Returnees Amadou Dia and Khiry Shelton: Kansas City feels like home

A pair of familiar faces who weren’t present in 2019 have returned to Sporting Kansas City.

As the club prepares for preseason training in Arizona, left back Amadou Dia and Khiry Shelton are about to embark on their second stints with Sporting.

Both enjoyed success in their first go-arounds at Children’s Mercy Park—Dia winning the 2015 Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup and Shelton helping the side finish first in the West in 2018—before their respective career paths took them to two very different places.

A familiar face ud83dude01 showed up today for an early workout.
