It is no secret that Los Angeles Lakers star Steve Nash is a soccer fanatic. He grew up playing it, watching it and even now in his free time trains with clubs and hosts charity tournaments. Heck, he’s even part of the Vancouver Whitecaps ownership group.
So it shouldn’t come as a surprise that the NBA star is going to have a tryout on Tuesday with Inter Milan. The Italian club is in the United States for the Guinness International Champions Club tournament.
Nash told The Associated Press that he’s working his way back to 100 percent physically after enduring an injury-filled year this past season with the Lakers. This is more of stunt than actual tryout, but apparently Nash still has some butterflies ahead of the practice, saying he’ll probably be nervous just sharing the field with Inter Milan.
But he really doesn’t have anything to be nervous about. Nash has got some serious soccer skills:
Don’t worry Steve, you’ll be just fine.
