Kyle Martino, candidate for U.S. Soccer president, breaks down his campaign and explains how his views are different from the other candidates. Martino was a professional soccer player for six years.
He was already fed up with the state of the sport before the U.S. men's soccer team's embarrassing loss to Trinidad & Tobago. On the plus side, Martino says the loss created the first open election for U.S. soccer in a long time.
Martino explains youth participation in soccer is down 25% over the past year. He says U.S. soccer has turned the sport into a rich kids' game. Martino is running on a platform of transparency, equality and progress.
