DALLAS (105.3 The Fan) - FC Dallas head coach Luchi Gonzalez joined the K&C Masterpiece for the first time following his club's removal from the 'MLS is Back' tournament. 

"There's no time to feel bad for myself. It's a situation that's difficult. I think not being in the tournament because we realized it was going to be too late to get proper training to compete the right way," Gonzalez said. "It wasn't because of a lack of a roster, believe it or not. This team has depth. We actually still had numbers and a team to compete very well. It was just a matter of training days and the opportunity to prepare. I think definitely the right decision was made." 

Major League Soccer elected to pull FC Dallas from the competition in Orlando after a total of ten players and one coach had tested positive for the coronavirus since arriving at Walt Disney World.
