“We’re looking at everything to improve the squad.] We have high hopes for 2024, and we want to show what we can do as a club,” Henderson continued.
“Winning trophies and having high ambition is something we’ve had since day one.
Already, the team has added reinforcements in Julian Gressel, Nicolas Freire, and Luis Suarez.On January 25th, the squad landed in Saudi Arabia before having their first practice on the 26th.
Miami will play the aforementioned Al Nassr on February 1st after playing Al Hilal on the 29th.Though many fans were concerned about the team’s excessive travel, according to the club’s social media, Miami is traveling with over 100 staff and personnel to make sure the team is fit and their needs are taken care of.
