Alejandro Bedoya responds to Eric Wynalda's criticism on Twitter


Alejandro Bedoya has seemingly had enough of Eric Wynalda's criticism of his play.

Bedoya, who has been a mainstay for Jurgen Klinsmann's U.S. national team squad, was part of the team that wrapped up top spot in its CONCACAF World Cup qualifying semifinal group with a 4-0 win over Trinidad and Tobago on Tuesday night. However, Bedoya came under fire from the former player, who is now a pundit, for his poor play, something that's not an uncommon thing from Wynalda. 

"I dislike being average and I like being better - it's called honesty - sometimes it stings," Wynalda wrote on his Twitter account when it was pointed out by ESPN's Jeff Carlisle that his dislike of Bedoya was well documented. 

Wynalda had several other posts Tuesday night about Bedoya's play, and Wednesday the midfielder responded with some stinging words of his own. 

"Why @EricWynalda so bitter?" Bedoya said in a tweet Tuesday night that has since been deleted. "B/c of Harkes & that '98 World Cup, I played at better clubs, or not being able to get a job with MLS/USSoccer?"

But the midfielder did not stop there. Bedoya admitted that Tuesday night was not his best showing, but went on to question Wynalda a second time before posting a third stinging tweet directed at the former U.S. star. 

Wynalda took exception to Bedoya's comments and responded in kind. 

Bedoya seemingly put and end to his comments with one final response.
