  • What They're Saying

    "In soccer, in life, you learn along the way to deal with things that are difficult. You learn to deal with things that don't go your way or that are difficult for people close to you. This is no different. It's part of the game. Nobody would have expected [Bob] to be here for 20 years, and you know that going in. I think my dad more than anybody realized that, and was committed to working as hard as he could and doing whatever he could to help the national team while he was here. The day they decided it was best to go in another direction, so be it. He's confident with the work he put into it, and now, on our end, it's been good and exciting coming in."
