New York Red Bulls head coach Jesse Marsch spoke to the media before his team takes on the Houston Dynamo on Saturday. Here's what he had to say…
- Marsch said the Red Bulls need to stay aggressive in their game plan, despite losing the first two games and are yet to score a goal.
- He hopes that Gonzalo Veron plays well on Saturday, because he opens up the midfield and helps take the pressure off Bradley Wright-Phillips.
- Marsch hopes that Veron and Wright-Phillips prove "to be a handful" for opposing defenses.
- The Red Bulls can't continue to "give games away."
- "We've made a lot of mistakes and that's cost us. We have to find a way to eliminate that and we have to allow ourselves to grow throughout the season to become the team we know we can become."
- The upcoming bye may be good for the Red Bulls, but only if they go into it off a win.
- He expects Houston to be "very dangerous."
- He used three adjectives when describing the Dynamo team: Grittiness, competitiveness and explosiveness.
