Giovanni Savarese rebuilds Portland Timbers after 6-2 defeat

Portland Timbers head coach Giovanni Savarese admitted to reaching a low point after the 6-2 defeat against rivals Seattle Sounders on August 15, forcing the team to internalize before slipping away from a playoff position. 

Since that night, the Timbers managed to find their voice and win three out of their last five away matches. They’re 3-1-1 stretch inspired an upward trajectory on the Western Conference table at a crucial point in the season. 

“We did a lot of work, we had a lot of conversations,” head coach Giovanni Savarese said. “We felt we went a little bit away from who we are and we needed to make sure that each player understood back again their role. In those conversations and the work on the field, we built up again who we are.

“It starts first with the morale, with the environment, as you said, and believing that we had to bounce back from the game against Seattle, which still was always inside us. That became a motivation for us to make sure that we were better. But in that process, there was a lot of work on the field that we needed to do and we see now the effect of that work.”

The 2021 season has been especially difficult for the Timbers as they navigate through several substantial injuries that have altered the roster.
