What They're Saying: Joey Saputo

“You can’t go in with the attitude that we have no chance. We’re here. We didn’t expect to be here. Go out and enjoy the moment as best you can. I don’t need to put added pressure on the players. They understand the importance. Any moment after this is beyond historic. We have to go in with the attitude that it’s going to be tough. Look, the ball’s round and anything can happen."

-- Montreal Impact owner Joey Saputo on the message he gave to his coaches and players before they left Thursday afternoon for their trip to Mexico City for Wednesday's first leg of the Concacaf Champions League final against Club America. The superstitious Saputo won't travel to the game. Instead, he'll watch at home on television, like he did for last two away games. (Montreal Gazette)
