Below are a few translated excerpts from Ferreira's interview:
On his feeling since returning in early July...
"I feel good. I’m getting better little by little and I’m trying to get back to a higher level where I will be able to help the team return to our objective of making the playoffs."
On turning the season around for FC Dallas...
"It’s really a matter of developing a good soccer team. We have gotten better the last couple of games but we know that we can’t afford to lose more points at home. That is the objective."
On Colombian players in MLS...
"I believe it’s important. The Colombian players that have passed through the league have left a name. Because of this, MLS teams have collected many Colombian players. We hope that more will come."
