MONTREAL - Joey Saputo, the president of the Montreal Impact, celebrated his recent attempt at patience as he resisted the urge to fire head coach Rémi Garde after the opening day loss against the Vancouver Whitecaps.
"I've been working on self control," stated Saputo to The Nutmeg News. "And I feel like this is a great moment for me, so I'm going to take a little break and celebrate having the willpower to avoid having 6 head coaches since 2011."
Sources indicate that after Mauro Biello departed the team in October of 2017, a reflective Saputo made a priority out being patient for the 2018 season, at least until October.
"I'm 100% behind Rémi," stated Saputo. "I'm here for him, until I'm not, but I'm not not going to be there for him when I need to not be there to be there for him if he needs me there at all, which he will not, unless he does."
The Nutmeg News will have more on this as Saputo starts getting an itchy feeling around October/November.
