The latest AFTN Soccer Show is out for another packed show of Vancouver Whitecaps, Major League Soccer, and Canadian Premier League chat.
Is a MLS lockout looming? We chat about that as things aren’t looking good between the owners and the players, and while we may now have a start date for the new season to get underway, getting to that point still feels filled with a lot of uncertainties and a long way away.
As it all plays out, the Whitecaps have been busy making some signings to their squad. We look at the additions of winger Deibar Caicedo and goalkeeper Evan Newton, and chat to ‘Caps coach Marc Dos Santos and Sporting Director Axel Schuster about the former. Plus we look at the return of Andy Rose and talk with the man himself about coming back to the team and his additional role as U19 assistant coach.
It’s also been a busy week in the CPL with their 2021 U Sports draft. We look at some of the picks and chat with FC Edmonton’s two selections, Whitecaps academy alumni Tommy Gardner and Jackson Farmer. Plus we hear a little bit from their new head coach Alan Koch and we have a special CPL giveaway for one lucky listener.
