U.S. soccer president tells CNN more misconduct cases reported

Jorge S. Delgado was released from the hospital Thursday about 10 months after he was diagnosed with testicular cancer, USA Today reported. He said Thursday that his cancer is in remission.

Delgado, who works for MLS, told USA TODAY that he didn’t learn of the testicular cancer diagnosis until six weeks ago. He said he called a friend, who alerted the league. Delgado said he had no symptoms to alert him to cancer and had no concerns from his family or friends.

Delgado, whose wife, Sarah, and two children live in Seattle, became an advocate for cancer patients in the United States after a positive test for cancer found in January of 2013.

“A couple of months later, I was diagnosed with cancer,” Delgado told USA Today. “I went through a lot of chemotherapy over the next year, and when I was told I had a year to live, I was a bit surprised.”

Delgado said he is now cancer-free, but he still has pain from the treatment, the paper reported. He also is dealing with the emotional turmoil of losing two colleagues to cancer in quick succession.

The U.S. Soccer Federation announced Thursday that more cancer cases were reported in 2014, as the organization looks inward to address problems.

“We are doing an assessment with the [U.S.] Centers for Disease Control and Prevention,” U.S. Soccer president Sunil Gulati told CNN. “We will learn from it and apply it to the long-term strategic planning and development of the Federation going forward.”
