As the team finetune preparations for the clash, the pair say the excitement is building with the players refreshed and raring to go, and sights firmly set on silverware.
“We’re very excited for the beginning of the season,” Chanot declared. “We’ve been working really hard for six weeks. Everybody’s looking forward to starting again.
“We're well-prepared. It’s going to be a tough game. Nashville are not easy to play against, especially away in front of a full stadium, but we’re ready.
“We work hard, we work well, everybody is behind Nick [Cushing], everybody is happy to be in this Club, and excited to start finally after six weeks, for the first MLS game of the season.
“We work well, we work hard together, and we can’t wait to start the league now.”
