Onyewu making up to Milan for lost timeMILAN - AC Milan defender Oguchi Onyewu has bucked the trend and decided to play for free in two years’ time.
The center back, in the U.S. preliminary squad for the World Cup, missed almost all of Milan’s season because of a knee injury but is now literally paying the club back for standing by him.
“Onyewu asked for, and received, a one-year contract extension from Milan,” Milan, third in Serie A this term, said in a statement. “During this extra year ... [he] has asked not to receive any kind of salary.”
The 28-year-old is in the preliminary squad for the June 11-July 11 tournament in South Africa despite not featuring for Milan in the Serie A season. Reuters
