There might have been many unpleasant words used by LA Galaxy fans to describe their 4-0 defeat to rivals San Jose Earthquakes at home on Wednesday night. However, for LA Galaxy head coach Guillermo Barros Schelotto, there was only one word to describe their defeat and that was “frustration”.
“I think more than ever today, it was frustration,” the head coach said when asked to compare the match to other recent losses in which the team appeared more disheartened. “San Jose managed the ball in the field from the first moments and we couldn’t figure out why.”
He noted that while he’d emphasized each player’s responsibility before the match, “There was frustration as we got more down in the second half. It’s not good for me as a coach to see that.”
The result leaves LA Galaxy at the bottom of the MLS Western Conference table and leaves them with little to no chance of getting a playoff spot this year. There is definitely improvement needed from Schelotto’s side after just 4 wins in their 16 games played.
Galaxy defender Daniel Steres also seemed frustrated after the game saying their performance “wasn’t good from the start” and that they “didn’t play well”.
