Schmid speaks from Argentina

I asked team employee Zac Kaplan to post a few questions to the Sounders FC coach yesterday before the River Plate game, and here are the responses. Thanks to Zac for helping me out…

-Jose

On where the team is with setting the final roster)

“I think we’re pretty close on our 20 man roster. What we’re really doing right now is trying to finalize things in our developmental roster as well. We’re probably going to have a couple of new bodies coming in on Monday, just to look at a couple people there as well. We’re going to try and make those decisions pretty quickly next week and also finalize that. There is definitely going to be three or four guys from here that won’t be with us when we go into Seattle.”

(On what they are you looking for in the last few exhibitions) “What we want to accomplish is get fine tuned in terms of our free kicks both offensively and defensively. That’s something that we want to accomplish. We want to get the last bit of fitness work as well that deals a little bit more with our sprinting and our speed. The major thing we still need to accomplish is to create some full-sided training games. We’ll probably play a little more full-sided training games in the next two weeks then we would normally do in a week leading up to a game, just to make sure we get more 11- v- 11 time for our group.”

(On Roger Levesque) “Roger is still in the hunt, and is still moving forward.”
