Episode 187 - MLS, player development and internet with Jimmy Conrad.

This is a bonus episode where Jorge had the opportunity to chat with former MLS defender Jimmy Conrad. Jimmy played in the league for 13 years mostly with the San Jose Earthquakes and with the Kansas City Wizards. Jimmy was named to the MLS Best XI four times and was an All-Star in 2005. 

He was also a member for the US Men’s National Team and played in the 2006 World Cup in Germany.

After his retirement in 2011, Jimmy started a new career in media joining Kick TV before starting his own YouTube channel where he now produces videos that cover soccer from all around the world with a fresh a unique twist. If you haven’t checked it out, I seriously encourage you to do so as you will find his stuff entertaining and informative. Her's the link to his YouTube channel or you can simply search Jimmy Conrad on YouTube and should be able to find it.

In our chat we covered topics like the recent Mexico versus USA match, the current status of MLS and youth player development in North America. So, without further ado, here is my conversation with Jimmy Conrad!
