The latest AFTN Soccer Show is out and it’s another packed episode.
A lockout has been averted and the MLS tournament in Orlando seems to be all systems go. Could there yet be a spanner thrown in the works? We chat about that, hear from some angry players around the league about the ins and outs of the negotiations, and MLS commissioner Don Garber shares his take on it all.
There’s still a lot of unanswered questions that exist around thee tournament in terms of safety, post quarantine measures, and more, and we hear from the Whitecaps’ Andy Rose about his personal situation and the tough decision he faces.
Our feature interview this week is with a BC boy riding high out in Montreal, centre back Joel Waterman. We chat with Joel about his career so far, his move to MLS, being thrust in at the deep end right away, and a lot more.
