MINNEAPOLIS — Even though his team lost again on the road, New York City FC head coach Domenec Torrent felt his team played its best road match in a while.
“We had 70 percent of the ball,” he said after the 2-1 defeat to Minnesota United Saturday night. “In the first half we controlled all the time, but we made two mistakes, which happens in soccer and we paid for out mistakes.
“Maybe the second half we created more chances, but we controlled the ball well in the first half. I’m disappointed by the result, not by the game. Maybe this was the best game that New York City played away, maybe. My opinion today, is that New York City played really well here in Minnesota.”
“Minnesota played aggressively with us. At the end, we lost the game. That’s not good for us. The performance for me was good. Better than Montreal where we drew the game, and tonight where we lost. It’s not easy to explain to people and our fans what happened. I prefer to always talk about what happened on the field, not the result. Because the result is easy. You win the game, it’s okay. You lose the game, everything is wrong.”
