MLS commissioner Don Garber was in England today and he said he doesn’t believe the league’s ongoing collective bargaining dispute with its players will result in lost games.

“We will not lock them out, and we are confident they will not go on strike,” he said. “We will not make any decisions just to avoid a work stoppage. We’ve got to make decisions that will ensure the long-term financial success of the MLS, and I’m sure we will not make any decisions to prove a point.

“I don’t think any of our players want to go on strike, and we are taking their issues very seriously. The expectations are that the season will start on time, and the expectation is that will be reach agreement with our players.”

Here’s a full report from the Associated Press.
