“This is not football”: Carles Gil irate after New England lose wintry match to Real Salt Lake

Published

on


Would the result have changed Gil’s opinion? Not quite, he contends.

“If we finish the game 2-0, I say here the same,” the 29-year-old Spaniard said. “It’s not football, it’s impossible to play like this. Congratulations for Real Salt Lake because they are amazing playing, you know. But I don’t understand why we play today like we play. We lose one game because we lose a game, for us, for them, for the soccer, for the fans, for everything.”

Asked about Gil’s remarks in his postgame press conference, Revolution head coach and sporting director Bruce Arena didn’t quite go to that extreme on a game that required orange balls for visibility and proactive turf clearance to prevent snow buildup, especially in the first half.

“Games have been played in the snow, so I can’t argue that,” Arena said. “What do you take away from it? Probably you have to have better concentration at the end of the game and certainly on a day like today, there’s going to be mistakes made in the penalty area. And for us to have a combination of mistakes like that at the end of the game is inexcusable, but it certainly wasn’t a soccer game today. But, you know, both teams played under the same conditions, so give them credit.”
