Montreal Impact forward Andrew Wenger is looking at the new 2014 season with hopeful eyes as he wants to leave 2013 in the past. With a new manager in place at Montreal, the 2012 first overall SuperDraft pick wants to impress the new manager and start the season off right.
“I don’t want to look back on last year. It’s a new season, and with a new coach, it’s an opportunity to start things with a clean slate” said Wenger to ImpactMontreal.com.
All signs indicate that Wenger will have the starting spot in Montreal’s attack, at least during the first few games of the season while star striker Marco Di Vaio is serving his three match suspension. It will be up to Wenger to perform during this time in order to keep a hold of that spot.
“It’s an opportunity for me to start the year, but it’s not a three-game season, it’s a 34-game season, so I’m looking at the long term.”
Andrew will have two away matches to FC Dallas and Houston Dynamo plus a third one at home against the Seattle Sounder to impress new manager Frank Klopas. As a third year veteran Wenger now has the experience necessary to know what it takes to shine at the MLS level; Wenger’s moment has arrived.
