Quote of the week: Jim Gabarra

Posted on 30 March 2009 by ASN Staff

“From my experience, the level of play was better than that of the WUSA inaugural game.”–Washington Freedom head coach Jim Gabarra on the Women’s Professional Soccer inaugural, played Sunday at Home Depot Center in Carson, Calif. The Los Angeles Sol defeated Washington 2-0.

Gabarra should know about the subject, having coached the prior incarnation of the Freedom in the 2001 WUSA opener. Those Freedom won that game, 1-0 over the Bay Area CyberRays in front of 34,148 at Washington, D.C.’s RFK Stadium. Hopefully that’s a good sign for the nascent WPS.
