On the performance of the team:

“I thought they were excellent. I think they stuck to the game plan, I think the game plan worked. For me the target was to convince them what I asked them to do is going to help them enjoy on the pitch and win football games and it’s going to make our fans enjoy. I think we could see that tonight. Obviously, there are certian names that will get the highlights, that’s the way football is, but the team was outstanding. The week of work reflected today what we’ve been doing. I said the other day in the press conference, I was really pleased with the effort from everyone. I think the commitment and attitude from everyone today was outstanding.”

On the team’s performance over the whole 90 minutes:

“I think that’s the kind of team performance that we’ve been looking forover the past two weeks that we haven’t got. Obviously, getting the win is really important for us, especially after the loss to Orlando last week and tying the week before that. I think for me, Juan has come in and he’s implemented a lot of new things and for us as a group it was a lot to take on this week. I think it shows out there tonight that we’ve listened, we’ve put in the work, and we’ve come out with a 4-1 win because of that.

On the win and how the team performed:

“I thought that was just a huge team win. From the first minute you could tell that we came to play. We had a game plan we wanted to execute and I thought did their role so well and you could just tell from the very beginning that we wanted to win this game and we weren’t going to walk away with anything but three points. It was just an amazing team effort tonight, from Ebony getting her hat-trick, it was just all-around a great team performance.”
