Porter on the improve according to Vancouver Whitecaps coach

Promising Vancouver Whitecaps midfielder Kyle Porter is continuing to improve according to coach Teitur Thordarson.

The 20-year old is back in his homeland after a stint with German club Energie Cottbus and is getting back into the swing of things in the professional scene as he attempts to make the Whitecaps’ first MLS roster.

Thordarson said that the former Whitecaps Residency youngster has the attributes to be a top-class player and admitted that he was continually getting better.

“The qualities of Kyle are very intriguing because he’s technically very good and his speed is great,” Thordason said. “When he manages to get these things working together, he’s a dangerous player. He’s tactically getting better and better, learning the runs that we want him to do. We saw a lot of that today and it was very good.”

And the Canada U20 international, born in Toronto, believes he knows what he needs to do to make it at the top level.

“I think that I just have to continue to be more aggressive attacking and defending, continue to press, and just continue to score goals,” Porter said. “It would be amazing, Vancouver’s like my second home now, so to make the team would be an honor.”
