Crépeau is a fulfilled man
Maxime Crépeau finds himself with the Canadian national team, but he does so mostly as a new member of Los Angeles FC.
The 27-year-old Quebec goaltender was traded from the Vancouver Whitecaps to Los Angeles last week. The Caps received LA’s first 2023 draft pick in addition to a $1 million allocation sum, the highest for a goaltender in MLS history.
The Caps moved him to LAFC at Crépeau’s request, but he said his reasons were personal. However, he is happy with his destination.
“The LAFC stadium is amazing and the fans are fantastic. It’s above all the atmosphere that I can’t wait to relive, but by being in the right locker room this time. »
With the Canadian national team, Crépeau will face Honduras on Thursday, return home to host the United States in Hamilton on Sunday and visit Saldavor early next week.
“The objective is to achieve three victories. Two matches will look alike in a hot and humid climate. In Hamilton, it will be different, but we know what to expect because we experienced it in Edmonton. »
After eight games, Canada sits in first place in this final qualifying phase for the 2022 World Cup. The last three games will be played in March.
