No Opponent Is Easy.- Salcedo

SAN NICOLÁS DE LOS GARZA, March 14th.- On paper, the media view Querétaro as a weak opponent, but that is definitely not true, according to Carlos Salcedo, who even rated the Gallos Blancos as dangerous.

“An opponent is dangerous when there’s a new manager, because you always want to perform well to stay in the team and not be put on the transfer list, so that makes a team more dangerous than they look on paper. Right now, we know that no opponent is easy,” he said.

The Mexican international defender addressed the media in today’s press conference and stressed that the idea is to finish with a win this weekend, before the FIFA Calendar.

“I think how we finish before the FIFA Calendar will be important, so we can go feeling at ease and knowing that we’re doing things right.”

The opponent’s manager…

“He has a lot of experience, knows the team well because of his work with this team, and we need to be able to figure that out and that’s what we train for every day.”

The draw in the Derby…

“Very happy and really satisfied with the result we obtained, which keeps us in the running to qualify. Very grateful to the supporters who attended and took the time to go to the stadium.”

Call up to the Mexico Team…

“Happy, it’s the best for any player of any nationality to represent their country. It implies starting a new process from scratch. What I did in the process implemented by Profe Osorio, to whom I will always be grateful for everything he did for me, is in the past and now I need to focus on this new process.”

His integration into the group…

“I’m really happy with my teammates for everything they’ve done for me, for making me feel so welcome from the very first day I arrived, the directors, “Tuca”, Miguel Ángel Garza, everyone has contributed to helping Carlos Salcedo to integrate faster than expected.”

Hunger for doing things right…

“Of course, everyone always has a hunger to do new things…now I have to do things right here and I’m really very happy about it.”

Possibility of a local City Derby in the CONCACAF Champions League Final…

“It would be amazing to be able to offer that to the state of Nuevo León, it would give the final another flavor, so I think that each and every one of us, from both teams, will be giving our all in the semifinals to bring that trophy home to the city of Monterrey.”
