Johnson Orlando In Quotes

In Quotes: NYCFC 1-2 Orlando City

All of the key soundbites from the home locker room following our home defeat to Orlando City…

Vieira on Why NYCFC Lost…

“We lost today not because they were better, but it was because we didn’t take our chances and we didn’t defend well.”

Camargo on Working Hard…

“It’s very special to play for this team, to play at Yankee Stadium. Even more with the fans, the way they support us. We didn’t get the result today but better things are coming.”

Stertzer on Frustration…

“We always want to get three points at home – maybe we didn’t play our best game but we pushed strong at the end and could have got a tie out of it.”

Vieira on Wallace…

“I think he was really concentrating on the defensive side of the game and it didn’t allow him to go as forward as he would want to or what the game allowed him to do. I strongly believe he can play that position as well so we have to keep working on that and we will see.”

Harrison on History Repeating…

“The last couple of minutes, the same thing happened last game, they were on the back foot and we just struggled to get that final goal. It’s something we’re going to be looking at the next time we see them.”

Harrison on Larin…

“We knew Cyle was a big threat to us and unfortunately we were unable to shut him down today. He scored two good goals in the box that could have easily been prevented, but we had our chances as well again on the other side and we struggled to put them away so it goes both ways really.”

Wallace on Physicality…

“It wasn’t an easy match for us. I thought today was a physical game. It wasn’t the easiest but we tried to step up to the challenge but ultimately things didn’t go our way.”

Chanot on Decisions…

“I don’t want to blame the referee, I think we have to think of ourselves first, but I don’t think the referee helped us during the game. He forgets one or two penalties that maybe might change the game. I don’t want to talk too much about this. It’s a game we have to forget, congratulations to Orlando and we have to get back to work on Tuesday.” 

Johnson on Grit…

“We’re a team that is a very good, solid, technical team and we have guys who are gritty, but we have to be able to match the level of intensity, especially with physical teams to give us a chance.”
