Torrent’s disappointment: “I don’t like the attitude of the team”
Dome Torrent is not happy after the bad performance and defeat against D.C. United. This is the reaction of the New York City FC coach:
“My feeling after the game is that we had big problems in the first 20 minutes of the first half, I do not understand what happened, I told them to play with a lot more confidence and in the last 20 minutes of the second half we improved.
They scored the first goal with Acosta who looked like Maradona or Leo Messi, we have to improve in the attitude, it is not a tactical problem, we played a month ago against Acosta and Rooney but in another way.
I can not accept this bad attitude, we must play with confidence, much better as a team. At Yankee Stadium we played another way, we are not in a good moment, but they were more clinical than us. We have to improve and forget this game.
I was disappointed by our attitude especially in the first half, I do not want excuses, we played many games in a few days and now it’s the opposite, but despite this, we can play better.
Our goal is the playoffs, which is for this reason I decided to protect the players who have returned from the national team. Ismael‘s quality is undisputed, but when he travels for many hours it is difficult for the player to find the right energy “.
