Hi All, Jack here, and today CPLFever has released its most recent interview with former Montreal Impact player and current FC Edmonton player Shamit Shome!
CPLFever.ca has released its most recent interview with former Montreal Impact player, and current FC Edmonton player, Shamit Shome!
Shamit has done really well at Montreal Impact playing there for 4 seasons and making regular appearances.
When we talked with Shamit, we dove into his past experiences with FC Edmonton, his time with the Alberta Golden Bears, what it was like to play in the MLS, his game style, his call up to the National team, the CPL and getting signed by FC Edmonton.
Thinking back on the interview, one main thing that stood out for me was Shamit's mindset. When I talked with him I could tell how disciplined his mindset was and how focused he is on his goals – his work ethic, and consistency definitely match his desires. Imagine that as he played professional soccer, he also managed to get an engineering degree!
Move To FC Edmonton
With is most recent move to the CPL, Shamit says that he is very excited to play under Alan Koch and is excited to be back in his hometown! There is nothing quite like playing for your home crowd and we know Shamit will bring a lot of energy and excitement with him when he starts playing with FC Edmonton.
We also have some fun with the Rapid Fire portion of the interview and get to know him on a more personal level!
Shamit Shome, is a true example of hardwork and discipline. Such an interesting and inspiring guy, with a great story to tell, this is an interview you won't want to miss!
