Inside College Soccer joined UMKC forward Michele Drago for a talk about his college career and life in the USA. Making 15 appearances as a true freshman – Michele has a lot to offer an already strong UMKC team – Watch this space!
Hi Michele, Thanks for joining us.
For spring break I’m going to Las Vegas!
Even though I’m Lazio fan I would really have to say Francessco Totti.
Field every time! Yes, In UMKC we have beautiful facilities and I’m happy to play in Kansas City because I feel really good with all the staff and my teammates.
I will go back for summer even if I receive different offers from PDL and NPSL because I really miss my family and I want to enjoy the time with them. I will play different summer tournament in my country.
After my college career I would like to continue to play soccer but I am also looking for a job. I am studying international management and I like to travel, so if I will have the opportunity I will travel the world doing what I like.
I think the soccer in US is growing and the biggest different that I found playing in US is the way to train, in Italy the training are based on technique and tactique, here are more based on run and gym.
We are a good team and we have different really good players, we are looking forward to playing next season in order to reach our goal, the WAC final and go from there.
Definitely, In US I have the opportunity to play soccer, study and work in university. I recommend the college soccer experience to Young players in Italy because in US you can learn English, know others cultures and, in addition, have the opportunity to have a degree playing in NCAA1.
No, I do not see anybody catching Juventus this year in Serie A because they are, actually, the best team in Italy and, for me, they have a chance to do something in the Champions League even if the game with Barcelona is really difficult for them.
