MOST COMMENTED

In the wake of Rafa Marquez's stellar stint as a centerback in last Sunday’s 3-2 win over archrival D.C. United, captain Thierry Henry said his friend and fellow Red Bull star is misunderstood.

“Something that people didn’t mention after the game against D.C. When Rafa plays at the back, it’s another story,” Henry said today. “I know a lot of the (fans and writers) don’t like him too much, but watch the game. ...

“Rafa is the boss, for me. He just showed it. You’ve got to respect that. Things happen on the field sometime, to me, a lot of players. But I invite people to watch the game that he played on Sunday. People didn’t talk a lot about it. ...  I think people misunderstand Rafa sometimes. He’s a great person, he’s a competitor like I can be sometimes you can go over the edge but he’s a great guy. I hope people understand how valuable he is for us.”

Marquez has picked up nine yellow cards and served three suspensions since last season’s playoffs.
