  • Ledezma garners first assist
  • Chanot pokes fun of him in training
  • Loving life at NYCFC

WHAT HAPPENED? As his first month with New York City FC draws to a close, Richy Ledezma turned in a Man of the Match performance on Saturday in his first start for the team having previously made three consecutive substitute appearances. The American midfielder, on loan from PSV Eindhoven, has been enjoying life in the Big Apple with his teammates making the club "feel like home".

WHAT THEY SAID: “I mean, yeah, it’s a good feeling, especially giving [an assist] to Maxime Chanot,” Ledezma said. “He always makes fun of me in training, but like I said to give an assist to my teammates is just an incredible feeling. I feel like I should have scored two tonight, but it’ll come.”

THE BIGGER PICTURE: A first start and a first assist for NYCFC will be a welcome sight for the youngster who has been looking to push his way into more first-team action. Ledezma’s loan move to NYCFC was probably a needed one for the young midfielder, after only appearing in seven Eredivisie matches for PSV this season.
