The Montreal Impact suffered a setback of 1 to 0 in the curtain raiser of the tournament “MLS is Back”, on Thursday, and his sporting director, Olivier Renard, admits he would have liked to see more of some of the players of the workforce.
In the interview on the television show Salut, Bonjour weekend on the TVA network, Saturday morning, Fox has acknowledged that the performance on the part of some athletes was not optimal in the face of the Revolution in New England.
“I believe that there are only two or three players who have reached their level, he estimated. The rest was below it and it is for this that we suffered. It should also be said that the opponent was good.”
“A little jerk”
Fox recalled that it was a month of July little ordinary for the club. The pandemic has previously slowed down the activities of the Impact and the head coach, Thierry Henry, has done the best he could to prepare his players in this context is unprecedented.
“The virus, and this pause of several months have completely stopped the work carried out, has recognized the Fox. We managed to put something in place and delivery against the New England we put a small stop. It is necessary to continue. It is a small jolt, but it is necessary to recover from it.”
Acquisitions in view?
The period of the mercato is closed, the options of Fox are limited to finding talent, currently. But he warned that he will not hesitate to improve its training, if necessary, when the time comes.
“After the tournament in Orlando, the period will open again. And it is true that we will look to improve the team, does he let you know. As I said to my arrival, the work should be done on the long-term. There are players that have long-term contracts. One must assume these contracts and trust in the current group. But if we can make acquisitions to strengthen the workforce, we will.”
The Impact will be crossing the iron with the Toronto FC next Wednesday. This match, which will be presented on TVA Sports, is the perfect meeting-place for the club is over, believes Fox.
“We must respond to the following the latest delivery”, he concluded.
