MLS SuperDraft special: Don Garber interview; What is college soccer's role?
This week's Planet Futbol Podcast comes to you from Baltimore, the site of the 2016 MLS SuperDraft and the NSCAA convention. SI senior writer Grant Wahl and SI.com's Brian Straus, Liviu Bird, and Alex Abnos were all in town for the event, and together they'll give you a sense of what the mood is like at the biggest gathering of soccer people in the country. First, Grant Wahl sits down for a chat with MLS Commissioner Don Garber on the eve of the league's 21st season. In the talk, Garber discusses the importance of the SuperDraft, potential cities for MLS' next round of expansion, and what the league thinks of Dider Drogba's supposed flirtation with a return to Chelsea. Finally, Abnos, Straus, and Bird deliver a rich look at college soccer's importance to the American soccer system, and how Maryland's Sasho Cirovski's radical changes could improve the sport going forward.
