Inter Miami's first week of training is well underway at Barry University. The players and Diego Alonso are getting to know each other, and we're getting some first impressions from some of the players on their boss.

Midfielder Lee Nguyen was selected by Inter Miami in the expansion draft. He's going to be a key veteran presence in the locker room. Nguyen has been in MLS since 2012 where he spent six years with New England before moving to LAFC in 2018.

Nguyen spoke about Alonso's mentality after training this week.
"He’s got a great mentality. He’s already instilling his ideas on the first day on how he wants to play. A lot of guys are buying into that and loving the idea of how he wants to play. He wants us to fight and to win at all costs.”

The midfielder also spoke about the scheme that Alonso is deploying.
“Can’t share too much,” Nguyen quipped. “Just from training yesterday, a lot of it was attacking ideas. Just trying to get those movements with your teammates, understanding each other and the flow. We’re all going to grow and we’re going to use this preseason to get that fluidity going.”
