Garber Speaks Out on "Camilo Gate"

MLS Commissioner Don Garber recently spoke to Soccerly.com about the Camilo saga - Mike Stobe

We promise that this really will be the last Camilo story. Ever.

I know here at Eighty Six Forever we said months ago that we had "moved on" and closed the books on L'affaire Camilo, but Major League Soccer Commissioner Don Garber recently granted an exclusive interview to Steve Clare from Soccerly.com and the Camilo Sanvezzo saga was just one of the many topics discussed.

While there are no earth-shattering revelations in the interview Garber does clarify a couple of issues, namely that MLS and the Vancouver Whitecaps sought legal advice to confirm that they had a "bulletproof" contract with Camilo and by running off to Mexico the Brazilian breached the terms of that contract.  Garber once again reiterated (as he did in a television interview with TSN's Luke Wileman and Jason de Vos on the opening day of the season) that MLS and the Whitecaps received a transfer fee of $2-million from Querétaro FC for the sale of Camilo to the troubled La Liga MX club.
