[Jozy Altidore speaks about advice he’d give his 16-year-old self when he started as a professional footballer] To enjoy it more. When you’re young sometimes a lot of things get put your way and you forget it’s a game and you’re supposed to have fun. Sometimes too quickly it became a job and I didn’t know how to balance everything. That’s probably what I would say to a young Jozy

[Jozy Altidore talks about rising star Christian Pulisic] Christian’s got the sauce man. Everything’s special about him. I think in any country he’s someone people are excited about. He’s fit. He’s fearless. I think he has all the makings to be a special player. The challenge for him, for us, for everybody is to keep pushing him. It’s easy when everyone’s telling you how great you are, but you have to make sure he knows there’s a long way to go, but I think he knows that. He comes across as a really bright kid, comes from a good family. I’m not worried.

I’m thrilled, I’m thrilled for her. She’s worked really hard to get back to where she is right now. I couldn’t be happier. My mom. My mom told me in the stands. It’s good for her. We’ve been friends for a long time and to see her progress as she has it’s a great sight to see

[Jozy Altidore says about his process regaining fitness] It’s hard for a final, injured or not, to pass it up. They only come around so few times in life to play in games and win a trophy so I’m going to give everything I have to make sure I’m helping these guys out

[Jozy Altidore states his injured quad is healing, but it is still unclear whether he will be ready to take on the Sounders at CenturyLink Field] I haven’t played any soccer in a month, so that’s where I’m at. I’m trying to jog, I’m trying to change pace, I’m trying to do those types of things. But like I said, I have to let the muscle heal first or else you put yourself at risk. I’m not tell you no false truths or nothing like that, I’m actually being very candid. That’s where I am. I’m not happy about it, but it is what it is

[Seattle coach Brian Schmetzer and even Toronto FC manager Greg Vanney have told the media in recent days that they expect the American forward to play in some capacity] I don’t know. I don’t know. I still have to progress. It sounds silly but there’s still things like kicking the ball that I have to do that with this type of injury is tricky. I’m trying my very best, I’m doing everything I can, and we’re all hoping, I’m hoping, to obviously play some sort of part in the game
