Kevin Molino's Comeback and Ambitions
Having scored four goals in his last six games, Kevin Molino is without a doubt aiming sky high to prolong this scoring streak and perform at the highest level in this 2016 MLS campaign. Speaking to Orlando City SC's official website, Molino express his feelings and satisfactions about finding the net again and with more regularity, while he also discussed his sacrifices in order to find his rhythm immediately despite being on the sidelines for so long.
Focus on Cyle Larin and Richie Laryea's Journey from Ontario to Orlando
From Ontario to Orlando, it's been a long road for both Cyle Larin and Richie Laryea as they discuss their journeys in an exclusive video on from the official site of MLS. We are very proud to have two youngsters with huge ambitions and who eventually will help us to make that leap of quality and compete for the top places in the postseason.
Cristian Higuita with AC Milan Offside
As AC Milan are closely observing Orlando City midfielder Cristian Higuita, SB Nation's AC Milan blog, AC Milan Offside, has conducted a Q&A with our own Gavin Ewbank about the Colombian player. Take a look at it and share with your friends who support AC Milan. They should know how talented Higuita is as their club's interest reportedly intensifies with the young defensive mid.
How is Khano Smith Doing with the Orlando Pride?
After a long journey from player to coach, playing and coaching at every level from youth to senior, Khano Smith is now an assistant coach with the Orlando Pride. Together with Tom Sermanni, he is striving to create something great with the Pride. Check out his discussion with the club's official website.
Could Zlatan Ibrahimovic be on his way to the States?
Sky Sports Italia's Alessandro Alciato has tweeted that star Paris Saint-Germain striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic could be leaving Ligue 1 at the end of the season and that the LA Galaxy is one of his likeliest destinations where he would look to further his career.
For those of us who may not have brushed up on our Italian recently, that is Alciato reporting that Zlatan will announce his goodbyes to PSG very soon, and that his most likely destination is Los Angeles. Potentially very bad news for the rest of MLS if LA were able to work out the financial hurdles of such a deal.
That's all for today, folks! Have a nice, soccer-filled weekend yet again!
