Sounders FC 0-1 New York Red Bulls, visiting quotes

Richie Williams – Assistant Head Coach
(On the status of Head Coach Hans Backe…) “He is doing fine; he needed some rest and will be back with us next week.”
(On coming out with a win in tough environment…) “You have to give our guys credit; this is tough place to play with great stadium and fans. They have a good team and come and get a good result, everybody from front to back played hard and deserved 1-0 win.”
(On embracing the challenge of getting a road victory…) “Nobody wants to have 29 road losses and we wanted to put an end to it and it be a different year. We battled and play intelligent and wanted to win. It was an excellent overall team effort.”


Mike Petke – Defender
(On having a different outcome this game than last year’s match…) “Everything was different, from the form we played to the physical nature of the match. We deserved to win this match, they are a great team. They are a very good team and very good at home and this is a big accomplishment for us.”
(On the team playing more crisp and precise…) “As opposed to last year we don’t have four guys playing defense and four guys playing midfield. It is 11 guys playing defense and 11 guys playing offense and that is the biggest difference and why were able to get a win tonight.”
Macoumba Kandji – Forward
(On the league starting to take them for seriously…) “Of course, when we played Chicago at home and they are a very good team. We got that one goal and we defended really well tonight. If we get a shutout and they way we defended meant we had a good chance at winning the game tonight.”
(On scoring the goal in tonight’s match…) “The goal is just like we practiced, I started at the goalkeeper and backed away. Whatever comes out is mine and I just hit it with my left foot and then it went in.”
