Kevin Doyle ready to ‘do the business on the pitch’ with the Rapids

Kevin Doyle has revealed he can’t wait to get going with the Colorado Rapids after completing his move to MLS this week.

The Irish striker joins from Wolves after ten consecutive seasons in English football and wants to get training with his new teammates right away.

“I can’t wait to get going,” he told the club’s official YouTube channel. “It seems like it’s been dragging out for a while and I’ve been waiting for the season to end and get over here. So I’m looking forward to training tomorrow.

“I had some DVD’s sent over and I’ve been watching. A couple of game were on TV at the start of the season in the UK so I’ve been keeping up to date and watching.

“There’s been some good results, a lot of draws obviously, but the lads seem to be playing very well. I’ve seen them hit the post and the crossbar an awful lot of times so hopefully that bit of luck will go our way.”

Doyle also spoke about how Major League Soccer is continuing to grow across the pond and that he is ready to enjoy his experience abroad.

“In Europe, in Ireland and England it’s [MLS] on TV now. It’s grown, more and more people know about it, it’s in the papers more and more and that can only keep going I hope. I hope to be a small part of that and really enjoy my time here.

“It’s a league that’s on the up. I think people are excited to play in America and experience something that’s different to your whole professional life as a soccer player.”

Doyle is not the only new striker the Rapids have acquired in the past week as Argentine forward Luis Solignac also joined, and the former Reading frontman admits there is extra pressure on them to fire the goals to life Colorado off the bottom of the Western Conference.

“Hopefully the new strikers can help out now and it’s our job to deal with the extra pressure and try to do the business on the pitch.”
