Chivas USA battle to keep Preki

Chivas USA head coach Preki would have every right to cite injuries as a factor for his team's performances this season, but even after being eliminated by Real Salt Lake, he remained objective.

Chivas USA head coach Preki would have every right to cite injuries as a factor for his team's performances this season, but even after being eliminated by Real Salt Lake, he remained objective.

Preki said: "What are you going to do? We can't sit and cry. It was happening the whole year, it's happening in the postseason, but you know, the guys that played really gave everything. You can't discredit their commitment, effort. I thought we gave everything we had tonight, I was just a little bit disappointed with the way we came out in Salt Lake. If we had the same type of commitment in Salt Lake, we would not have lost this. Give them credit, they pushed the tempo a little bit more than us, they maybe wanted it a little more than us at home, and they got the result. And here, they got two goals."

With media suggesting Preki is on top of several MLS clubs wanted list, only time will tell if he is leading the red and white next year.
