U.S. striker Charlie Davies spoke to the D.C. United website Thursday in advance of the first intrasquad scrimmage of his one-week trial with the Black-and-Red.
Among other topics, the former Boston College forward talks about the comfort level he feels with his new D.C. peers, several of whom he’s played with in U.S. national team camps—players such as Santino Quaranta, Dax McCarty, Josh Wolff and United coach Ben Olsen:
“I think I’m extremely lucky to come to a team like D.C. United where the guys are relatively young, and where everyone is part of a great group. Everyone has been really supportive of me coming here and working out with the team, so it’s been great. Just the confidence they are giving me already before I even get into a game situation has been unbelievable.”
Go give it a read, and check back this afternoon for a report on how Davies performed in his first practice game with D.C.
