In an interview after the 1-1 draw, Gordon said the game was one Toronto should have won, “especially against a team like Chivas, that’ll probably be somewhere around the bottom of the West”.
When asked about Gordon’s dig at his former teammates, Nagamura sighed.
“To be honest, I was really disappointed because he was a guy who spent the whole preseason with us,” he said. “Just a few weeks ago he was part of our team; he was one of us. So to hear from his mouth, him saying that we’re going to finish in the bottom of the West, that’s very disappointing.”
I think it’s pretty poor form for any person on any team to say something like that about another team. Yes, you always have teams who are not strong, or are rebuilding and are going to be “bottom feeders” but that doesn’t mean you diss them like that. Especially when your team is also in the same state of rebuild.
