De Santis confirms Di Vaio’s interest in Montreal
From Kansas City, Montreal Impact sporting director Nick De Santis held a conference call with members of the media this morning to address statements made by Italian forward Marco Di Vaio from Serie A’s Bologna concerning interest in joining the Impact in MLS.
“The Montreal Impact is very pleased that the club is in consideration for Marco Di Vaio’s next career move,” said De Santis. “We made an offer to him for a year and half, plus two more at a club option. He will come to Montreal at the end of May to visit the club and see the city. There is still work to be done."
De Santis and the rest of the technical staff feel the former Italian international fits the mold for the type of Designated Player the club is looking for.
“He’s a fighter. A forward in MLS has to be able to move, find space and be strong physically and mentally. He is very intelligent in his movements to create space for himself and his teammates.”
