MIAMI - U.S. national soccer player Alejandro Bedoya is a Miami Heat fan.

Bedoya said on Twitter Friday that he did not mind that Sports Illustrated cancelled an interview with him, because "some guy just made a decision."

"Thanks for the great 4 years," Bedoya said.

The South Floridian of Colombian descent is the U.S. team's number 11.

Bedoya returned to South Florida from Brazil after the U.S. was eliminated from the FIFA World Cup. The U.S. lost to Belgium 2-1 on July 1st.

Bedoya stopped by the Miami Dolphins camp in Davie July 8th.  He was in New York City to meet with reporters Friday.
