for a call-up from the U.S. if he keeps progreessing.  I'd take a wait-and-see approach too.

All we did was remind the US of his situation and now they'll probably cap him just to cap him.
