Looks like maybe Chanot in the training video today? If not, who is the tall guy wearing the black half top in the circle drill at 2:50?

NYCFCfan NYCFCfan said it was Bruno Perrone from the Hammerheads on twitter. not on trial
Yup, the guy was suspended from their match (the day of the practice) and joined up with NYC to train. NYCFC needed more bodies, and in the past they've pulled guys from local teams (see RJ Allen) to train with, so while it's not really a trial per se, they got a look at what he can do.

They should get a look at the English central defender of theirs. He was a beast in the one USOpen Cup of theirs that I watched.

He is everything I wanted him to be. Absolutely fantastic today against Colorado. I expect he'll be a staple of our back line for years to come.
Agreed, played tall and strong and locked down the center in the 2nd half. He even made easier jobs for Iraola & Brillant by covering their weakside when the ball was on the right.
