With the season getting closer, the institution is on the starting blocks. Manager Paul McDounough spoke about what has already been accomplished, and what’s left to be done before the historical 2020 MLS debut
The Inter Miami CF manager explained that they were still actively trying to secure not one but two designated players within the next two weeks. That may be possible and the ending of the European winter mercato may boost their signings. It will not be Cavani, that after expressing his blues and desire to leave PSG this winter, saw not only Atletico Madrid but major Premier League clubs target the player. So two DP’s that’s two stars or at least players that have a FIFA 20 gold card! Lot’s of movements to expect on the signing side!
We are confident that those players will be the – so awaited – major ones, and may even be current Internationals, as McDounough added that they shall be fit to play immediately but the club will not use them if they are called in nationals this summer, with the UEFA 2020 EURO or the COPA America. The hope is still to get those leading players as soon as possible, in order to be really competitive.
The current roster, seen in serious training on Inter Miami CF’s Instagram story, is getting to know each other, as automatism and team adaptation will have to be made in a record time, in addition to digesting the implemented tactics from coach Diego Alonso. The players are spending time together on and out of the field, where they started to have regular dinners as well.
More very important insights from McDonough were given on who will have key roles and most likely starting position, and we started to see the spine of the team. He particularly insisted on Luis Robles being the clear choice as number one goal, a very important information. The Manager then went on and called out defender AJ DeLaGarza and midfielder Lee NGuyen , to also have leading and major roles in the team. Having MLS veterans that have given and proven to the League is necessary, but we hope that the team will quickly add at least one or two major players.We are praying every day for this to happen!
