Kreis responds to Saborio incident

MOST COMMENTED

Real Salt Lake coach Jason Kreis lashed out at D.C. United forward Charlie Davies for earning a penalty kick by what Kreis perceived to be a dive. Last weekend, Real Salt Lake beat San Jose, 4-0, after getting its first goal on a penalty kick after Alvaro Saborio went down in the box in what the Quakes players claimed was a dive.

Randy Davis got Kreis' response: "The truth of the matter is that I think that Sabo embellished it. And as I said at that time, I’m not a fan of that.

“I was very clear in my feelings about Charlie Davies here, so I’ve already talked to Sabo a little bit about it in a little bit of a more unorganized fashion, and I plan to speak with him again because he does know that I was clear in my scathing remarks about Charlie Davies’ play. ...

“Players need to have their team get points so that their coach keeps job stability and so that they can have a little stability. Let’s face it -- we’re professionals and we want to keep our jobs, and we want to be able to buy something for our wife and feed our kids. It’s not clear-cut at all. As I said of the Davies incident at the time -- it’s all well and good to get mad at Charlie Davies about the situation, but you expect the referee to get it right."
