Atl Utd Group

All of the key soundbites from the home and away locker rooms following NYCFC’s emphatic win over Atlanta United…


Vieira on Villa…


“David is an important player for us and when he played the way he played today, he lifts the team. He’s one of the leaders. When he plays like he did today, the confidence builds in the team and that’s why it’s important for him to be at this level every single game.”


Villa on Victory…


“We did well today. It’s one of the best, if not the best game in our season. We have chances to score more goals, we play well, we don’t concede a lot. They score a goal, but they score a crazy, amazing goal. We defended well, we pressed well. I think we did almost 100 percent today well and congratulations to the team, the performance of the team was amazing.”


White on Assist…


“I’m getting more and more comfortable with the overlaps. Obviously, timing is everything. Today, I think Jack and I timed it really well and I got on the end of it. I saw both Rodney and David on the post so I just whipped it in and was hoping someone would hit it. So Rodney, he owes me something now.”


Wallace on Goal…


“It was great buildup. I tried to get a touch on it and luckily it fell to me and went into the back of the net.”


Moralez on Reaction…


“It was a tough game, I think in the first half we could’ve scored another goal to feel more secure going into the break but the reaction we gave in the second half showed how much we wanted the three points.”


Awuah on Debut…


“It’s an amazing feeling – you always wanted to have a debut for a great team - you dream about it as a kid. It was a big deal for me and I enjoyed every minute of it.”


Herrera on International Duty...


"I hope our team keeps this good form as we are all working hard. We won two games back to back. I'm leaving tomorrow for Italy to represent Venezuela. It's going to be great for our country if we win."




Gerardo Martino on Defeat…


“It wasn’t just a problem in the second half, the whole game we were the inferior side and even when we scored it was a half volley from outside the box and even in that moment we didn’t deserve the goal. The other team was just superior tonight.”


Jeff Larentowicz on Loss…


“I think we’ve held our own against the best in the league, but today we got beat by the better team. I’m not going to see its this overarching theme for us, but today we got beat.”
