Hired by CF Montreal on December 21, Hernán Losada is in the second week of his training camp at the helm and is happy with what is happening on the field.

He is particularly satisfied to see his players have arrived ready for next season which begins on February 25th.

“All the players are back in good physical condition, mentally and with good energy. It is important that after two months of vacation everyone is back in good shape. What is happening on the ground is very good,” said the new coach on the show. From 5 to 7 Wednesday.

Losada expects she will soon be able to count on Kei Kamara, whose case has made headlines After he demanded exchange on social media while he failed to show up to the camp. Sick, he stayed in Africa, but has just returned to Montreal and must now undergo return-to-work protocol before being reunited with his teammates. The two men have already discussed it together twice, last Sunday and Tuesday.

“Kei arrived yesterday. He’s still a player on our team. He’ll do all the MLS protocol checks and hopefully he’ll be with us on the field next week. We’ll see what happens,” Losada explained.

Losada comes after a historic year for CF Montreal. Several changes were made to the roster with player transfers and the departure of a highly regarded coach in Wilfried Nancy. For him, the next season is not a transitional year, he expects good results.

“It’s great that the club had a good season with Wilfried. Now there are players who have left, and this is a new year. With great pleasure we will also try to have a good season. Perhaps we will win fewer matches, but we will go further in the playoffs.

“I want to see a very aggressive team that plays attacking football. We will try to entertain the fans, have a good season, especially at home, and win. We also want to give chances to young players from the academy, that’s part of the club’s philosophy. We will do everything we can to achieve that.”

Losada arrives in Montreal with a reputation for being a tough coach with his players, but stresses that he knows how to maintain a balance between business and pleasure.

“There are times for laughter and times for seriousness. I am a former player, I know very well how it is, I know the difference between being a player and being a coach. It is also important for me to have fun on the field.”

Since the team made the jump to MLS in 2012, Losada has been the ninth man to serve as a head coach in Montreal. He hopes to stabilize this situation.

“I have a two-year contract with a third option. I hope we can bring stability, not only for me, but for the team. Results are very important. I’m here for Montreal.”
