Anton Hysen not coming to Major League Soccer, staying in Sweden

pro soccer player Anton Hysen wrote on his blog that he is not coming to the United States to play next year as previously thought, but will stay in Sweden:

The previous week, Hysen had spurred speculation that he'd become the first openly gay active Major League Soccer player when he talked about meetings he had with the Vancouver and Kansas City teams. No such luck.

Now we're left wondering what happened. He was excited about the prospects of coming to North America. Did the teams back out? Did they not want to touch an openly gay player? Or did his Swedish team step up with lots of money? We'll try to find out...
