Kamal Miller eagerly awaited


MONTREAL – Kamal Miller’s progress has taken him straight to the Major League Soccer (MLS) All-Star Game and when he returns to CF Montreal, the Canadian defender will have to expect to work even harder to satisfy his coach Wilfried Nancy.

The Frenchman is one to want to get the best out of the strongest elements of his squad and, this season, Miller has established himself as a very reliable resource in the defensive backline. The confidence he brings back after the MLS stars win over the Liga MX stars will be important for the final sprint.

“I’m waiting for him with a firm footing, because it’s a good way for me to be even more demanding with him,” Nancy said at a press conference at the Center Nutrilait on Thursday. Kamal, he has super interesting qualities and potential.”

“As I often say, on a scale of 0 to 10, it’s only a 7,” he said, continuing his analysis. He has games at 8, weeks of training at 9, but he has never reached 10. With the coaching staff, these are things that we work on with him. He must realize this if he wants to last a long time.

In his second campaign in Montreal, Miller seems to be playing with more confidence. This trust is reciprocated with Nancy, who has employed him 18 times in the starting XI. His impact goes beyond the scoresheet, although we’ve seen him attacking more lately.

A little nervous

The work is important, but the pleasure is just as important for Nancy. The instructor and his assistants were proud to see their foal at the star game. The 25-year-old back was also one of the two players chosen by commissioner Don Garber.

“The first ball, he stuttered a bit, as they say, admitted the pilot with a smile, he who watched the game presented in Minnesota on television. After that he was fine. He made Kamal; he was the warrior behind on a tackle to save a goal. He was a little stressed and that’s normal, knowing him. Little by little, he let go and I think he took pleasure.

At CF Montreal, Miller’s appointment was a pleasant surprise for everyone. Midfielder Djordje Mihailovic, injured in July, was a more anticipated candidate, but who was ultimately ignored.

“The eyes he had when he was told [en juillet], it was beautiful to see. He deserves it, and the hard part starts now,” recalled the coach.

Miller will have to find the solutions himself in the slower periods, Nancy believes. This is how the best players work and above all, those who manage to stay at a high level for a long time.
