Gerso Fernandes has been one of Sporting Kansas City's top performers throughout the first half of 2019. When Sam McDowell of The Kansas City Star asked him why, he had a simple answer: He will soon be a father.
Given his own childhood as an orphan, it’s no wonder that’s where Gerso derives his motivation.
“I think a lot about (my childhood),” Gerso told The Star on Thursday. “I don’t know how I’m going to be as a father, but who I am on the field and off the field, that’s what my kid is going to see and be able to follow, if he wants to. I wanna be the best that I am so I can give him the best he can have from me.”
