Tim Melia is now the winningest goalkeeper in Sporting Kansas City history—but each and every one of his victories came after he nearly called it quits on his MLS career.
In the third episode of The Nutmeg Podcast with Josh Klingler of 610 Sports, Melia discusses exactly that and much more. Sporting are currently in the thick of a dramatic playoff push in the Western Conference, with Melia recording shutout wins in two of the club’s last four outings.
Listen to the full podcast below.
Melia and Sporting enter this week in preparation for the club's last five fixtures of the 2019 MLS regular season. The decisive stretch begins Sunday when Manager Peter Vermes' men visit the LA Galaxy at Dignity Health Sports Park in Carson, California. Kickoff is set for 9 p.m. CT with live coverage on FS1, FOX Deportes, the FOX Sports app, ESPN 94.5 FM and La Grande 1340 AM.
