NYCFC head coach Patrick Vieira spoke to the media on Thursday, before his team takes on the New England Revolution on Saturday.
Here's what he had to say…
- Regarding national team callups, the best option for MLS teams is to have depth. He's seen a good week at practice with players fighting to get into his starting XI.
- He needs depth due to the callups.
- He blamed their slow start against Orlando on their mental approach to the game. He said the team didn't have the right concentration or focus.
- The goals they've conceded this season have been due to NYCFC mistakes more than anything else, he said.
- They plan to organize some games during their bye week for players who haven't played much.
