Colorado Rapids championship-winning captain Pablo Mastroeni has spoken highly of the pride and passion at the club.

The Commerce City outfit took out the 2010 MLS Cup against the odds and it was because of their willingness to play for each other that got the job done according to the Argentine midfielder.

“It’s been a long time and the one thing that’s stayed true since I got here is the passion and the pride,” Mastroeni said.

“We’ve committed to getting things right, to doing things ourselves, and when I say ourselves I mean all of us, because it takes a group, it takes a belief, it takes a community to win this.”

Rapids head coach Gary Smith echoed Mastroeni’s sentiments: “Honestly, I’m extremely proud to be part of such a wonderful group of people. To celebrate it with a bunch of guys that you’ve had a tremendous year with is awesome.”
