Real talk with Luis Robles

It's a good time to be Luis Robles. The 28-year-old goalkeeper is starting for a team about to begin a playoff run, after all. 

Perhaps more importantly, though, Robles is back to earning a steady paycheck. 

In a phenomenally-candid interview on the Seeing Red! podcast over at Empire of Soccer, Robles reveals that the whole "steady paycheck" thing wasn't looking too good a few months ago. At least not as a soccer player. 

Forget the Red Bulls, Robles was in the real estate game for a little bit. Seriously. 

Listen to the full interview here, fascinating story.
