Andreu Fontàs on Shades of Blue

S4:E17 - ‘Fonty’ talks about his early struggles with Sporting KC & says he’s having fun on the field again.

MLS: Vancouver Whitecaps FC at Sporting Kansas City William Purnell-USA TODAY Sports

The only Sporting KC player to be on the field for every minute of the season so far, Andreu Fontas, was on Shades of Blue this week. The Catalan centerback has faced quite a few struggles since arriving in Kansas City, including a serious Achilles injury. But now the world is restarting after Covid and Fontas finds himself at the top of Peter Vermes’ defensive depth chart. He shared how difficult that time was for him & family, but says he’s now having fun on the field again. You can hear in his voice just how happy he is to be healthy & playing.

We think you’ll enjoy getting to know him! ‘Fonty’ is a wonderful guy, great family man, and loves him some KC BBQ.
