ESPN soccer announcer Alexi Lalas and U.S. men's national team midfielder Jermaine Jones argued on Twitter after Lalas questioned the Wisdom of Jones turning down the MLS.
U.S. men's national team star Jermaine Jones is not happy with ESPN soccer analyst and former USMNT member Alexi Lalas, who questioned why Jones was so reticent to join the MLS.
Jones then pointed out that perhaps Lalas' soccer insights were not always so sharp.
Thanks @AlexiLalas because your opinion and predictions are always right like saying we "will be kicked out in the club of death"! Hahaha— Jermaine Jones (@Jermainejunior) August 8, 2014

Lalas then retreated to the last bastion of the internet scoundrel, focusing on Jones' use of the term "Club of Death". Especially handy considering the midfielder was born in Germany, and English is his second language.
Of this there is no doubt. RT @rlhaaland Guessing his English is better than your German.— Alexi Lalas (@AlexiLalas) August 8, 2014
Jones is currently in talks to sign with the Chicago Fire of the MLS, but is reportedly asking for a bigger payday then the club is willing to part with.
