With Piatti’s arrival finally confirmed for Wednesday, Impact head coach Frank Klopas spoke to the media today about his addition to the group.
“We are excited to have him here,” he explained. “We are excited to finally get him with the team on the pitch.”
In regards to his availability for this Saturday’s game, Klopas said he expects him to be available.
“With the long flight, medical examination and everything that goes along with his arrival, we don’t want to push things, but he could definitely give us some minutes.”
The Impact takes on Klopas’ former team, the Chicago Fire, on Saturday at 6:30pm at Stade Saputo.
