ZUAZUA | Wednesday, January 25, 2017.- Tigres are taking it easy. They know that the victory against América was important and has given them a breathing space. However, the universitarios’ left back, Jorge Torres Nilo, is aware that they need to take things one step at a time because there is still room for improvement before the team can be perceived as solid.
“It’s important. Luckily, we’re coming off the back of a victory at home, but we are aware that there are a few things we need to work on, which is what we’ve been doing this week. I’m confident that as the days and fixtures go by, you’ll see an improved Tigres. We won, it was a good match, but we know there’s still room for improvement. We’ll be taking it match by match, this time it’s Jaguares and this is what we want (for the team to improve), that’s the aim of our training sessions, to perform better than the previous Saturday,” commented ‘Pechu’.
The match against Jaguares is going to be very complicated.
“I think it will be a complicated match. We’ve been analyzing Chiapas’ last game and it’s a very well-organized, very keen team, and it certainly won’t be easy. I’ve heard people commenting the opposite, but quite frankly it’s not true. They’ve just defeated their hosts Toluca, on a difficult, high-altitude pitch, where they arrived, were methodical, achieved a positive result, so, no, it won’t be easy. We’re working pretty hard to ensure that we come home with the three points we need.”
We can’t say that the Champion is back yet.
“No, I’m sure we’ve all got the same mentality that there are still things that need more work. It’s important to carry on producing these results because our first goal is the Playoffs, but we know that there are things that need correcting and we hope that, as the days and fixtures go by, we’ll be back at a level that meets everyone’s expectations.”
In this team, no one is untouchable.
“Ultimately, no one is untouchable, in any position. ‘Tuca’, together with the institution, is always assessing what’s best for the team and, as players, we have to give our all on the pitch so they can confidently make the best decision. It’s all about improving and that’s what ‘Tuca’ and the directors have achieved over the past few years.”.
