Who was your favourite soccer player growing up?
Iker Casillas.

If you weren’t a soccer player, what would you be?
I would be a PR, communications, media guy.

What’s your favourite TV show?
There has to be some drama, some suspense, some action. A car to explode, or something like that. I just watched Bad Blood, which is interesting because it’s based in my hometown, Montreal, and the documentary on Aaron Hernandez. That’s a good little three hours of your life you won’t regret if you watch it.

What’s the website or app that you visit the most?
On my phone, I open the browser, and I have four sites which are probably like Google, Audi, Mercedes and the Whitecaps.

Who would you want to play you in a movie?
I think Matt Damon would be a great one to get the role.

Any nicknames you’ve had through the years?
Max, Maxy, Creeps, Poulet, which means chicken. I have a lot.

What’s the biggest challenge you’ve had to go through?
It would definitely be long term injuries when I was younger. Knock on wood, life is good now, but before when I was 16 to 18, there was a good 18 months of just injury after injury after injury. My knee, MCL and ACL, broke my hand, broke my elbow. That phase was tough mentally.

What are your goals?
I want to have a family. Cristina and I are talking, pretty soon – that would be the ultimate goal outside of football. With football, I want to help bring the country to a bigger stage, which means the Hex and ultimately, a World Cup.

What song would you sing at karaoke?
An easy one! I’m a terrible singer. Something that has some rhythm but is easy to sing. Maybe some Red Hot Chili Peppers.
