They didn't end in good terms

It looks like the relationship between the Chicago Cubs and the former slugger Sammy Sosa it's not in the best moment right now, but the Dominican is willing to make a move in order to make things better with his former team.

Back in January, Cubs' owner Tom Ricketts said that if the Dominican wanted to take part in events as a member of the Chicago organization or even being related in some way with the Cubs, Sosa will have to admit his steroid use.

 

David Kaplan from NBC Sports Chicago spoke with Sammy Sosa and the former slugger made clear that his intentions are not looking for a job at the Cubs' organization:

I was playing for a company many years ago, it was the Tribune Company, so after I retire I formed my own company, so I'm not looking for a job. When I call somebody the first thing that I say is, 'I'm not looking for a job. Just called you to say hello.' So I have my own company, I'm comfortable

 

Also, Sosa was sincere about his past as a former Cubs player and what went wrong with their relationship:

The ownership they have to understand that I’m a humble man, I’m not a man to have ego, when I was playing I was a little bit because I was focused on what I was trying to do. If I made a mistake, I don’t have to say that but if I made a mistake, I didn't want to offend any body I don’t have a problem with that, I’m sorry because you know, I was in my zone. If one day I come back to Chicago, I'd come back for the fans. I owe those people something
