The Nutmeg Podcast: Johnny Russell talks 2020 season, pranks and more

A new episode of The Nutmeg Podcast debuted this week as 610 Sports Radio host Josh Klingler caught up with Sporting Kansas City forward and fan favorite Johnny Russell.

A 29-year-old Scottish international with over a dozen years of professional experience, Russell has hit the ground running in Major League Soccer as one of Sporting Kansas City's most influential players over the last two seasons. In 2018, he became the fourth member of the club to record double-digit goals and assists in a single regular season. Last year, he nearly replicated the feat with nine goals and nine assists as the team's offensive MVP.
