Mike Petke Throws Down the Gauntlet to NYCFC

Like only he can...

Bob DeChiara-USA TODAY Sports

Alright, so the team's official statement on our new neighbors was tame. Too tame.

Enter Mike Petke. Speaking to Soccer By Ives, he threw down the gauntlet as only he could...

"It's good to have a true derby, a true rivalry," Petke said. "I think it's good for the league to grow and all that.

"In the flip-side of that, we have a history here," Petke added. "They're the new guys coming in and I'm looking forward to smashing them in 2015 to be honest with you."
