While the squad has the same nucleus, there will be a new man selecting the team and orchestrating from the technical area on Thursday night in Ronny Deila.

The Norwegian has enjoyed a full preseason evaluating his new squad along with new assistants Mehdi Ballouchy and Nick Cushing and has set his sights on bringing silverware to New York City.

In an interview with The Athletic, Deila said: "I’m coming here first of all to try to win a trophy. Being the first to do that would be unbelievable. That’s why I’m here and that’s why the players are here, as well.”

That all starts on Thursday night at Estadio Alejandro Morera Soto where Ronny will hope to get off to a winning start.
