WASHINGTON, DC.- El técnico Ben Olsen y los jugadores del D.C. United dijeron estar muy decepcionados por la derrota que sufrieron en el RFK ante el San José Earthquakes con tres goles de Steven Lenhart.

“Es muy decepcionante la forma como manejamos esta partido hoy. Lucimos como un equipo de jóvenes inexpertos. Esto va seguir sucediendo, nosotros siempre lo hemos dicho. Los jóvenes cometen errores y yo puedo aceptar eso pero el compromiso y la aptitud que mostramos hoy, o que no mostramos de ninguna manera, es inaceptable”, dijo Olsen después del partido.

Head Coach Ben Olsen

Overall thoughts on the game
It was very disappointing; we looked like young kids. This is going to happen, we have always said that we are going to have games when young kids make mistakes – that I can live with. But the lack of commitment at times was unacceptable. I think we started reading our own press a little bit, everybody thought we were on a roll, so now we don’t have to do what got us a little success – and it’s a little success. We are in the middle of the table if you take this whole league.
