Wilfried Nancy praises CF Montreal for Canadian Championship win

    CF Montreal coach Wilfried Nancy believes his side’s Decision Day defeat to Orlando City inspired their 1-0 Canadian Championship final victory over Toronto FC.

    A 72nd-minute Romell Quioto strike was enough to decide Sunday’s showpiece, delivering silverware and a return to the Concacaf Champions League for Montreal in the process. That they did it against Canadian Classique rivals Toronto will only make the success taste that much sweeter.

    The mood at Saputo Stadium was far more jubilant than after the final whistle of their 2-0 loss to Orlando on the last day of the MLS regular season two weeks ago – a result that meant they missed out on the MLS Cup Playoffs,

    “The players deserved to make the playoffs,” Nancy said of their Decision Day collapse. “We were close but a little bit far because we didn’t manage the moment of the game well [against Orlando] and we need to learn about that. Hopefully, next year is going to be better.”

    But Nancy believes that “failure” was the key to Sunday’s success, teaching his side some valuable lessons in game management and dealing with adversity.
