Former Columbus, Leeds winger Rogers keen on MLS comeback

Robbie Rogers says he is seeking a return to MLS but not with the club that currently holds his rights.

The 25-year old winger, formerly of Columbus Crew and Leeds United, retired from the game in February but is already looking to get back to action after beginning training with MLS champions LA Galaxy.

Chicago Fire own the right of first refusal for Rogers but he has made it clear that he does not want to make Bridgeview's Toyota Park his new home.

"I don't want to go to Chicago," Rogers told ESPN's Soccer Today.

"I think if it comes down to you can only play in Chicago, then I probably won't go back.

"I need to do it somewhere where I'm totally 100 percent comfortable so I would most likely do it closest to my family.

"I'm not closing the doors or saying no to anyone else that I've talked to but ... that would be my priority."
