Sounders FC

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

May 19, 2010 at 2:18 PM

Sounders FC coach Sigi Schmid quotes on Wed. (release)

(On CONCACAF Champions League draw . . .) “We are paired with a Central American team which should be a team from El Salvador and we should know before the eighth of June. But obviously the only condition right now is because El Salvador has the issue going on with FIFA right now. That’s the only thing that might change that. We have a pretty good idea that it’s one of three El Salvadorian teams.”

(On competing in MLS, Champions League and U.S. Open Cup this summer . . .) “We want to win everything because we are greedy and selfish. A lot of clubs are like that, I think. Obviously it’s always a week to week thing. We have to see how certain people are, how they responded. I think we have some good depth. I think our depth as guys get healthy will only get better and then we just have to make the right decisions at the right time. Obviously MLS Cup, winning your country’s championship, I think is always the most important goal. Champions League is certainly a very important goal and defending the Open Cup is something we would like to do as well. So we are going to try and do the triple if we can but that’s a lot of work for us. We just have to go week to week.”

(On Nate Jaqua returning against San Jose . . .) “Probably not. It’s probably a little bit too early. He’s making progress, not as quick of progress that he would like for sure. A little when you have a surgery like that as you’re getting back into it, you’re tearing a little bit of scar tissue from the surgery, et cetera. So he’s going through that a little bit. But he’s definitely making progress.”

(On other Sounders FC injuries . . .) “Pete [Vagenas] will be out for sure for this weekend. [Osvaldo] Alonso is making actually very good progress. We were happy with what we saw from him today. So he’s pretty much almost there. We will know tomorrow for sure. And [Brad] Evans was better today than yesterday so we will see how he feels tomorrow.”
