“It’s a lot more beautiful to watch the game with Wayne on the field. I think every one of our fans can recognize that,” said Levien. “Around the organization, he’s made a massive impact.”

“We couldn’t be happier. It’s really a coup for us,” said Levien. “So many people have stopped me on the street, even on my way to Audi Field this morning, talking about the excitement about having Bill back.”
D.C. United enter Sunday’s home game against Orlando City SC in last place in the Eastern Conference, five points back of three teams and 11 points out of a playoff spot, but with three-to-five games in hand over the rest of the conference.
