Pareja’s Perspective Sets Tone for 2020 Season

Oscar Pareja prefers to look at all things – soccer, driving to work, life – with the glass half full.

Asked at the club’s Media Day press conference what he’d say to hopeful supporters in 2020, Orlando City’s head coach posed another question. “Do you expect your day to be good, or do you expect your day to be rotten?”

“Many people just choose the other one,” he said. “‘Ah, here we go again, it’s traffic, so it’s a bad day. It’s gray, what a bad day.’ And I like gray sometimes! And sometimes when it’s so sunny, and people say ‘oh it’s too hot, it’s wrong, it’s a bad day.
