Grant checks in with Brenden Aaronson, the 20-year-old USMNT and Red Bull Salzburg midfielder who made his debut with his new club over the weekend and got an assist in his first start with Salzburg on Wednesday. Aaronson explains how things have gone since he arrived in Austria earlier this month; the welcome he got from Salzburg coach Jesse Marsch and his family; the level of training sessions so far; and his first thoughts on the Austrian league compared to MLS. Aaronson, who starred with the Philadelphia Union, also tells his personal story, from the soccer influence of his father, Rusty, to his closeness with his younger brother, Paxten, who's in the Union organization, to his favorite players that he follows when he watches games on television.
