Liberators Cup: “We knew we would have two months full of games, we got ready, but starting to play is what we like best. We got used to it, it’s not a new experience. We had a difficult group, we have to play with rivals. away and we are happy with the group “.
Point names: “Paulo and Juanfer are in a good mood. Sad for not reaching the goals, but when they came in that’s all, change the chip and make himself available to the team.

It seems to me that beyond the design, the operation is what matters most and if we are convinced of how we want to play, the designs are Secondary. As soon as we play with this idea, we feel more comfortable. There are always mistakes and in the position of being a tall team, with deep balls, they had a chance. There was not a good pressure on the player who has the ball It can make us suffer, we have to fix it. But then we defended ourselves with the ball, in addition to winning, we bet on the attack as the River fan likes and for this we need courage and we take risks “.
The continuation and the replacement: “We have eight matches a month: even if our group is even, we are fine. Apart from those who do not play in the Cup, the others will be at the same pace. And if I have the possibility that the group will add the tickets and the structure it doesn’t suffer, it will get better. Change what is right and necessary so that they are on the same page. “
