“I’ve been in several locker rooms and I’ve worked with many coaches, but here it’s not just about what the coach says. We put a lot of emphasis on the collective aspect and it’s huge, ”summarized Kei Kamara, Wednesday.

“What we have done in away games is the best proof of that. It shows how much we can stick together in the face of adversity,” added the veteran who is on his eighth team in MLS.

« It’s the best locker room I’ve known in my career and it’s passed on to the field, » said Samuel Piette, who also played in Germany and Spain.


There is a sense of community, of the collective which is very strong within this young group.

« I felt something different coming into that locker room, » Kamara said. Generally, everyone loves each other, but it gets stuck from time to time, but it hasn’t stuck between us yet and that’s why we fight so much for each other. »

Piette supports his point by making a connection with what he experiences when he evolves for the national team of Canada.

“In the national team, we talk about brotherhood and I think we have it here. All the players are very close to each other. I’m not saying we have dinner together every night, but every morning we’re happy to see each other and we’re happy to work. »


There is also an obvious combativeness within this workforce which never throws in the towel.

« We have a great strength of character and I think we showed it during the game in Toronto, » assured Piette, emphasizing the feat achieved on Sunday when the team made up for a deficit of two goals to score. four in a row.

« When you’re down 2-0 after seven minutes, it takes a united group to get back on the scoreboard like that on the outside, against Toronto. »

“It is not because we know success that we sit on our laurels”, continued the combative midfielder.
