Sporting Kansas City Manager Peter Vermes on Sapong
“He is an extremely explosive and powerful forward who can play with his back to the goal. He has an excellent attitude. He is very mature and one of those kids who will find his way in the league very quickly. We think CJ is a very good fit for us… We think that not only right away he can have some impact for the team but we think over time he’s got a huge upside.” (Jan. 13, MLS Superdraft) “His progression has been very good. He’s very coachable. He learns very fast and he has a real ambition to be successful. You put all those things together, and with his athleticism, it can be a dangerous combination.” (March 11, when Sapong officially signed with SKC) “He had a monster game. He was dangerous, had the ball a lot, he was just very good for us.” (March 20 after season-opening win over Chivas USA)
CJ Sapong on Signing Day
“I was so excited when I heard my name. I kind of got flustered with emotions for a little bit.” “I am built for this, I am ready. I can’t wait for that first time I step on the field and I know I am going to have to prove myself. I have had to do it until now and this is just more motivation to try even harder.” “I am a flashy, outgoing person, and fun-loving. You are going to see I am having fun on field. I have fun with life. No matter what situations I come across I make the best out of them. I know God has a path for me, and I have faith that whatever the path may be I will be successful if I just keep believing.”
