In his first season as Head Coach of New Mexico United, Zach Prince has said that he wants this team to be stronger on the attacking end, and Brett says that made coming to NM United more attractive. “I was just talking to him (Zach Prince) maybe two days ago or maybe a day ago and just having a good conversation on the type of football we want to play. I am just excited to be apart of the team and I am ready to go”, said Neco Brett.
