Ex-Reading winger Convey to leave San Jose Earthquakes

San Jose Earthquakes winger Bobby Convey will not be returning to the club in 2012.

The 28-year old former Reading man has been at the club since 2009 but will not be back for a fourth season at Buck Shaw Stadium because the latest offer he received simply was not good enough.

"I don't want to leave here with people thinking I wasn't trying or didn't care," he said. "I cared a lot. I really wanted to stay here. It's not going to happen.

"There is no chance I am coming back. The offer that I was given was completely unacceptable.

"I didn't want to be the highest-paid player sitting on the bench," he added. "That's not my personality.

"I worked too hard for that. It doesn't matter I was in the last two All-Star games. It doesn't matter about anything that I've done.

"No one has said a word to me," Convey added further. "They said there is no problem. They just can't pay my salary."
