Matt Besler is the Sporting Kansas City captain, a U.S. Men's National Team veteran, an MLS Cup champion and a three-time U.S. Open Cup winner. Few American defenders have experienced as much on-field success over the last decade than the native Kansan, who has also garnered a slew of individual honors throughout his playing career.

But Besler is also a husband, a father and a loyal family man. And the experiences and lessons that come with that are oftentimes more valuable than the ones that come from the soccer pitch.

Sporting KC's center back recently joined The DTALKS Podcast, a podcast tailored to dads that revolves around kids and family life. Listen to the full podcast below as Besler discusses his book "No Other Home" and the happiness that comes with staying close to those around him.
