D.C. United investment and stadium update: Will Chang says he would retain stake in MLS club

8

In a piece that has Steven Goff kicking his excitement level above "zzz" for the first time in years (which is significant if you know how optimistic he usually is), the Post's Soccer Insider has a conversation with Will Chang that brings up several interesting pieces of information. Chang plans to hold on to a "significant part" of the team if the expected purchase by Erick Thohir and an unnamed additional partner goes down as everyone expects. Specifically, Chang said "I love this team, I’m not getting out and I will continue to own a significant part of this team." At the same time, Chang said that there is no agreement in place, and that "we’re talking to several parties, I am getting a lot of interest, and that’s where we are. I don’t have anything concrete right now." Not hard to believe that the first place and hottest team in the Eastern Conference with a coach who has built a team from the ground up modeled after his fighting spirit is turning heads among investors. There's some other stuff about Thohir and the mystery investor meeting with the team and Don Garber this week, but I'll let you read it. My reaction is, mostly, that I'm really quite excited and really love Will Chang. As @philneezy put it on Twitter, "Will Chang forever deserves the love and respect from MLS fans throughout the country for sticking with ‪DCU‬ through all of this." Indeed.
