No football. No problem. The latest AFTN Soccer Show is out and it’s another packed episode.
Our feature interview this week is with current Vancouver Whitecaps assistant coach Phillip Dos Santos. PDS tells us why the Whitecaps were a job he couldn’t say no to and what it’s like working with his brother, chats about his career so far at the likes of Ottawa Fury, San Francisco Deltas, Indy Eleven, and talks about his early days playing in Europe then coaching in Quebec and in the Canadian national team youth set up.
We have the latest news from North America and around the world, although primarily Europe this week, as football’s shutdown continues. There’s been positive virus tests from players training in Germany, France has ended their season, and it’s still hard to fathom exactly what’s happening in Scotland and England. Plus we bring you our latest FK Slutsk update.
We also bring you a chat with FC Cincinnati COO Dennis Carroll who talks about the financial impact the shutdown has on a club like his and reveals what talks MLS have had about getting back into action. Plus we look at some fun community fundraising initiatives from USL sides Forward Madison and South Bend Lions.
Vancouver Whitecaps followed up their successful facemask campaign with a new one to raise money for local foodbanks and we hear from Russell Teibert, Tosaint Ricketts and others about how it came about and why the club’s community involvement is important to them.
Plus Booze and Glory provide this week’s football song in Wavelength, the best band ever to come out of Wales, the Super Furry Animals begin their residency as our artists of the month for May, and we kick off our new music game, Three of a Kind.
