An Interview With DaMarcus Beasley

Grant sits down in Houston with DaMarcus Beasley, the only U.S. man ever to play in four World Cups, who recently retired from a club career that saw him win 13 trophies in North America and Europe. Beasley talks about his new work as an executive with Matrix Athletic Club and looks back on a rich career that saw him reach the World Cup quarterfinals with the U.S. (in 2002) and the UEFA Champions League semifinals with PSV Eindhoven (in 2005). He also shares his thoughts on the state of American soccer, explains two bits of important wisdom that he took over the years from his former coaches Jürgen Klinsmann and Bob Bradley, and reveals why he's serious about the possibility of going to culinary school.
