Sigi Schmid says that Seattle Sounders are only a few inches away from getting back to winning ways.
The club has lost its opening three matches of the 2016 MLS campaign. The disastrous start means that Seattle Sounders are bottom of the Western Conference table. It is a position that few would have imagined to see Seattle in. Schmid has been successful when it comes to MLS over the years. He claims that the results are only result of poor confidence, but he has seen signs that the players are finally recovering.
The club are up against Montréal Impact in the next game and it could not have come at a much was time for Seattle Sounders. The opposition have made a good start to the season and currently top the Eastern conference table. Going up against a team inform is going to require the best performance from Seattle Sounders in order to get anything close to 3 points. Belief and confidence are the two key things that Seattle Sounders are lacking right now according to Sigi Schmid. The club needs to start winning matches soon or risk the possibility of seeing other teams put a substantial distance between them in the table.
Western Conference leaders Sporting Kansas City already have a nine-point advantage over Seattle Sounders.“Sometimes we get hung up on stats, like how many shots we had. Shots don’t necessarily equate chances. We think we’ve been inches away from some very good chances. More than points, you want a happier confidence and more belief. The guys believe in what we’re doing. It’s a matter of us knowing that the process is working and just making sure that we get some confidence,” said the Seattle manager.Schmid also confirmed that Brad Evans was making good progress from the injury.
