"During Wednesday’s match with Real Salt Lake, while caught up in the emotion of trying to help my team win, I made some poor decisions that I regret. For that, I want to apologize to my teammates and coaches, the club and the fans. I am working to adapt to this league and its culture. I understand that there are high expectations of me and I’m a competitive person. With that, I want the responsibility of being the player my team and the fans can count on  when we need a goal. I think this team can be successful and believe I can contribute to that success. I pledge to work hard to achieve it and to earn the support of our passionate fans."
