In a team press conference Thursday evening ahead of New York City FC’s inter-conference battle against LAFC, City manager Ronny Deila revealed to the media that new additions Thiago Andrade and Talles Magno will both be available in varying capacities on Saturday.
Thiago is more ready than Talles for Saturday from a fitness standpoint according to Ronny Deila. Fans can look for 10-15 minutes from each possibly. #NYCFC— Michael Allen (@msa_allen) May 27, 2021
Deila told the media: “10-15 minutes... I think that’s what we’re thinking [for Talles]. And Thiago is more ready. And he’s also available.”
The NYCFC manager also said that the entire team had made the plane ride to Los Angeles and that everyone — including Anton Tinnerholm and Alex Callens — should be available in some capacity.
NYCFC is looking to rebound from a late-game collapse last weekend in what ultimately became a 2-1 loss to the Columbus Crew.
