Sounders boss reacts to Club Leon defeat

    Seattle Sounders head coach Brian Schmetzer has admitted that his team took their 3-2 loss against Liga MX outfit Club Leon in the Leagues Cup final pretty hard, given it was their first ever international final.

    The Sounders had taken the lead on Wednesday through Cristian Roldan’s 48th minute effort, but three goals in 24 minutes for Club Leon rendered Nicolas Benezet’s injury-time goal inconsequential.

    Speaking to reporters, Schemetzer said things could have been very different had a couple of key moments worked out differently, and noted his players had struggled to come to terms with losing.

    “Even watching some of the film was not easy because of the emotional drain of being this close to winning that game,” Schmetzer said. “A couple of key moments would have changed the game. It was hard for them to watch. But they’re not afraid of that, because they understand that’s how they learn.”

    Despite the result, Schmetzer believes it can be an advantage.
