TweetDeck : Always read Charles Boehm. Predictably good on Turner's rise.

Turner (a fellow NJ kid ✊🏼) played club one summer with my college soccer roommate, my friend couldn't have nicer things to say. I trained with him once too, super kind. Always nice to see these dudes make it big twitter.com/cboehm/status/…

TweetDeck : .Ike Opara's questions to Benny Feilhaber on behalf of BSI: The Podcast on today's presser 😂

1. O/U 2.5 games into your coaching career that you realize that you can still play & make a comeback?
2. Will you invest in real clothes now that you're a member of the technical staff?

TweetDeck : On the press conference as Benny Feilhaber returns to Sporting KC as an assistant coach, co-host of BSI: The Podcast Ike Opara jumps on to ask a question:

Benny: "This isn’t really happening, right?”

Ike: “I’d like to ask my questions, please.”

TweetDeck : Vancouver Whitecaps' Axel Schuster on offer for Otavio:

"I don't want to confirm anything. We want to approach the best possible profile... it's a good tactic not to speak so much."

He alluded to the fact that the offer is still on the table (as I reported Saturday night) twitter.com/tombogert/stat…

TweetDeck : Vancouver Whitecaps CEO & sporting director Axel Schuster on COVID-19 perspecitve:

"This virus is real and people are dying, in our country and in this province. We must remember our problems (Whitecaps soccer- specific questions) aren't the biggest problems in the world."

TweetDeck : The 2019 U-20 FIFA World Cup/MLS pathway. South America:

🇨🇴: Andres Reyes, Andres Perea, Deiber Caicedo, Carlos Teran
🇪🇨: Diego Palacios, Jhon Espinoza, Jose Cifuentes, Alexander Alvarado
🇺🇾: Thomas Chacon, Nicolas Acevedo, Francisco Ginella, Brian Rodriguez
🇦🇷: Ezequiel Barco twitter.com/WhitecapsFC/st…

Twitter Web App : A little bit more context on Whitecaps' offer to FC Porto No. 10 Otavio.

Also saw that Gianluigi Longari reports in addition to AC Milan a number of clubs (Roma, Juve, Napoli and Leicester City) are interested too. Would be quite the coup for #VWFC if it happens

Twitter Web App : Took a while, but noooooow done and official. Whitecaps sign Deiber Caicedo.

Whitecaps send Nashville $75k GAM for his discovery rights

TweetDeck : Javier Rodríguez CLTFC FANTV UD Las Palmas ah, thats weird. in my conversations with people at Chatlotte theres been no talk of a purchase option and they really like Ruiz (obviously, which is why they bought him 18 months before theyll debut in MLS).

from Charlottes announcement:

TweetDeck : A few months back we had Tom Bogert on discuss where Caden Clarks future lies. He is set to move from New York Red Bulls to #RBLeipzig! Listen in for some info on Caden!

  • Start Video

TweetDeck : Interesting player profile. RBNY sign 17 y/o Venezuelan youth international Wikelman Carmona

Also I assume the reason he can join now (unlike Chicago's addition of fellow 17 y/o Jhon Duran, joining in '22) is that Carmona turns 18 at the end of Feb. (Duran turns 18 next Dec.) twitter.com/NewYorkRedBull…

TweetDeck : The terms of a deal to send New York Red Bulls midfielder Caden Clark to RB Leipzig are being finalized, according to sources. The 17-year-old will remain with #RBNY for the 2021 MLS season before moving to Germany.

TweetDeck : I don't think it's a coincidence that Gabriel Heinze arrives in ATL on the same day that Lisandro López is officially announced. Heinze has his proxy in Atlanta.

Heinze and López have similar personalities and they'll lean on each other on and off the pitch. #ATLUTD

iPhone : Source: Vancouver Whitecaps make offer for FC Porto/Brazil youth int’l No. 10 Otavio.
