Web Exclusive: Nick Rimando's Career Highlights
Nick Rimando talks about his personal career highlights.
SHAUNA LAKE: What has it been like for you to be a player there and what are some of the highlights of your career thus far?
NICK RIMANDO: I think the highlights; the first thing that comes to mind is winning the championship in 2009. It was a rough road to get there. I came here when I think Real was just a name. We didn’t have an identity, a style of play. Jason Kreis took over and really revamped the team picked his players, had the right attitudes and we made it work in 2009.
SHAUNA LAKE: What did it feel like in that moment?
NICK RIMANDO: It felt great. I don’t know if there’s really any words that any champion can bring to words. When you’re there, in the moment, when you weren’t supposed to win. When the Galaxy had all the money, all the big players, all the fans I think were against you and we did something I don’t think anybody thought we could do and so I wasn’t prepared, I knew we could do it, but I wasn’t prepared to celebrate. I was only thinking about the game and focused on the game so after the game it was a great feeling.
