(on the game overall) "It definitely went very well for us. From the beginning, we had a lot of intensity. We were focused. We put pressure on them and we created options. So, it was good. It was good for us. Despite missing the PK, the mentality was high and they continued attacking and putting pressure. They continued winning the ball in the middle, which was very positive for us. And then, the players, little by little, were creating options and we scored good goals, especially in the second half. We could've scored more goals, definitely. But it was a very solid game for us, in front of one of the top teams in MLS, so it's important to continue believing in what we've been doing. We're not the best team in MLS when we win, but we're not the worst team in MLS when we lose. We still have a lot of room for improvement in a lot of aspects of the game. We know that we have to grow, but we also know that we have good and positive things to enjoy, to try to explore. Not only here at home, but hopefully when we have away games.”
(on FW Mauro Manotas embracing him after he scored, and Manotas bouncing back from missing the penalty kick) "He's a young player. Despite what he is, he's 21 years-old. And he's Colombian. I'm Colombian, too. And when he missed the penalty, I said, ‘Not a problem.’ At halftime I said, ‘Not a problem. Just continue, it's going to come.’ At some point it's going to come because he's a top scorer. I think he was happy, excited and he wanted to celebrate with me or another with another fan. And in that moment, I'm a fan. The only thing is that I'm a little bit closer than everyone else, but I'm a fan, so I enjoyed it. I enjoyed every goal that we scored and every opportunity that we created because I see the stadium, I see the people, the fans, happy. That makes us excited and happy to continue doing the job that we've been doing."
(on why the team has been so successful at home) "We have a team with players who are always looking to score goals, to attack. We have speed and we have guys with attacking mentalities. You see that. They know that, and I want them to do that. For us, we want the players to do what they do best. That is important. Today we didn't have (FW) Erick (Torres), but we had (FW) Mauro (Manotas). And on some days we didn't have (FW) Romell (Quioto), but then we had (FW) Andrew Wenger or we had (FW) Vicente Sanchez, so we have possibilities. We have to continue believing in what we have and they have good skills to be dangerous. And working together, game by game, we can improve the solidness of our midfield and of course, the defense. We know that it's been improving, especially at home. The last two games, we haven't conceded a goal."
(on his game plan against Orlando and whether the game plan led to the shutout) "Well, from the beginning, we knew that they're very good with the ball. That they're a very good team, overall, on all lines – goalkeeper, defense, they've been very solid in the middle, and attacking-wise, they're very dangerous. But, we focused on ourselves. We focused and I said to the guys, ‘Let's go. If we do what we have to do as a team, we'll face any team in MLS without a problem. And, don't go on the field thinking individually. Let's go on the field working as a team, and as a team, no matter what happens, we're going to be fine.’ And they did a good job."
(on why he went back to the 4-3-3 lineup) "The players were ready. (FW) Romell (Quioto) was ready to play 90 minutes, and we needed to go back to the 4-3-3 here at home. That was the plan against Orlando. It was necessary to go 4-3-3 today and they responded well."
