Minnesota United Robin Lod Teemu Pukki MLS season

Minnesota United's Robin Lod is excited to play with teammate Teemu Pukki. The team is preparing for preseason games in Arizona.

Minnesota United player Robin Lod recently expressed his excitement to play with Finnish teammate Teemu Pukki in the MLS this season. Lod described Pukki as a great player and expressed how they share a similar understanding of the game, making it easy to play alongside him. However, Lod's 2023 MLS season was cut short due to a knee injury, and he's still waiting to see how his joint reacts as preseason training ramps up.

Despite his injury, Lod is eager to perform this season, and he's open to playing in various positions on the field. He is the current regular-season goal leader for the Loons, while Pukki made an impressive 10 goals in 14 matches last season. Pukki is currently on paternity leave, but he is expected to rejoin the team soon.

Minnesota United's new Chief Soccer Officer, Khaled El-Ahmad, is set to arrive next week after finalizing his visa process. Lod is looking forward to seeing how El-Ahmad's vision will shape the team's future. It is expected that El-Ahmad will bring a pressing style of play to the team.

The team is scheduled to travel to Arizona for over 10 days of preseason preparations, where they will play several friendlies. MNUFC supporters have long wished for preseason games to be streamed, and it appears that their wish may finally be granted this year.

Several players, including Emanuel Reynoso, Tani Oluwaseyi, Franco Fragapane, and Hassani Dotson, are returning to training after missing time for various reasons. The team has also added new players, including Moses Nyeman, Alejandro Bran, and Carlos Harvey. Additionally, a handful of MNUFC2 players will join the first team in Arizona, signaling a promising start to the 2024 season.
