This week’s Rapids Podcast has an interview with goalkeeper Matt Pickens, as he prepares to make his comeback from a lengthy lay-off.

The 31-year-old has been sidelined for almost four months, following a double fracture of his left arm at Real Salt Lake on March 16.

Pickens is set to feature for the Rapids on Friday in the international friendly against Santos Laguna in Albuquerque.

“I’m delighted to be back,” Pickens told the Rapids Podcast. ”I don’t expect any butterflies. It’s just like riding a bike.”

Podcast episode #15, hosted by David Lindholm and Richard Fleming, also hears from Rapids Women’s head coach, Daniel Clitnovici, as they get set for their final game of the season, and from Rapids U-16s players ahead of the Development Academy finals in Houston next week.
