“We believe that if we play the same way and treat the game with the same respect, we can win again.“, said Cherundolo and in turn assured that despite not having a magic ball to guess the next result, he hopes that if they play in the same way, the result can be positive for his team.
The LAFC coach is aware of the favoritism they have to win the Concachampionsthis thanks to his list of great figures, however the word respect has not been missing during his last press conferences, since he knows that he must go one step at a time in the search for the desired results.
LAFC’s next match will be against the New England Revolution on Sunday, March 12, for what will be the third day of the MLS, a competition in which they have just defeated Portland with a score of 3-2. The return against Alajuelense will be on March 15 in Los Angeles and only a debacle could leave those led by Steve Cherundolo out.
