Colorado Rapids coach Oscar Pareja said today that the uncertainty about who the Sounders will start at goalkeeper tomorrow did not affect his team’s training this week or their approach in the game tomorrow.
“No, it doesn’t at all,” he said. “We spend 90 percent of our time preparing ourselves.”
More from the coach:
On friendly win over Swansea City on Tuesday) It’s a good feeling for the boys, a good feeling for the team. It was for them a game where they came out of it thinking, ‘We know we can get results.’ … But at the same time, we are at the point now where we need to be convinced that we can get results in the league.
On giving up goals) We have been struggling with some stuff in the back, some mistakes. But I’m not always just look at the back four. I always look at the defensive side as a unit … the one who starts is (the goalkeeper). When we are defending the first defender (can be a forward). It’s a collective effort.
On the recent trade for former Sounder Tyson Wahl) Tyson is adjusting well. … Tyson is providing us with good things that we need.
