Anthony Hudson Blames Travel for Loss against Montreal Impact
Colorado Rapids’ poor run continued with the team losing against Montreal Impact. The team has been unable to pick up form even after recently registering back-to-back victories. Montreal Impact were excellent from the word go and they had 70% possession in the match. This dominance on the ball led to Montreal creating a large number of chances and they were able to open up a 2-0 lead quite early in the match. Even though Anthony Hudson tried to make an impact by bringing on Dominique Badji, who did score a goal in the game, it was not enough for Colorado.
Hudson is coming under intense pressure due to a bad set of results. The manager claims that his team wanted to have more of the ball in the second half but a few mistakes made by his players kept them on the back foot. Meanwhile, Montreal Impact claimed that they do not want to rest on the recent set of results and want to continue the progress. Rapid are going through one of the worst campaigns in terms of results and statistics. Hudson has already come in with a lot of excuses and he is running on the same. His latest excuse after the game against Montreal was the excessive travel for the team.
“I think coming in at half-time, there was no major danger. I think we started to grow into the game with the ball. And we wanted to do that in the second half even more – to have more possession. And when a couple of mistakes like that happen, it really puts you on the back foot and they have some very good players. I think we need to get over this week. We’ve probably spent more time in airports than on the training pitch,” said Hudson after the game.
