Houston Dynamo striker Brian Ching has had a storied MLS career and is one of the more intriguing names available in this afternoon's MLS Expansion Draft. If the Montreal Impact select him, though, it could create quite the situation.
The 33-year-old Ching told the Houston Chronicle that he'd retire if picked by Montreal, stating his wish to remain in Houston with the franchise he's played for since 2003 and play in the new stadium that is set to open next season.
"I feel like my home is here now," Ching said to the Chronicle. "This is where I want to be — with the Dynamo. I would want to play in the new stadium, and if I can't, it would hurt a lot. But if (the Impact) pick me, I'll be at the new stadium as part of the front office, not as a player."
The Impact could always select Ching, call his bluff and either hope he plays or hold him ransom for trade in an attempt to secure allocation money; however, they would also run the risk that he stays true to his word and hangs up his cleats.
