THIERRY HENRY

"We are obviously sad to be out. We beat a team that didn't lose in a very long time, but we didn't score the second goal. I'm proud of my team. We didn't train for two weeks, guys were missing, and we performed. They tried and they battled. When I arrived in Montreal, I said that this team was going to fight and try to play. And we did against everyone. We have to keep on doing that, but better."

AMAR SEJDIC

"Moments like this you need to review the game and learn from. At the end of the day, the focus is on next season. Preparation is key. Tonight, we created chance after chance and we were in their half. At the end of the day, you can't say that we didn't leave it all there. It's a weird feeling because after the MLS playoffs we had the two weeks quarantine and one week to prepare for this game. Unfortunately, a few things didn't go our way. You can take an optimistic point of view and say that there's a good foundation to build on for 2021."
