Josh Drack: His father is Chilean, his mother Japanese and he dreams of playing for La Roja: “I admire Alexis and Vidal”

Josh Drack (23), an American with a Chilean father and a Japanese mother, made news in recent hours. The left back used to play for the Los Angeles Galaxy second team, but will now move to Nashville II, the club’s reserve team that competes in MLS. His dream, obviously, is to ascend to the all-star roster for the state of Tennessee as soon as possible.

“I’m signing with the Nashville second team for one year and then I’m moving to the all-star roster. They contacted my agent and I was interested in the opportunity,” Drack said in a dialogue with AS Chile.

– Last season he was a figure in Los Angeles Galaxy II, but he couldn’t make it to the star team. Why?

– I learned a lot in Los Angeles. I had different coaches with different ideas and views on the players. The most important thing for me was not to get discouraged and keep working for when my time came.

– If you do well in Nashville, are you excited about a call to the Red?

– I would be very excited to be considered for the Chilean team. I just need a chance and then I can show my skills. I know that I haven’t played first-team football yet, but I also know that I am capable of playing at that level and exceeding it. My dream is to play for Chile.

– Which Red players do you admire?

– I admire Alexis Sánchez and Arturo Vidal for the time they have been at the top. They have played at a high level for many years and I hope to continue on that path.
