SEATTLE HEAD COACH SIGI SCHMID
“I thought we played well in the first half I thought we had more of the game, I thought we created some good chances. We had Evans’ chance in the first half we had Sturgis in, in the second half we had Evans in as well, he probably makes a great save late in the game. I was not displeased with the guys who played. I thought we were doing alright and were pretty comfortable and then we made a mistake at the back and that was a shot of adrenaline for Toronto and we made another mistake and then after that, Toronto dominated the game for the last 20 minutes.”
Talks about de Guzman’s play…
“I mean Julian’s a good player, he knows how to control the ball, and they played differently with him playing on the outside tucking in. But as I said I thought he played well and did some good things – until the goal came – in the first 65 minutes so for the first 65 minutes we weren’t too concerned”
SEATTLE SOUNDERS STEVE ZAKUANI
On what he thought the difference was today….
“We just gave up two bad goals we had enough chances to score maybe 3 or 4 maybe 5 and then we just made too many mistakes and they punished us. I don’t think they were two goals better than us, we just two mistakes and they scored.”
SEATTLE SOUNDERS FREDDIE LJUNGBERG
“I think this was the best we played all year, we played amazing, especially the first half. Like we said in here we all played very, very well. Sometimes unfortunately you make mistakes and we did two personal mistakes, it happens to everybody but it killed the game for us and that’s how they won the game. When you give up mistakes like that you get punished.”
On rotating lineup….
“It’s of course strange and a new experience for my career, but I can talk about today and I think we played amazingly well, we played a good passing game and we got criticized a little bit by fans at home and in general that we weren’t playing that well. But today I was impressed by the guys and how we played and all the credit for that and that’s why it’s so hard to take why we didn’t get all the points.”
