Philadelphia Union stars hoping for much improved April

Philadelphia Union have endured a dreadful start to the new MLS season in the Eastern Conference after drawing two and losing two of their opening four games.

Those results have certainly intensified the pressure ahead of April’s fixtures, and Union players are aware that they have to turn things around.

Andrew Wenger and Sebastien LeToux spoke to MLSsoccer.com about their disappointment of their poor start to the season.

Wenger stated: “We’re not pleased with where we’re at.

“You can probably look at it and say we’ve had a month of weird things happen that it normally might take a full season to see, but we’ve also had some poor performances. And that’s the thing that we can control.”

While teammate Le Toux added: “We’re disappointed about March, for sure.

“We’d like to start April in a new way. It’s a new month, so we can kind of wash out what happened and start fresh, starting this week against Sporting Kansas City.”

Head coach Jim Curtin is under pressure to get results already but said “the mentality is still good in the group” and he will be hoping to pick up a first win away at Sporting Park on Sunday night.
