Verde & Black Podcast: Diego Fagundez and Hector Jimenez

On today’s episode, we are bringing you double trouble with Diego Fagundez and Hector Jimenez.

You’ll hear why Diego considers being a professional soccer player to be the best job in the world, and how he wants to pass his passion on to his two children. He reveals the best and worst parts of his career, and the story of how he was approached to play for Austin FC.

We also ask Diego what it felt like to score the first goal in club history, and he tells us why he wants to play for as long as his body allows him to. We talk fitness, connecting with fans, and his hope for the next season with Austin FC.

Hector tells the story of why he has chosen to live in Mueller, what he loves about living his childhood dream, and why he believes that things will change for the better if the team continues to work hard. He tells us about the values that have given him the reputation of being fantastic in a locker room, and the players whose behavior he emulates.

Hector also shares with us that continuity is the magic element that has made teams successful, and why he believes there’s still time for the season to turn around during the upcoming 11 games.

We hope you tune in today to hear all this and more!
