The technical director of America club, Santiago Solari, has spoken at a press conference with the focus on the start of the new Clausura 2022 contest. The Eagles begin the tournament with a confrontation against Puebla On matchday 1. However, for the coach it is not the expected start. The Covid-19 pandemic and the increase in contagion is causing problems in the different teams, due to the losses caused and the poor performance.
And it is that the Eagles have suffered important exits in this transfer market and not all positions have been reinforced. Solari add newcomers to the list of unavailable players Diego Valdes Y Jonathan dos Santos, since neither of them has a chance to play yet, they haven’t even trained with the rest of the squad.
“We are excited about the year that begins, but we are short of supplies at the beginning of the year. We have to compensate with our desire and competitiveness. There have been five sports casualties of players who were last semester, we have seven casualties for health reasons. They joined Valdes Y Jonathan, but neither of them has a chance to participate yet. We will seek to compensate with competitiveness, but it is not the most comfortable start for us ”, commented the strategist at the press conference.
The arrival of reinforcements is complicated for America. The coach leaves everything on the sports directive. Despite the difficulties, it seems that some of the negotiations with the player of Necaxa, Alejandro Zendejas. So far we will have to wait and the team that the technical director has is incomplete, but he assumes that he has to adapt and have patience to face the tournament.
“We arm ourselves with patience and we know that we all want the best, as a coach my role is to try to advise or point out weaknesses or virtues and then there are things that exceed our scope of competence, knowing that there is a harmony with the president, with the Board of Directors, with everyone, and that everyone wants the best for the club, although those things are not simple and are more difficult than what you want, “said the technical director.
The America visit to Puebla On day 1. The meeting is on Friday, January 7 at 9:00 p.m. Central Mexico and will be broadcast on the TV Azteca channel.
