As MLS and Liga MX mull a new tournament like the SuperLiga of the mid-2000s, Taylor Twellman says the time is right for a new competition.
MLS commissioner Don Garber and Liga MX president Enrique Bonilla speak of their hopes of bringing unity to the two leagues as they announce the Campeones Cup.

San Jose Earthquakes coach Matias Almeyda believes the image of MLS is changing and that the league is becoming increasingly attractive for top younger players.

The Argentine is a recent arrival in MLS and thinks the notion of it being a "retirement league" is outdated.

"Obviously it's projected that from now into the future [the league] gets better, but I see a big change with respect to incoming players," said Almeyda in an interview with ESPN. "Now young players are coming, whereas before older...
