Sigi Schmid reacts to Peter Nowak’s comments

(On Peter Nowak’s comments following yesterday’s game about Freddie Ljungberg . . .) “That is Peter’s feelings. I’m not going to change the way he views it or feels about it. I focus and concentrate on my team. I not going to focus and concentrate on his team. I encourage my players to go 1-v-1 and that’s why when I was in Columbus and Seattle we tend to draw more fouls than other teams because we allow our players to go a little bit 1-v-1. But, that’s just my style of coaching. Freddie [Ljungberg] took a good knee. It wasn’t really in the back. It was more in the butt. And [Fredy] Montero had three ice bags on this morning from the knee he took in the back. Obviously we know what happened and he made his comments but that’s just the way they are.”
(On Peter Nowak’s comments on the quiet crowd . . .) “Again, that’s Peter. I think for us in the second half we would’ve wanted more [goals]. We were a little disappointed. We had some chances early in the second half. Sometimes when you are playing a man up you take your foot off the gas a little bit and I think we might have done that. But, first game of the year and we got three points. The next time we play them it will be a little bit easier because we will have a better idea of what they are all about. Everything happens on the field. Everything else is just for you guys to write about.”
