Jim Curtin has been unveiled as new interim coach for Philadelphia Union.
The former Chicago Fire defender admits he wants to bring a steelier approach to their play.
â€śGood teams win 1-0 games in this league,â€ť Curtin said. â€śThe teams that do that at the end of the year are the teams that are toward the top of the table â€“ the Kansas Citys, the Salt Lakes. They grind out 1-0 results and theyâ€™re good in both boxes.
â€śThe toughest thing is that there hasnâ€™t been continuity,â€ť Curtin said. â€śWeâ€™ve played different guys and whether it was injuries or different situations that had come up, we havenâ€™t had a four that has been playing together. And thatâ€™s what it takes. You have to play with each other game in and game out to get used to each other and have a chance.
"The idea would be to pick a four and go with them â€“ not have it be that weâ€™re juggling game to game.â€ť
Curtin named Mike Sorber as his assistant manager and Chris Albright as the new technical director.
