Montreal Impact welcome Vancouver MLS franchise

Montreal Impact general manager Nick De Santis sees only upside in Canada gaining another MLS franchise through Vancouver Whitecaps. Speaking to The Ottawa Citizen, De Santis said: "It's great to see another Canadian market get to the highest level of soccer (in North America), Of course, hearing about Vancouver and knowing what our vision is and the way we do things, we should be there, too. That we're not is a bit disappointing, but in the end I believe the club will always work to better itself in every aspect, be it on the field or in administration.

"I also believe in (team president) Joey Saputo's vision, which is to see the franchise compete at the highest level. One day it will happen."
