Ahead of perhaps the biggest game of his young career, USMNT midfielder Brenden Aaronson joined Charlie and Jordan for the latest episode of The U.S. Soccer Podcast.
Just four months after his move to Europe, the 20-year-old will seek the first part of the Austrian “Double” as Red Bull Salzburg faces LASK Linz in the ÖFB Austrian Cup on Saturday, May 1. The Medford, N.J. native discussed fighting for two pieces of hardware, the pressure that comes with being the biggest club in the country, and the overall decision to join the Austrian giants above other potential moves.
While still in the early stages of his USMNT career, Aaronson had plenty to stay about his first steps with the senior team, reminiscing about his first call-up at age 18, his USMNT debut the following January, what the young group is striving for and the role Gregg Berhalter has played in his development so far.
