New York City FC coach Domenec Torrent wants to win the first three points of the season at Yankee Stadium.

New York City FC does not have many choices. Against the Montreal Impact, Domenec Torrent’s team must absolutely win. New York must redeem the 4-0 defeat against Toronto FC and will try to beat at the Yankee Stadium Montreal which will arrive in the Bronx after the 7-1 suffered by Sporting Kansas City.

NYCFC’s goal is to stand behind the last defeat and win three points that could give the whole team confidence. Domenec Torrent presented the game against Montreal Impact but took the first step back and returned to the Toronto defeat.

“I was probably wrong, choosing players who had traveled long distances and were tired. It was my mistake, I didn’t choose the right players. But the fault is mine alone.”

Torrent reiterated the concept by taking all the responsibility for the game lost in Toronto. On the other hand, the New York coach absolutely wants to win again and the goal is to get the victory at Yankee Stadium.

“We must fight, we must be compact and win all the duels. Only then will we be able to win. Our opponents can play even better than us, but we must play with energy, it will be a battle we will have to win also because we will play at Yankee Stadium.”

Torrent believes it, he believes in the team and knows that he can also rely on leaders like Alex Ring.

“He is a leader in the field but also in the locker room. It ‘s very important to work with these players, they are the leaders, Ring leads the team with his character and his determination. He is a true fighter”.

The main objective of Domenec Torrent is therefore to win. To succeed, the New York coach will rely not only on leaders like Ring but also on new ones, above all Hebèr who is available and Torrent will decide whether to play from the beginning or in the final minutes. There will be no Alexander Callens and Maxi Moralez both out due to injury.
