Jesse Marsch interview; MLS playoff insanity; Abby Wambach

Planet Fútbol with Grant Wahl - October 30, 2015 - 1:03:25

In January, the New York Red Bulls were a team in turmoil. Fast forward 10 months, and they're in the driver's seat to host MLS Cup. How did it happen? Red Bulls manager Jesse Marsch joins the Planet Fútbol Podcast for an honest, thoughtful and intriguing interview with Grant Wahl about the past year prior to the Red Bulls playoff opener this weekend against rival D.C. United. Speaking of the MLS playoffs, they've been insane. The four opening-round games provided drama, theatrics, golazos and an unprecedented penalty shootout, and Wahl, Brian Straus and Avi Creditor recap all of it before looking ahead to the conference semifinals. We close with talk about Abby Wambach's career, with the iconic U.S. women's national team forward announcing she will retire at the end of the World Cup victory tour. What made her such a special player? And did she really have a physical altercation with Straus early in her career? (Yes, and it's a hilarious story) == The Planet Futbol Podcast is brought you by the SeatGeek app, available in app stores and at Enter code PLANET in the app to for a $20 rebate off your first purchase.
