Carson, CA - A disappointed Bruce Arena bemoaned his sides victory in the recent match against the Seattle Sounders as the LA Galaxy advanced to the next round of the US Open Cup.
"I've been trying to get out of this competition the entire season," stated Arena to The Nutmeg News. "Good grief, take one look at my lineups over the last few games and see how important this is to me. I mean, come ON, now."
Purportedly, Arena told his Galaxy players through a pre-recorded video that he hoped they would give a decent effort, and that he would see them in the games that really matter like the ones to ensure the position of the Galaxy heading into the playoffs.
"Gordon, you MORON! We were OUT!" stated Arena to Alan Gordon after he scored a goal 13 minutes after the Sounders took the lead in the game. "How many times do I have to say that we are trying to win another MLS cup, here!"
The Nutmeg News will have more on this as Arena starts the U-16 Galaxy team in the semifinals.
