On his return: Happy to be out. Now fortunately I’m back to the field. Got to keep playing. Looking forward.
On former Sounders central defender Jhon Kennedy Hurtado visiting training: I want to talk to him. I’m happy to see him again. It’s going to be fun.
On learning to play with GK Troy Perkins: Troy is a pretty good goalkeeper. He’s been in the league a lot of years, so I think it’s going to be good for us that we got him. Now we’ve got to play the same to keep winning three points.
On communication with a new keeper: We got a couple of days off. It’s good for everybody to get rest. But now we’re back to work. We’ve got to focus now on Chicago. We have to do our best, play our game. Go there and play football, make sure we get the three points.
On team depth: We lost a couple of players to the national team, but we’ve got enough players to fill that spot. Saturday night we go there to Chicago and prove out game. It doesn’t matter who’s playing, the three points in more important.
