The SBI Show is back for the new year, and the first episode of 2022 features an interview with American midfielder Chris Durkin, who discusses his time in Europe and the possibility of a return to MLS.
Episode 347 takes a closer look at the busy winter for Americans Abroad, including the recent transfers of Ricardo Pepi and Daryl Dike, as well as Sergiño Dest’s looming departure from Barcelona.
Host Ives Galarcep also discusses John Brooks status at Wolfsburg, Weston McKennie’s red-hot form for Juventus, and catches up with Durkin to discuss a wide range of topics, including the increased number of Americans making moves to the Belgian league, and Major League Soccer’s changed stance on selling players, which is making it a more enticing option for young players looking to jump to Europe.
The show wraps up talking MLS, including the final head coaching hires, and some of the blockbuster moves made recently, including Toronto FC’s signing of Lorenzo Insigne and Seattle’s snagging of Albert Rusnak.
