Will they get back to their best?

Sporting Kansas City has just seven games so far, but the club's urgency to get better results and improve in the MLS standings is starting to become an issue.

"We have to get back to the best version of us."
"That's how it's supposed to be, it's competitive. It's supposed to be an environment where you want to win, sometimes at all costs. If you don't have that mentality, it's hard. It's hard to be successful, it's hard to be a champion," admitted sporting director Peter Vermes later this week.

2:44 PMa month ago

Seeking to meet objectives

Sporting's performance after seven games doesn't mean this team can't meet its goals, as many teams have started slow and still made the MLS Cup playoffs.

"Sometimes it bothers me that there are teams that don't do anything until game 20 and then end up winning MLS Cup," said Sporting veteran Roger Espinoza. "That's just the way the league is."

Uncertainty over franchise player

After Diego Rossi's departure to Turkish soccer, he would free up a franchise player position at LAFC, so they could look to fill it, although the decision on the future of Carlos Vela, who in case of not continuing in the 'Black & Gold' team would leave a second Franchise Player position, is also awaited.

Watch out for this Kansas player

Dániel Sallói, Hungarian player, plays as a forward and winger, last season he scored 16 goals in 30 games being the top scorer in the club, this season he has not achieved much, in 5 games he has only scored once, so he could take advantage of Alan Pulido's absence to strengthen the forward line.

1:44 PMa month ago

Vela's possible exit?

Mexican Carlos Vela is considering leaving LAFC for Europe, because if Javier Aguirre's Mallorca manages to maintain the category in Spain, Aguirre will seek to improve the attack, so he would try to convince the striker of the MLS, but the salary of the attacker is around $ 6 million a year, so he would ask for more.
