Chad Ochocinco has finished half of his four-day tryout with the MLS’ Sporting Kansas City, and the reviews of Ochocinco’s performance have been mixed at best.
Including Ocho’s self-examination.
“I wish you all can see the skill it takes to play FUTBOL,even with my speed these guys still make me look like s–t on the pitch #seriously,” Ochocino wrote on Twitter on Thursday. (Those dashes were ours, not his.)
Ochocinco was noticeably tired at the end of his first day and said he “ate the humble pie” during his tryout. The Kansas City Star said Ochocinco struggled to keep possession of the ball during 11-on-11 drills.
Still, the Bengals receiver seems to be having fun. He’s taking the entire team out to dinner Thursday night and says he’s living out a childhood dream. He also thinks his soccer tryout will benefit him on the football field.
“Superb day on the pitch, I’m gonna be in phenomenal shape once football rolls back around,my feet were awesome b4 they gone b like WTF now!!!” he wrote.
The only catch: The tryout ends in two days. It seems rather unlikely Ochocinco will be asked to stick around after that.
“The only thing I’m probably good at,” Ochocinco said, “is being fast as hell.”
