Podcast: Herculez Gomez interview; Finding Lyttleton an MLS team

Thursday March 10th, 2016

You'll be hard-pressed to find a U.S. soccer player more experienced in the goings on in Liga MX and MLS and as capable of articulating them sensibly as Herculez Gomez, and he joins the latest episode of the Planet Fútbol Podcast.

In between clubs (a potential move is in the works, he says) after being released by Toronto FC, Gomez talks about the CONCACAF Champions League gap between the two leagues, the future of Mexican-American players and the status of the U.S. men's national team with SI's Grant Wahl.

Elsewhere, the Champions League quarterfinals are half set, with PSG ousting Chelsea in London and making a statement as a true contender to lift the trophy in Milan come May. What is behind the club's success? SI's Ben Lyttleton and Brian Straus discuss Zlatan & Co. and the rest of the remaining field.

Finally, after getting caught up in the MLS opening day bonanza, Lyttleton, who is based in England, needs an MLS team to adopt as his own. After giving us the criteria for how he'd typically choose a club, we narrow down the options for him and put the choice in his hands.
