Hany Mukhtar explains the road to success with Nashville SC

Nashville SC’s Hany Mukhtar spoke of his recent success in Major League Soccer after a disappointing debut season in 2020, saying it was difficult to adjust to “a new country and a new league”.

Mukhtar signed the league’s newest expansion team as the first designated player in August 2019, making a move from Brondby ahead of Nashville’s debut season.

While showing off brilliant moments on occasion, the midfielder found it difficult to reconcile a new country and a new league amid the chaos of the COVID-19 pandemic.

“It was a new country for me, a new league,” said Mukhtar, “I didn’t know anyone. The first year was good, but now it’s a really good season. I like the boys and we have great players.

Head coach Gary Smith stayed with the player despite initially disappointing numbers and bet on his potential as soon as he settled in.
