Leon: Don’t worry; I will be back…

Trinidad and Tobago and DIRECTV W Connection midfielder Clyde Leon has asked the public for space to get his career back on track after his temporary absence from the game was raised by a Trinidad and Tobago Football Federation (TTFF) official during today’s TV6 Morning Show.

At present, the talented 29-year-old midfielder, who has 46 international senior caps, is correcting a non-life threatening ailment in the United States and he hopes to return to the local game soon. His treatment is not being funded by Connection or the TTFF.

“I don’t want my business out on the road,” Leon told Wired868. “People are ringing off my phone and asking if I’m dying or something. I am seeing about myself and I just want my space to do that.

“I will talk when I’m ready.”

Leon is a talented, versatile player who is arguably at his best as a box-to-box midfielder although he generally featured as a midfield anchor for the “Soca Warriors.”

Last season, Leon provided Connection’s most memorable moment in the 2012 CONCACAF Champions League when he thumped home a stunning free kick to secure a 1-1 draw for the “Savonetta Boys” against Mexican powerhouse team, Chivas de la Guadelajara.

He also took over the captain’s armband at Connection, earlier this year, after national goalkeeper Jan-Michael Williams moved to St Ann’s Rangers.

Leon last represented Trinidad and Tobago in the 2012 Caribbean Cup semi-final round in Tobago.
