Rimando on winning Save of the Year: I have "to thank Nat Borchers"

By Sam Stejskal

By now you probably know that Real Salt Lake goalkeeper Nick Rimando took home the 2012 MLS Save of the Year for his acrobatic stop on Kansas City forward Kei Kamara in RSL's April 14 game at Sporting.

What you might've missed, however, was Rimando lightheartedly ripping on teammate Nat Borchers when reacting to the honor, thanking his teammate "for losing his man and allowing me to make the save for this year’s award.”

Of course, Nick was only kidding around with Nat. Just gives us all a little window into the fun atmosphere the guys have in the locker room. 

Nick's full quote is below: 

“Saves are never planned but when you have a chance to help your team it feels great,” Rimando said. “It’s always an honor to be recognized. I also have to thank RSL DF Nat Borchers for losing his man and allowing me to make the save for this year’s award.”
