The Champions League knockout stage began yesterday for both UEFA and CONCACAF. Lots of soccer on today as well in both competitions! Here’s the recap from yesterday’s news:
FC Cincinnati needs a new coach again after Ron Jans resigned yesterday morning. FCC’s press conference was nothing short of terrible in trying to explain/defend everything.
Gio Reyna became the youngest American ever to play in the UEFA Champions League when he subbed on yesterday for Borussia Dortmund against PSG. He also provided the game-winning assist to Erling Håland, who to call on fire would be an understatement.
Claude Makélélé was one of the most indispensable players the world has ever seen, and he was the subject of my Black History Month series over at SSFC.
Bill Hamid joins The Call Up podcast, so that automatically makes it a must listen!
MLS updated its Code of Conduct for the season. Things like the Iron Front logo presumably should be allowed in the stands.
Lionel Messi and Gerard Piqué had a hostile meeting with Barcelona brass after social media from the team’s partners criticized Messi and the players on the team.
That’s it for today!
