Vancouver Whitecaps defender Carlyle Mitchell made a return to action for the MLS club on the weekend after recovering from a knee injury which ruled him out of this country’s 1-0 loss to Mexico at the CONCACAF Gold Cup last month.
Mitchell was a second half substitute in Whitecaps’ 1-0 loss to Philadelphia Union, later saying he was delighted to be back on the pitch but even more impressed by the response he received from his peers at the club following his return from international duty with T&T.
“It’s been great. The team did pretty well and a lot of people recognised that.
It’s always good to hear people talking about the team doing good. It helps a lot with your confidence,” Mitchell said.
The 25-year-old former Joe Public player has matured and his game continues to develop. He knows that maintaining regular playing time in the MLS or any other league that allows him to play among seasoned professionals will only help him further.
“It’s important which is why I always keep working hard and striving to be better. I want to keep playing at a high level. This will help me when I’m representing the country and for my personal game as well it will be a boost,” Mitchell added.
