Nick Rimando: Face of Franchise
Nick Rimando talks about his role in the Real Salt Lake franchise.
SHAUNA LAKE: What do you feel like being kind of the face of Real? Like one of the stars in a sport that isn’t really supposed to have stars. There’s supposed to be more of a team feeling and you’ve really come out as being one of the faces of the franchise?
NICK RIMANDO: I think that comes from the work from all the guys around me really. I can’t just sit here and say, Nick Rimando won the game; Nick Rimando made the save to win the game. It’s a team effort still and that’s one of the mottos for our team – “Our Team is a Star.” It’s good that I get recognition and everybody else gets recognition, but I play for Real Salt Lake, I play for my family. The name on the back and the front of my jersey.
