Despite the obstacles it faced at the beginning of the season, Montreal FC is currently ranked fourth in the East, only three points behind its rival Orlando next Saturday at Saputo Stadium.

When asked about the possibility of Montreal getting a new player, he left the door open, but still hinted that the roster should not change in the coming days.
It’s not that it wasn’t planned. Chances are, but it usually won’t happen. Like I said during the previous Saturday game, there are many players left out of the 20 after injuries came back. There is already an in-fighting to be part of the group, so it will be coming and adding a playerHe said.
He also ruled out the possibility of the arrival of a certain player with experience, citing in particular the club’s budget.

On peut prendre un joueur, mais de cette valeur-là”,”text”:”Ce que je peux vous dire aussi, c’est que pour l’argent disponible, on parle de plus ou moins 400000$.

So, it’s not the money to say, for example, that we’re going to get Drogba. We can take a player, but with that valueIt is to explain.
I, therefore, would still rather step aside and see what happens in July. If there really is a departure or what, we will probably have more possibilities to see if we are going to look for an important player. So by July it will depend on what happens.
As for the international performances that can receive key players in the team such as the American Djordje Mihajlovic or even the Canadian Kamal Miller, the MLS player of the week because he remarkably prepared the team’s two goals last Saturday against Atlanta, Olivier Renard did. You don’t want to advance.
There are calls. When a player performs well, he or she attracts attention. […] In football there is supply, demand and desire for the player. It always has weight when there are proposals. It’s important to know what the player wants to do as well.
When asked about the idea of making Mihajlovic a specific player, he replied that it was still too early at the moment.
To make him a specific player… he plays as a specific player. That wouldn’t help me with the contract, he said with a laugh. But there are still years behind the paper he signed, and it’s too early to look into that. We are very happy to have him with other players as well.
The sports director joked that his French had improved a lot. He does very good things. It also surprises me in some ways. I hope to continue.
Regarding his contract as sporting director, Olivier Renard indicated that no discussion with management had taken place.

I will not do that now. The situation is clear. I feel good here. I try to do the best with the team, with staff. On the day the club will want to sit with me, I think they will ask me. There is no problem in this aspect for me.
Kamal Miller, MLS Player of the Week
Kemal Miller received the MLS Player of the Year award on Saturday for his performance.
The defender excelled with a goal and assist in Montreal’s 2-1 win over Atlanta. He was the first to get the score sheet, heading a free kick from Mihajlovic and heading into the opponent’s net.
He then stunned by attaching hooks to the wing to send the ball to Joaquin Torres, the home team’s second goal scorer.
The MLS Player of the Week is chosen by popular vote (25%) and media representatives (75%).
Miller is also among the eleven types of week in the MLS. His colleague Mihajlovic found himself on the bench.
Stay focused on the goal until the end
What about the rest of the season for Montreal? According to Olivier Renard, even if the results are currently positive, nothing is certain.
Last year, we were practically the same record at this stage and in the end, we lost little points here and there and didn’t qualify for the playoffs. It was very disappointing on our part and especially on my part. As long as there are games to play and points to take, we have to keep our focus and not be complacentsaid the athletic director.
He still believes that a return to normal after two uncertain years due to the COVID-19 pandemic would be a good thing for the Montreal team. Playing in front of a stadium packed with fans in Montreal has become almost an exception.
For starters, CF will attempt to defeat Orlando on Saturday afternoon, in order to join Team Florida in the eastern standings.
