Clint Dempsey: Player of the Month is ‘cool … but I would say it’s more about the team.’

Sounders FC’s Clint Dempsey met with reporters briefly after Thursday’s practice (I joined in progress since it started moments after media was allowed in). The USMNT captain was asked, in particular, about winning MLS Player of the Month, an award he claimed by an overwhelming margin.

“It’s cool,” Dempsey said. “It’s always good to be recognized for doing a good job, but I would say it’s more about the team and how we’re positioned in the table, being at the top. That’s more exciting.

“It’s about us continuing that form, keep working at things, and keep pushing up and making sure we get as many points as possible this season. … Try to make the playoffs and try to win an MLS Cup, that’s what the goal is.”

Here is more from Dempsey:
