How does Roger Espinoza fit into the midfield?

Talking with the SKC veteran about aging, expectations, and red cards.

MLS: Champions League-Independiente at Sporting KC Peter G. Aiken

After signing a new one-year contract, Roger Espinoza is back in preseason training for another ride with Sporting KC. The midfield will look different from last season with new faces & the return of Gadi Kinda. So how will the 36-year-old club legend fit into the mix?

Roger joined Shades of Blue from Arizona for really fun, in-depth conversation as he prepares for the 2023 MLS season.

It was a strange week around here at The Blue Testament. We don’t have much of an update at the moment, but we really appreciate all the support that has come our way and we want everyone to know this won’t stop us! We’ll keep you updated on the next steps. Thanks again for all the love this past week.

Sporting KC made a very MLS trade involving fake money (GAM) and a chair on the bench (international roster spot). How many green cards are we up to these days?

Espinoza says his body is feeling good, although he doesn’t expect to replicate what Tom Brady is doing. The midfield will look quite different from last season with new faces like Radoja & Flores, and the return of Gadi Kinda. How exactly does Espinoza fit into the mix?

During the scrimmage with the Portland Timbers last weekend, Roger & Diego Chara reminisced about their long careers of running into people.

We talked about dipping his toes into coaching, high expectations for his wife Lo’eau LaBonta & the KC Current this year, Cristiano Ronaldo, and much more. Espinoza is always one of our favorites to talk with and we had a great time hanging out with him.
