Sounders FC

Daily coverage of Seattle Sounders FC, MLS and world soccer.

July 11, 2009 at 4:56 PM

More quotes from today — Sounders FC 2, Dynamo 1

These are translated by the team, from Fredy Montero:
(On the goal) “That was a good play. We had time for Nate (Jaqua) to control the ball, I had time to indicate where I wanted it…he found the spot, he found the place. I had to chest it down, then it didn’t go down so I had to touch it again, and then everything was very quick. When it was in, I just went to celebrate.”
(On his reaction after the goal) “I had diagonal position, everything happened very quick. My first reaction was just to raise my arm and celebrate.”
Goalkeeper Kasey Keller
(On fill-in coach Brian Schmetzer) “We were taunting him a little bit with Adrian [Hanauer] in here [the locker room] that now he’s going to be taking a couple of other head coaching jobs or Adrian has to pay him better, one of the two. We have a head coach and a coach and a half. We knew Brian would handle this with ease, he has so much experience, and the guys responded really well.”
(On opposing goalie Pat Onstad’s highlight save) “It was a great save from Pat. Sometimes you just run across the goal and hope the ball is somewhere you can get it…I was telling him before the game I was just happy because its the first time I’ve played where someone was older than me on the field. So that was nice.”
On Ianni’s goal: “I’m happy for him. Obviously it’s his old team and you want to prove something. Congratulations.”
Defender Patrick Ianni
(On the game) “It was a good game for us. We needed to run with these guys and everyone worked really hard tonight. I’m happy the game gave me a chance and I was able to put it away.”
(On if he’d ever scored a bicycle kick) “Since I was six, no.”
(On scoring vs. his old team): “It’s special because they’re in first place right now, and I want to give this team as much as I can. It’s not like I hold too much of a grudge with them, they taught me a lot when I was down there. I’m just happy that all the work I did down there is coming in handy in Seattle.”
Ianni did say he should have cleared out the ball that led to the Dynamo’s goal.
