Preseason Day Two

Vancouver Whitecaps FC continued preseason preparations today at Burnaby Lake West, and following the session, I had an opportunity to catch up with ‘Caps striker Atiba Harris and midfielder Matt Watson.

Despite being out for nearly 10 months with a knee injury suffered last spring, Harris looked in fine form. We covered a range of topics, including competition at forward this year, how the knee was feeling after the second day of training, and what the motivation was for his new hair style.

Newcomer Watson talked about his move to Vancouver, his start to preseason, and what type of player the fans can expect to see on the pitch. We also chatted about his reunion with head coach Martin Rennie and assistant coach Paul Ritchie, as well as the chance to play in Major League Soccer. Watson also revealed the team he supports in his native England.
