Bolivia's president also will double as a professional soccer player next season. President Evo Morales has signed with Sport Boys, a first division club, and plans to play about 20 minutes per match next season.
"He loves football and plays well," Sport Boys' president Mario Cronenbold said. "He'll wear the No. 10 shirt."
"We'll send him a list of matches, and he'll chose which ones to play in," he said.
Apparently, presidents are busy so President Morales won't be able to play in every match. For some reason, he believes that governing a country matters more than 22 guys running around in short shorts and trying to kick a ball through sticks.
President Morales will be paid $214, the minimum salary, which is probably an overpay for a 54-year-old, but he brings a bit of cache so we'll call it a wash.
Don't count on President Barack Obama signing with a MLS team anytime soon. He only plays against robots.
