There are variations in this Tigres.- Nahuel Guzmán
SAN NICOLÁS DE LOS GARZA | Thursday, July 7, 2016.- The new players who have arrived at Tigres for the 2016 Summer Tournament (Apertura) will equip the team with more variation, making it a more talented squad with a better chance for success, is the viewpoint of Nahuel Guzmán, the felines’ goalkeeper. He added that the team’s current game base will be key to achieving this.
“We will undoubtedly see variations (for this tournament); there are new players who will contribute their quality and essence, who will contribute to a team that has a foundation in football, that has ideas for play, and, as I always say, some might prefer it and others not so much, but its seems that in the past couple of years there has been an idea for play that has produced results,” the goalie explained.
‘Patón’ praised the arrival of a man like Ismael Sosa, considering that ‘Chuco’, a forward, is one of the greatest revelations in Mexican football who has a great deal to offer on the attack, since he has the ability to play in a variety of positions.
“New players have arrived for this. A new forward who was a revelation in the last championship, ‘Chuco’ Sosa, who offers variation, since he can play as 9, on the right flank and on the left. His physical capacity is just amazing.
“‘Chaka’ (Rodríguez), who I hadn’t actually met before, can also play in different positions, on the side or in the center. Let’s hope that all the new men will offer the manager different tools and can contribute to Tigres in the same way as they did in their former clubs,” the Argentine expressed.
Finally, Guzmán indicated that in a team like Tigres the bar is always set very high regarding the expectations for each tournament or title it competes in and hopes that this essence will be repeated in the Apertura 2016.
“Ever since we were champions and maybe even before, when we’d had the possibility of competing against América in the Final, we knew that the level of expectation is at a maximum, regarding the effort made by the club to assure that we are comfortable, acquiring the players requested by the manager, we have that responsibility and we must fulfill it, take it on, the bar has been set very high. This Tigres has reached the finals in several recent championships, been in the top spots, endeavoring to be a competitive, highly respected team, and we cannot lower this standard. I hope we can stay on this path of Tigres being a protagonist,” visualized ‘Patón’.
