New York City captain James Sands got into it with some of the team’s fans earlier this week.
After losing to Cincinnati 3-1 on Wednesday, the New York City African has been 0-5-1 in its last six games, and fans could hear it making their way off the field.
One fan shouted to Sands that their performance “wasn’t good enough”, while another fan told him he’d been with the team through “weather and worse” but their play “wasn’t enough”.
This fan told him to “do something about it” as the captain, speaking for fans who are “sick and tired” of losing efforts.
“Don’t you think we come every day and work for the King?” Rodriguez asked a fan.
Another fan exclaimed, “We don’t feel it bro!”
Warning: explicit language
Rodriguez replied, “Hi, Hi! Listen… I’ll tell you something now. Everyone who works in this field hurts more than you. It’s a fact, okay! Do you think anyone is happy with that?
“Just listen, listen to me. Nobody there is happy with this. We the king work, okay? “
“Seven games, bro,” one fan replied, referring to the team’s losing streak.
Rodriguez kept sharing.
“Listen, last year, how many games in a row?”
The fan didn’t move, as Rodriguez continued, “The year we won the cup, how many games?”
The fan said he’s been following Rodriguez since his “Academy” days, and Rodriguez warned, “It’s disrespectful to everyone when you talk like that.”
As security tried to get the fan to stop him, he and Rodriguez shook hands, but Rodriguez again said, “Don’t say we don’t care, okay? Because this is disrespectful to the king.”
