The Seattle Sounders made historical past in 2022 as the primary MLS group to win the Concacaf Champions League, however their failure to make the Playoffs nonetheless left a bitter style for some.

“This group is sweet sufficient to win each MLS and the Champions League in the identical 12 months,” Rusnak stated (through the Seattle Instances). “That’s sports activities, you realize, it didn’t occur for us in MLS. Since we received Champions League, we by no means appeared the identical — as assured, as collectively like we did within the Champions League (however) one out of two trophies will not be the worst.”

Such are the requirements set by Seattle – who made the MLS Cup ultimate in 4 of the six seasons previous to this one, successful the title twice – simply making the Playoffs is not sufficient to search out satisfaction.

This can be a membership that expects success in each competitors, each single 12 months. No matter whether or not or not the Rave Inexperienced had been a part of the post-season shuffle, it is the failure to achieve one other MLS Cup showdown that grates most.

“I don’t have a look at it as making Playoffs. I have a look at it as going to MLS Cup,” stated Rusnak, who notched 4 objectives and one help throughout his first season with the Sounders.

“You make Playoffs and exit within the first spherical, nice. You made Playoffs and your season was 4 days longer. Congratulations. However on the finish of the day, you’ve carried out nothing.

“Making Playoffs is step one to have the ability to play in MLS Cup after which to win it. We haven’t carried out that, so we’re upset and no matter critique we get from the followers and the individuals contained in the soccer membership, it’s deserved, and we now have to simply accept that as gamers.”
