“But if you go with the 12 clubs that follow, the difference is minimal and with winning two games they get involved, for me it is a mediocre tournament. It should be sought that there is more competition, that there is more football,” he said.

In addition, the former sky-blue soccer player used the Cruz Azul Machine as an example to point out that at this point that he already has the classification, he tends to lower his guard at the most transcendental moment of the season.

“A team that qualified so early usually tends to slacken, and at that moment the work of a coach is essential,” he said.
