Around N. Amer­ica

“I have seen some laugh­able things in the press, clearly we are never go­ing to loan one of our play­ers out and we are cer­tainly not go­ing to let them go for the 'chump change' that I have seen in some re­ports. If it's a proper, se­ri­ous of­fer then it's some­thing we would con­sider, but not for the laugh­able fig­ures that I have seen men­tioned in the press.” - At­lanta United pres­i­dent Dar­ren Eales on high­lyrated play­maker Miguel Alm­iron and where his fu­ture with the club lies.

“The more MLS has evolved and grown, not only can we bring a spe­cific type of South Amer­i­can, now we bring a dif­fer­ent di­ver­sity. From more ex­pe­ri­enced to young, dif­fer­ent ar­rays of play­ers that can con­trib­ute to the league. I think the eyes of South Amer­ica have al­ways been in this league, but I think there’s more cred­i­bil­ity. Ev­ery year MLS earns more cred­i­bil­ity in South Amer­ica.” - Port­land Tim­bers head coach Giovanni Savarese sees Ma­jor League Soc­cer as a priority league for South Amer­i­cans as more and more join the league each year.

“Let’s raise a tro­phy. I be­lieve in this club and I be­lieve that we can be cham­pi­ons. This Amer­i­can jour­ney has been very spe­cial for me and my fam­ily. I love be­ing a part of the Chicago Fire and we ap­pre­ci­ate how the city has em­braced us with open arms. I will see you in Chicago next year.” - Bas­tian Sch­we­in­steiger will re­turn to Chicago Fire next sea­son af­ter re-sign­ing with the club for an­other sea­son. He will re­main a des­ig­nated player in 2019.
