The Seattle Sounders manager Sigi Schmid has admitted that he knew before the LA Galaxy match that some of his choices for the starting line-up will be criticised after the match. Seattle Sounders were taking on LA Galaxy in the crunch match, but they were defeated 3-0 in the most embarrassing manner. After the match, the Seattle Sounders manager Sigi Schmid said that he knew that his choices would be criticised if things did not go to plan. However, he has said that he is the first man when it comes to criticising if things do not go according to plan.
Seattle Sounders are extremely poor in the match against LA Galaxy, and the manager Sigi Schmid acknowledged this fact. He has said that the team was extremely good outside the 18 yard box, but when it came to the opportunities and creating chances inside the box, they were extremely poor. He has said that analysing something from the hindsight is extremely easy. Sigi Schmid did not utilise the star striker Eddie Johnson for most of the match. He has said that one of the reasons for it was due to the fact that he did not want to risk the player getting injured once again.
“I’m the kind of coach where the first guy I look at is myself. I look at myself in the mirror and say, ‘Is there something, maybe, I would’ve done differently? Would I have maybe made a different sub?’ I run all those things through my mind. It’s easy to sit here and say, ‘No, I would’ve started exactly the same.’ I’m probably leaning toward that,” Schmid said after the match. The team will be facing LA Galaxy in the next match after just a gap of seven days when Schmid will be hoping for a better performance.
