Nevertheless, a very perplexed reporter was able to ask Acosta under the presumption that he represented Philadelphia Union, the team that LAFC would face in the MLS Cup.
What did the reporter ask?
“How thrilling is it to be in Philadelphia at this time?” He turned to a man who hadn’t visited Philadelphia in a while. “The Eagles are unbeaten, the Phillies are in the World Series, and you guys are competing in the MLS Cup. Has it truly sunk in?”
Acosta probably had every right to become irritated. After all, this was a news conference before the premier event in his league. Surely, it wasn’t unreasonable to request a little basic study. Instead, he attempted to provide the reporter with a way out. Acosta enquired whether the reporter was saying they are just playing a Philadelphia team.
However, the reporter did not stop there.
When given the chance to save himself, the reporter instead persisted by rephrasing his first query. However, someone finally stepped in to tell the reporter that Acosta truly plays for LAFC at this moment.
Then, with a smile, Acosta said that he does not play for Philly. He supposes it is thrilling for them. The Texan said that he is a Cowboys fan and does not like the Eagles. He knows that they are unbeaten so he thinks to shout out to the Eagles. He congratulated the Phillies for making the World Series. Moreover, they are playing the Union.
Acosta, who will probably travel to Qatar later this month to represent the United States in the World Cup, was very gracious in all of his remarks. The reporter at least got that detail correct. Check out Acosta’s reaction to the perplexed reporter.
