Hernandez and Leibold interviews from media day.

Felipe and Tim on the Shades of Blue podcast



Part three of the Sporting Kansas City media day interviews on the Shades of Blue podcast. This time we have Felipe Hernandez and Tim Leibold join the pod. Sporting KC is preparing for the home opener against the LA Galaxy.

Felipe Hernandez is a homegrown player that has played at every level in the Sporting KC Pro Player Pathway.

Tim Leibold is a German left-back that joined Sporting KC in January but we get to hear how far back SKC was interested in him.
