Welcome back to another episode of the Max + Vince Podcast. It's another busy week around the LAFC Performance Center. Max and Vince recorded on Tuesday before LAFC took on Austin FC in a pivotal Western Conference matchup. The guys talk a little bit about the Austin match, including injury updates for players like Brian Rodriguez and Eddie Segura. Before that, we touch on the loss to Colorado. It was going to happen sooner or later, and whether it was altitude, fatigue, or something else, this was a dud for the Black & Gold. Max and Vince give their thoughts on the drain of an MLS season, especially when midweek matches start to become a thing. Because we're recording during a busy week and we won't get a chance to talk about Austin until next week, the guys welcome a very special guest. LAFC Director of Football Operations Marco Garcés joins the show. We had so much to cover that we're thinking we need to bring Marco back a few times. But in this episode, we talk to Marco about his background in Liga MX. He shares with us why he jumped at the chance to move to MLS and LAFC in particular. We ask about scouting talent in the Los Angeles area and what he looks for in a player. We also talk about his time as a scout for Sir Alex Ferguson and Manchester United and how scouting for LAFC, Pachuca, and Manchester United is similar in many ways. All that and more on another new episode of the Max + Vince Podcast. Please don't forget to subscribe, rate, review, and share with a friend!
