KC Wizards’ Onalfo on Montero: “I think he’s a punk.”

WOW….That’s the Curt Onalfo I have met before, really outspoken and blunt.
The Kansas City Wizards’ coach wouldn’t remember it, but I talked to him after the U.S. Open Cup match last year when the USL Sounders beat his Wizards on PKs at Qwest Field. Onalfo was clearly not happy to have had to travel to Seattle for the match in the middle of his team’s season. And he was unhappy long after the Wizards’ 1-0 loss to Sounders FC, a feeling that carried over to today.
Onalfo thought Seattle’s Fredy Montero took a dive to draw a foul in the 89th minute that led Sounders FC’s 1-0 win on a PK in the 90th minute. In the following story from the Kansas City Kansan. Onalfo said he was furious after the game and expressed his disgust for Montero.
