SALT LAKE CITY -- Real Salt Lake is getting ready for next season, starting with a media day on Saturday where RSL Head Coach Jason Kreis spoke very candidly about last season and the one to come.  

Kreis said there will be “meaningful competition” for every position on the field this year, and he said this factor was the reason the team won a championship in 2009. He said the absence of that competition was an issue last year.

“There were certain positions on the field where the players felt like, ‘I can pretty much float by through this week of training because I know I’m going to start,’ and that will not be the case this year,” Kreis said.
