SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – Damir Kreilach is the most beloved character within the Real Salt Lake organization, and for good reason. The key midfielder is polite, genuine, and truly humble. Now, a video has emerged of Kreilach’s celebration following his recent MLS All-Star victory.

Kreilach is chasing his daughter around the pitch in a video that encapsulates what being a parent is all about. His daughter is smiling and laughing and Kreilach lunges towards her in an attempt to gently tackle her to the ground.

Kreilach will go down in Real Salt Lake history as one of the greatest players to ever don the Claret and Cobalt. However, the work that he does every day in an attempt to better the people around him will be what most people will forever remember Kreilach for.

The MLS All-Star was a first for Kreilach. He came on at halftime and acted as the second-half captain, then, stepped up to the spot and buried the first penalty for team MLS following the 90 minutes of regular time.

He also became the ninth player in club history to represent Real Salt Lake at the All-Star event. Kyle Beckerman leads all players with eight appearances in his career.

RSL Next Match

Real Salt Lake will travel to Vancouver this upcoming Sunday, August 29th, for a date with the Whitecaps at BC Place. Kickoff is slated for 8 p.m. and can be streamed for free via the KSL Sports & KSL 5 TV apps or on KSL Sports dot com.

Due to yellow card accumulation, Kreilach is unavailable to play and will serve his one-match suspension. He will next be available for selection on September 4th when RSL hosts FC Dallas.
