USMNT PLAYERS BACK SAN DIEGO’S MLS EXPANSION BID
US Men’s National Team players have supported San Diego’s bid to establish a new MLS Franchise.
San Diego hosted a friendly match between Serbia and US on Sunday afternoon which drew an attendance of 20,079.
When asked how did they feel about San Diego becoming an MLS city midfielder Sacha Kljestan said “I think it would be a very highly sought-after destination for players. It’s obviously a very nice place to live. The weather can’t be beat; the food is awesome. Sign me up.”
Two players who got their first USMNT caps on Sunday, Jorge Villafaña and Sebastian Lletget both endorsed MLS in San Diego as well.
“This is a great city. I think it would be a great place for an MLS team,” said Villafaña, of Liga MX side Santos Laguna. “We’ll see in the future if they’ll bring it, but I think it would be a great market for an MLS team.
Lletget, who plays just up the road for the LA Galaxy, agreed.
“I think that would be great,” he said. “This is a great state; why not?”
