Miguel Angel Ramirez hails Charlotte FC ahead of Seattle Sounders match

Charlotte FC faces the Seattle Sounders in week 14 of the 2022 Major League Soccer campaign, and the Eastern Conference side is determined to make the trip count. 

Head coach Miguel Angel Ramirez admitted the expansion team will not be intimidated by the 2022 Concacaf Champions League winners, but instead wants a fight for the three points.

“I’m not taking a plane for almost six hours to just fight for a point,” Ramirez said during a Friday press conference. 

“If I go there, it’s because I want the three points. If not, I stay here. I never wake up in the morning thinking maybe on Sunday we get a point. I don’t have this mentality. I always go for three points. And if not I don’t make my job.”

And after their mid-week US Open Cup victory against the New York Red Bulls, Charlotte FC’s confidence remains high. The team knocked out their opponent in the competition’s Round of 16, cementing themselves as a true contender.
