The Atlético Nacional coach reacted after the 4-1 defeat against América. Hot press conference.
Brazilian coach William Amaral experienced a tense moment this Saturday at the post-match press conference in which América de Cali defeated Atlético Nacional 4-1 in matchday 14 of the BetPlay Dimayor II-2023 League.
The Purslane coach accepted that the defeat was “a very hard blow for us, the rival has overtaken us, we have not shown the behavior we had planned and we have to accept the defeat.”
“To be competitive you have to have intensity, passively that’s impossible, tonight we weren’t competitive,” admitted the coach.
Journalist Juan Pablo Erazo asked Amaral if he was thinking about making his position available since he lost important games against rivals such as Racing Club (in the Copa Libertadores) or a league game against Millonarios, Medellín and América.
Amaral laughed and said, “We need to be more serious and have more quality,” criticizing the question. Then he replied: “A few hours before this game we were first in the table; In the last three games we have taken seven points out of nine… How do you ask me a question like that? I think we should act more seriously and responsibly. This is a serious project that everyone is committed to moving forward. We should ensure a little more quality in the questions. “People should be informed, and that’s called disinformation.”
Amaral analyzed the game: “We could have scored the four goals they scored, but it wasn’t possible. Despite a few chances to score, we had a very poor first half. The funny thing is that we scored seven goals and they scored 13, and each team got on goal 6 times, but they scored 4 goals and we scored 1. That’s the data.”
“The chances were there and we didn’t take advantage of them, the opponent took advantage of them and they were superior to us. This is a painful defeat for everyone,” the Brazilian added.
