  • What They're Saying: Matias Almeyda

    "First and foremost, blood runs through my veins. I characterized myself for having blood and not water. The injustices give me issues and frustrate me, especially when there is no dialog. I simply complained about the penalty and why the other play was not a penalty in our favor. [on a Jordan Harvey handball]. I questioned a yellow card on one of their players [LAFC's] that committed four fouls and then Godoy [Anibal] received a yellow after one or two fouls. I simply want to receive fair treatment, no better, no less, but with respect. I don't know why I was ejected, I am not sure what the fourth official must have told the referee, but I did not disrespect anyone. After I was ejected, I lost my temper, and I am making a public apology for my reaction but those who know me knows that I have always reacted like this, especially when there are injustices."

    -- Matias Almeyda, the San Jose Earthquakes' Argentine head coach, on being ejected in the first half of the Quakes' 4-0 loss at LAFC and then pleading his case, initially refusing to leave the field, and then returning from the tunnel to further let the refereeing crew know his feelings.
