So how is the knee injury coming along?
Arnaud: It’s starting to get back to 100 %. Hopefully when the season comes back I will be at 100% and ready to go.
Many are hoping the new ownership group and ideas in Kansas City with a new staff can bring some life to this franchise off the field. Give us some signs?
Arnaud: Everything that is going on is positive. Everyone is really excited over the announcing of a new training facility near Arrowhead that will open in June and the push for a new stadium.
Tell us about your pre-season trip to Argentina?
Arnaud: It was very good, good games as we played clubs like San Lorenzo, Boca Jrs., River Plate, and Nuevo Chicago (former club of Christian Gomez of DC United). All the games were tough and all good games for us. What I love is that you turn on the tv and all you see is soccer. I love seeing that, that passion people have for the sport.
How has the adjustment been to a new coach Curt Onalfo?
Arnaud: He has been great and let’s everyone know what is expected. The whole staff (former MLS star Chris Henderson, Kris Keldermann former George Mason assistant with former Crew coach Greg Andrulis) is strong and open to talk to?
*Editor Note: Davey Arnaud played his youth soccer locally in the Houston area and is from Nederland. He left college (West Texas AM) early to sign with Major League Soccer. Arnaud was recently in Houston and joined Glenn Davis and other MLS players like the Houston Dynamo’s Craig Waibel and Stuart Holden and FC Dallas’s Chris Gbandi and Arturo Alvarez for a visit with children at the Texas Children’s Hospital in the Houston Medical Center. Thanks to MLS players for their care and concern!
