NYCFC the season begins, a new era
Here we are, MLS 2019 is about to start. New York City FC will debut Saturday in Orlando. New York then, will return immediately to Florida after, just at the Orlando City Stadium, the Torrent team had played two preseason games, one against Orlando and the other against Minnesota.
A game not easy for New York City that was defeated just from Orlando City last February 16. It was a preseason game, but on Saturday it will surely be another match. It will also be the first game of New York City FC without David Villa. There is a lot of curiosity about the Domenec Torrent team, about how the Blues will react to the absence of their historic captain.
A new era opens for New York. No more Villa, no more names of great players. The club has decided to focus on young players and in attack relies on Alexandru Mitrita. Mitrita is a young but very talented player. It will be his job not to regret David Villa, even if his characteristics are very different from those of the Spanish went to Vissel Kobe.
Different players, but Mitrita has already shown good things in the preseason. Two games played and two very similar goals scored. It is clear that what we saw during the preseason does not allow us to give a final judgment on Mitrita. But what little he did let New York City FC and its fans hope.
In addition to Mitrita, there are other great players like Jesus Medina, Maxi Moralez and Tajouri-Shradi. Players who will be very useful during the season, but New York City FC focuses on Mitrita, he will not have to regret David Villa.
