Jim Curtin on the Champions League

Philadelphia Union head coach Jim Curtin feels the pressure ahead of the Concacaf Champions League semi-final match against Club America as the team battles to maintain the MLS playoff position in 2021.

The Union will be 2-0 aggregate deficit for the series second leg against Liga MX at Subaru Park on Wednesday. The American team collapsed during their first visit to the historic Estadio Azteca, which infuriated Curtin with the result.

Now the head coach admits his squad may not be great but welcomes the challenge ahead.

“I’ve been saying it all season, we’re a good team. We’re not a great team yet, ”said Curtin. “We all have to improve our level here, because here too people remember more than ever how to end the season and not how to begin.

“So we can still have a special year, we can still do special things, but we all have to do our best to make it. Our margin of error at our club is very low. I think we all know that.”
