What They're Saying: Djordje Mihailovic

"What struck me is that they trained in complete silence. Nobody spoke. Only [Sergio] Aguero made a sound, he laughed now and then. The only thing you heard was the sound of the ball going around. That made it even more surreal. It was pure poetry. Art. And I got to be there. Even participate in it. Unforgettable."

-- Djordje Mihailovic, who moved to Dutch club AZ in January, recalling when he was 15 and was called in from the Chicago Fire academy to train as a fill-in player alongside Lionel Messi and the rest of the Argentina national team, which was in his hometown Chicago for the 2016 Copa Centenario.
