Catching Up With Timbers goalkeeping coach Memo Valencia

Guillermo "Memo" Valencia has been with the Portland Timbers for over two years, serving as the team's goalkeeper coach since head coach Giovanni Savarese's arrival before the 2018 season. Before that, Valencia's time in the game goes back to his native Colombia and through lower division soccer in the tri-state area, where he competed in the USISL against and with Savarese and fellow Timbers assistant Carlos Llamosa.

On this episode of Catching Up With, we learn about Valencia's time as a professional and how that informs his current task: preparing the likes of Steve Clark, Jeff Attinella and Aljaz Ivacic.
