Victories and classification will soon arrive.- Rafael Sobis

SAN NICOLÁS DE LOS GARZA | Friday, March 18, 2016.- At Tigres, we are aware that the 2016 Winter Tournament (Clausura) is entering the most complicated stage in which the teams’ classification to the playoffs is defined, and Rafael Sobis, forward for the Tigres UANL club, hopes they will soon see positive results, because they are creating goal opportunities and it’s just a matter of time for them to be realized.

“We are coming to an extremely important part of the tournament, when many things are defined, and we, comparing this season with the last one when we were champions, have just once point less, so things aren’t as complicated as many people are saying, but we are trying to improve. We will soon reach a better level, the one we are used to, and, consequently, the victories and the points will soon arrive and, as a result, we will be in the playoffs (Liguilla)”, explained the Brazilian.

Sobis talked openly to the media at the Universitario Stadium and clarified that the result of the América match was misleading because of the number of goals, although he pointed out that they deserved better results in the matches against Pumas and Rayados.

“We won the game against América 4-1, which was rather misleading; we know it wasn’t a 4-1 match. Then there were two games in which we did deserve victory and perhaps with a large goal difference. We didn’t have a good match against Querétaro, we are aware of that, we know that it was possibly our worst game of the season and even so we drew.

“We have to continue to improve; I think that even when we win, we have to continue to improve and strive for perfection, which is impossible, but the team is going to grow in the upcoming game,” he said.

The forward said that with the team’s injuries, this is the ideal moment for all the players who form part of the squad to show their worth and help to achieve positive results.

Rafa also asked the Mexican League referees to be stricter in their indications every week, because, with Tigres’ style of play, their opponents sometimes foul too often and are not given a card, prioritizing complaints over aggression.
