Coach SIGI SCHMID:On Chivas fans at Qwest) "It's great for Chivas. It's the first time that I think the visiting team has had good representation. Even though they had their fans here, the Seattle fans still dominated and hopefully we convinced some of the Chivas fans that the Seattle Sounders are worth supporting as well."
On Seattle goals) "I think that one hit him on the shin as much as he hit it. It was a great shot by [Fredy] Montero. A good left-footed shot that beat the goalkeeper. And [Mike] Fucito had a great shot in the first half and it hit the post. Sanna [Nyassi] was there where he needed to be and sometimes when it's going well for you, it's really going well. I'll take that little bit of luck and his confidence continues to grow every time he makes a play like that."
On Mike Fucito) "I thought he did well. In the first half he did well. In the second half he disappeared a little bit. It could have been a little bit of fitness, a little bit of the game change, it was their possession and they held onto it more, he didn't find the game as well. But I thought in the first half that he was very dangerous."On game affecting preparation for Friday's league game against Chivas USA) "If we wouldn't have had a game tonight we would have trained hard. Obviously, we didn't play some guys tonight and held them out and put some other guys in. Tomorrow it will be like two groups at training. We'll be ready to play Friday night, it's not going to affect us."
Never miss a local story.
MIKE FUCITOOn his goal) "I thought we created a few opportunities pretty early and then were able to get two in so that definitely gave us the momentum and put them under pressure early."
On second half) "They were pretty good. They kept the ball well and they played five in the midfield, so there was a lot of interchanging and stuff. I think we could've probably done a little bit better job defensively but at least we kept them in front of us."
On his shot that hit the post) "It felt really good. I thought it was in and it kind of, that ball knuckles. So an inch to the right, that's off the post and in. I thought I hit it well."
On his effort) "I think first half I was more effective. I think I ran out of gas a little bit towards the end. I would've liked to be a little more effective in the second half but that comes with fitness. I think now that my ankle is better I'll be fine going forward."
Goalkeeper TERRY BOSSOn the match) "I was real proud of the guys. The guys came out and gave a great effort, played pretty well, scoring two early goals always helps. I think it was a situation where halftime, 2-0, exact same situation we were in Monterrey. So I think that it was really nice to come out and remain focused and even though we gave up a goal we bounced back and got another one and solidified the victory. I think it was good for this group of guys who had been getting a run and a get that win against Marathón and then get this win here. I think a lot of the guys walked off the field feeling pretty decent about it. Obviously there are things that we can do better but I think it was nice to get a win."
On allowing a goal) "We have been there before. It's nice to draw on that experience and be able to bounce back and not let it slip away like it did in Monterrey."
On 74th-minute save at top left corner) "It was nice because he had a chance to push it and really wind up. I was tracking it right off his foot so wasn't like it was an unobstructed view or anything. It was nice to keep the ball out of the net, keep our team in the game."
Midfielder DAVID ESTRADAOn being a former Mexican league fan playing Chivas de Guadalajara) "It's either Chivas or America that my friends usually go for. I'm a Cruz Azul fan but it was obviously a great honor for me to step on the field with Chivas and actually beat them."
On the crowd) "A couple comments before the game started is that we are the away team today. Obviously at the end, it's the enjoyment of the fans and I think everyone enjoyed it."
