FC Cincinnati’s Costa Rica star Allan Cruz Embraces Challenges Ahead

Dean Perretta: Allan, what are your overall thoughts on FC Cincinnati’s season so far?

Allan Cruz: I think we were all going on the right path when the games started. After that, we had a bit of a trip. We’ve lost some games. But thanks to God, we were able to win last Saturday. We hope we are on the right path now.

Dean PerrettaCan you describe the intensity levels and demands of training and how the sessions this week have refreshed perspectives of the entire team moving forward?

Allan Cruz: You can see there is much more intensity. We’re having longer training sessions. We’ve adapted well to the coach (Yoann Damet). We’ve talked amongst us that we have to be calm. We have to have more possession of the ball. We can’t just knock it around. I think that has been very beneficial for us.
