The new home of the US Men’s National Team will not be a super stadium, but a stadium with a few other similarities, according to former Manchester United boss David Moyes.
Antioch City will host the MLS U-23s in the first leg of their second-leg tie on Friday (AEDT).
Moyes, who is currently coaching the US men’s national team, was at a press conference on Tuesday to discuss his side’s bid for the third-place finish in the U-20 World Cup.
“I think we’re going to win the first game and then we’ll get a good feeling,” Moyes said.
“We know it’s going to be a good team, and we’re looking forward to that first game.”
It’s going be an important game for us and for the players and we want to get a feel for how we’re playing in that second game.
But it’s not going to play like a ‘big stadium’.
“It’ll be a very compact, comfortable stadium, with good facilities, good technology, good facilities for training.”
And then it will be a game where you can see that the players are taking a lot of pride in their job, they’re playing hard and getting results.
“Moyys said he was impressed by the “good work” the club had done with its training facilities, and he suggested the new venue would “not be the biggest or the best in the country”.”
But it is not going be a huge stadium, not in the same league as (Manchester) United,” Moyys said.
Antonio Conte is in charge at the Italian club and is keen to ensure the club remains at the top of Serie A.”
The club will always be a top club in Italy,” Conte said on Tuesday.”
They’ll always be one of the big teams.
“Antioch will always have a good history in Italy and will always compete with the big clubs.”
Antioch and Manchester City have played each other twice before this season, with the first coming in November when City won 1-0 at home.
“This is a new team and I’m very excited to get the start,” said City midfielder James Perch.
“As we all know, we’ve played each others and we’ll see who is the better team.”
Antonios Pereira, another City midfielder, said he wanted to keep in mind the “big teams” that are coming to the city.
“You need to focus on the big leagues,” Pereira said.
