‘The lion doesn’t care about sheep’: USA stars brush off Lalas criticism

  • Player turned pundit had called USMNT players ‘soft, tattooed millionaires’
  • Christian Pulisic and Michael Bradley say words do not affect them

Two of USA’s most prominent players, Michael Bradley and Christian Pulisic, have brushed off an extraordinary attack from Alexi Lalas after the player turned pundit attacked the team’s struggles to qualify for the World Cup.

On Sunday, Lalas called the team ‘a bunch of soft, underperforming, tattooed millionaires’, as well as calling our players individually – including Bradley and Pulisic.

This was a defenders’ MLS Cup final and so it was fitting that a defender should strike the decisive blow. Roman Torres was already something of a cult figure for the Sounders support before he strode up to hit the most important penalty in the franchise’s history. Now the image of his celebrations will be immortalised in Seattle.

Of course, the narrative that will be drawn from this match seems a little bizarre considering that an entire season came down to a few inches, with Justin Morrow smashing his penalty off the underside of the crossbar just moments before Torres converted to give Seattle their first ever championship win.
