"The decision was clear for me. Sean Davis and Tyler Adams are ready," Marsch said. "It was impossible not to make room for those guys to have opportunities. We know that those guys are going to make us a better team moving forward, and that's why the decision was made.
"It's cold, it does sound cold, I understand it," Marsch said. "It's not fair in a lot of ways, but it's the reality of the world that we live in. It's not an easy thing to get through because in life you have strong personal relationships, and in this business sometimes you have to put those to the side and it makes life not easy sometimes."
McCarty's departure breaks up the midfield trio he formed with Sacha Kljestan and Felipe Martins, which was arguably the best in the league, a unit that helped each of them reach new heights as players.
"Dax helped me a lot as a player, he enabled me to be a good attacking midfielder by finding me with very good passes between the lines," Kljestan told Goal. "We'll miss his ability to break up plays and recover balls in the midfield — he's one of the best in the league at that.
"Having said that, Sean Davis is more than ready to play," Kljestan added. "I trained with him a lot this offseason and he's motivated, he's got an engine on him and he's ready to work. You also have Tyler Adams, who is ready to contribute minutes in MLS this year."
