A big challenge for Kamal Miller

The indiscipline in the final game will force coach Wilfried Nancy to field a modified starting XI when CF Montreal faces DC United on Sunday. Full back Kamal Miller will have a lot to take on his shoulders.

Since Rudy Camacho was kicked out of Wednesday’s game against Atlanta United and Aljaz Struna will be suspended for stacking up cards, the Canadian player could be moved to the center line.

Even defensive midfielder Victor Wanyama, who has played at this position in the past, collected too many yellows. Miller is the last resort.

“It’s a position where there are more responsibilities. We have a bigger role since we have to help both sides. We must take possession of the ball, the 24-year-old athlete analyzed by videoconference on Friday. Rudy is usually one of those who hit the most balloons. […] I have to understand when to hold the ball and set the pace for the game during the game. « 

Nothing is set in stone yet for Nancy, who could turn to Joel Waterman or newcomer Robert Thorkelsson in central defense.

“The guys work well as I often tell you. The dynamics are good, assured the head coach. Of course, now it’s up to me, along with the staff, to find the right formula that will put the players in the best conditions to face a team that is in great shape at the moment. ”

Heavy loss

This season, Camacho has shown a consistency that was never before suspected. The Frenchman is having his best moments in Montreal and has started for the 17 games of CF Montreal.

His loss to DC United will be heavy, especially since it took place in a controversial game. Ten minutes after scoring, Camacho received a red card for tripping Atlanta forward Josef Martinez in the penalty box.

“I don’t really understand why there was a hit. It wasn’t a violent foul, Miller said. It’s not like Rudy came in from behind and “killed” him. In my opinion, there was not even a « penalty ». I think Martinez slowed down and waited for Rudy to make a gesture instead of shooting the ball. ”

Nevertheless, the Football Club ended the meeting with nine players since Wanyama was also sent off. Although confident about the depth of the group, Miller would see his passage to the center as a great opportunity.

“I think it’s good for me to add that to my arsenal. Hope all goes well if I play there, ”said the Ontarian.
