MEXICO CITY ( Associated Press) – Despite a five-match win, Puma’s sporting vice president Miguel Mejia Baron came out against rumors and speculation on Friday, saying Argentine coach Andrés Lilini is firm in his work, and denied To that the club is obliged to give Dani Alves minutes.
The University students lost a two-goal lead the day before and lost 3–2 to San Luis and extended their streak of winless games in Liga MX to four since Brazilian star Alves with the club. start up.
Additionally, Pumas were defeated 6–0 by Barcelona in a friendly for the Joan Gamper Trophy.
Mejia Barron admitted, “The result we got in Barcelona was a tremendous setback that has resulted.” “This led to rumours, instability and doubts that what could happen to Lillini and what is going to happen that she stays for the entire tournament is a total decision on the part of the university board.”
Some fans and analysts have openly questioned Lillien’s ability to manage a team that has more names for this tournament than before. The strategist took over the team after working with the Pumas youth team and had already managed to get them to the league finals and the CONCACAF finals, which had a more modest squad than the current team.
Ironically, the tournament has been more complicated for the Pumas, who have barely scored a win and are 15th out of 18 teams in the highest tier with eight points.
These are poor numbers, after ending years of leadership austerity and deciding to sign more recognized players, including Argentina’s Eduardo “Toto” Salvio, who came from Boca Juniors and Alves from Barcelona.
“It is a group with six members and it is not easy to reconcile, but it takes time and sometimes it is not,” the leader said.
Alves, the most successful player in history, decided to sign with Pumas for a shoot that was no longer in Spain. He aims to be in optimum physical and football shape for the 2022 Qatar World Cup.
Since coming to Mexico, he has played every minute in the four Liga MX games he has played, despite the fact that sometimes, especially in the second half, he stops touring.
This sparked rumors in the Mexican press about a clause in Alves’ deal that requires Lillini to field him.
“The bad moment happened with the arrival of Alves and gave rise to those simple conjectures and they are good ideas to enter into controversy because it sells, but no professional would lend themselves to such nonsense. This one Sounds like a joke, but since I know it’s not, I tell them they can testify that it’s not true,” the leader said.
The Capitals team, one of Mexico’s four most popular teams, attempts to break the title drought to date Clausura 2011.
To try, he has to improve in the second half of the tournament to get into the league for the title and Mejia Barron knows there is no time to give up.
The Pumas will face Santos next Sunday at the capital’s Olympic Stadium, which they urgently need to end their bad moment.
“The word crisis doesn’t scare me, if to do it should happen naturally because being in distress in any activity is part of the challenges that life gives you as an individual and as groups, the pits in life and There are crises, said Mejia Baron. “Today we are in danger, discontented and distressed, but believe we have mature people to come out of it.”
