"I’m very proud, we can speak about the process that makes me proud, we can speak about every single player in my dressing room, they live the professional football life. We make so many steps in so many directions, we could speak a long time in which areas we make the right improvements, but I think you can see the peak of the iceberg outside, but we know here inside what we did in the last few months and in the last season that we have right now a powerful team. They can play power play, they can change results, they are ready for more. On the same time, I will say this again, we are a very very young group and we cannot expect always a young group like that they can go constantly and deliver every week. We have big goals, we have a big vision this season, but we are realistic, humble, we work very hard every day, and then we hope right now and I feel right now that we can win also our home games in a similar direction to what we did away." -Head Coach Gerhard Struber.
Head coach Gerhard Struber is pleased with the progress his New York Red Bulls team has been making and believes they're "on a different level" compared to last season. The Red Bulls have made the MLS Cup Playoffs for 12 consecutive seasons but struggled to get across the line last season, scraping in as the Eastern Conference's seventh-best team.
"The statistics show me and everyone that we are on the right way with our progress, everyone knows we have a young group, a new young group with some new players and today, I think we show from the first second many good moments. We create a lot of chances in both halves and especially, our way of football against the ball to find together the right triggers to press, to find the right intensity in the right moment. I think the setup was good in many directions. We have also the key players in our hand from San Jose and from this direction, I would say a very good game with many good moments, the one or other learnings, but I am very happy with the win in many ways."
Right off the bat, Gerhard Struber wanted to make sure everyone was on the same page. A realistic page, that is. The Red Bulls manager, entering his second full season in charge, stressed that his team is not yet ready to emerge as a serious threat in the Eastern Conference, despite surging to a playoff appearance last season. Instead, he suggested more of a rebuilding year, around the team’s youth, was in order.

The New York Red Bulls lost on Saturday, another one-goal loss in 2021 for Head Coach Gerhard Struber's side. "In the end, I think we have to find more control in this game, and we lose too much the control," Struber said. "We have not always the momentum in our hands. It switched in the first half and second half and it was very difficult today and we realize the team from Montréal are very good, especially on the ground, to play very quick with some very good key players. But I think we control many times the game, but in the second half, we lose the momentum too much. We find not always good distances together, and I think this was more the big reason that we cannot bring points home."
