Mix Diskerud was on Cloud 9 when he signed with New York City FC on Jan. 13.
“Obviously I’m an American and now I have a chance to live in the States and I haven’t had that chance yet,” he later told me leading up to his debut season in the country. “That’s something I’ve been looking forward to.”
The midfielder was born in Oslo, Norway, to an American mother and Norwegian father. Mix played his entire professional soccer career in Norway until signing with New York City FC ahead of their inaugural season in Major League Soccer.
