LA Galaxy: Best Quotes of the Season So Far

LA Galaxy have gotten off to a bit of a mixed bag of results so far in this 2019 season winning two games and losing one. More than that, the inconsistent play that seemed to plague them the past two seasons, and seemingly the first two matches, seemingly disappeared in the latest match versus Minnesota United.

However, a quick look at the score (3-2) and one could question whether that was actually a complete performance. Those who saw the game know that it was closer than it should have been as the Galaxy played at a very high level and dominated most of the game.

Who said this and about who?

“He was a machine for us.”

We take a look at some of my favorite quotes of these three matches.

LA Galaxy vs Chicago Fire

“The fans cheered and supported throughout the whole game. It’s a great joy to be able to have these fans every game and I hope that our next home game against [Minnesota] at home we are able to fill the stadium and make it a fortress.” –Gullermo Barros Schelotto on the fans support in the season opener

“I said yesterday when I was talking to the media, I think he’s the best talent in MLS by far.”

Zlatan on his goal, “I knew he would hit the post and it would bounce straight to me.”

FC Dallas vs LA Galaxy

Schelotto: “We need to be better, more focused because we can’t make those mistakes because we lose the game.”

Ethan Zubak was signed during the week and played his first game with the first team: “I don’t think it’s still quite hit me yet”.

LA Galaxy vs Minnesota United

Schelotto on the match, “I think today, the pressure was perfect.”

“I talk with him, and today he was a leader” – Schelotto on the performance of Jonathan dos Santos.

Schelotto: “I think during this week we worked on paying attention on every training; even every word I gave to them in the field this week.”

Chris Pontius about the teams performance, “We said we were going to make the mistake of being over-aggressive if anything.” Pontius gave high praise on Uriel Antuna’s performance “He was a machine for us.”

“He works his ass off every day.”

– Pontius on Sebastian Lletget

Antuna on his performance “Like I said since I got here, I will work hard every day so I can one day go back to Europe. I have worked hard since preseason to be in top shape and I am here to be a champion and give the best I can.”

Antuna on the level of MLS, “This league is not easy. The league is growing and is getting better. I was very surprised since the first game, to see how the league is, and it’s not easy at all.”

Wrap it Up

With winning, comes better quotes as the players and coaching staff feel more loose.

Also can we ask Pontius for his opinions on all of his teammates? He gives us some great quotes!
