Jason Kreis says RSL can only point the finger at themselves.
After a 2-0 loss to Seattle Sounders on Friday night, which cost Real Salt Lake their position at the top of the Western Conference, boss Jason Kreis admitted his side were simply outplayed.
Goals from Obafemi Martins and Lemar Neagle scored the goals that put Sounders at the summit of the league, with Real Salt Lake now a point behind but with two games in hand.
Speaking to MLSsoccer.com, RSL Coach Jason Kreim admitted his side weren’t good enough and that Martins’ early goal was influential in costing them the match.
“What I would like to see our players do differently [is] to handle the situation differently. Obviously to give up a goal three minutes in that started with a throw-in is not good enough for us…not good enough.
“Whenever you give away a goal in front of 60,000 people, with a very good team like that, you are going to be in for a difficult night. I think for the most part it was a difficult night. I honestly think we got out-competed.”
Kreis also felt that the international break didn’t do his side any favours either, with several players looking out of sync.
“I think it played a factor. I think it contributed to some sloppy performances, a little bit loose with the ball, a little bit lackadaisical in our efforts.”
