Coach Kreis: "We Have the Ability to Take Four Players on Loan from Man City"

NYCFC head coach Jason Kreis, in England with director of Director of Football Operations Claudio Reyna, sat down for an interview with Manchester City's "City Today" program, in which he gave some interesting details into the movement of players between the two clubs:

The NYCFC section begins at 0:58.

After a few moments discussing the culture shock of a new time zone and driving on the opposite side of the road, the coach gets to the heart of his English jaunt:
"The club has been terrific with us, in helping us adapt as quickly as possible. We'll have the ability to take four players on loan from the club here, so I'm looking a lot at the younger players in the U-21s and the U-18s at the moment, and also the players that are out on loan.

We have a very big interest in bringing some City players over to join us in New York, and I certainly think that there's the talent there, and the ambition is there as well, so we'll have to get with some of those guys over the next six months to a year and see whether or not that would be something that they would like as well."
That's big news. Obviously the fan focus has been on the Designated Players and what famous foreign names might be brought in to start the club off running, but it's heartening to be reminded that Coach Kreis is focused on the making full use of the Man City resources.

The full interview will be posted later this week, and we'll see what else the coach had to say.
