Benny Feilhaber was clearly not very happy during Sporting KC’s 1-0 loss to the Seattle Sounders, at one point picking up a yellow card for going after referee Ismail Elfath and then going after him again at the final whistle.
By the time reporters got to the locker room, though, he had calmed down. Of course, that didn’t stop him from giving what has to be the most sarcastic interview in MLS history. Or maybe he was just being super honest. We’re not entirely sure.
“No I was wrong,” he said. “It was obviously a correct call. They got the throw in so Alonso kicked it right off of me. A clean tackle, obviously. I was definitely wrong in asking for a yellow card on that play.
“I think we can blame nobody but ourselves for not getting the win. The linesman were superb, they kept their flag up when (Matt) Besler was offside and kept their flag down when (Nelson) Valdez was clearly onside so we have no one to blame but ourselves. We didn’t put up a good performance. We needed to play better. It’s disappointing from that aspect, but the better team won tonight.”
