We are going to put our heart and soul into Sunday’s match.- Viniegra

SAN NICOLÁS DE LOS GARZA | Thursday, March 17, 2016.- Tigres has two plans in mind for this Sunday: the first is to put their heart and soul into the match and, the second, is to achieve a positive result that will put an end to their three-game goal drought, affirmed Manuel Viniegra, a midfielder for the felines.

“It’s such an incentive for us (that so many followers are traveling to Puebla), with the situation we are going through and to see so much support from our fans offers extra motivation, and we would like them to know that we will be putting our heart and soul into getting a good result on Sunday.

“I have the greatest confidence in our players; (not scoring) is the whole team’s fault, not just the forwards’ and I am sure that our goalless streak will end in this next match,” commented Tigres’ reserve player.

‘Kito’, as Viniegra is known, claimed that, despite not scoring for three consecutive games, there are no signs of alarm in the heart of the team, because they have been creating goal opportunities and just need to get the ball into the net.

He also mentioned that the absences owing to injuries are the result of the intensity of their game and daily training, and reiterated that the injured players’ substitutes have been doing a good job.

“It is well known that Tigres has a very large squad, there’s no cause for alarm at all; there are players who are doing what is expected of them in the absence of their injured teammates.

“Moreover, (the injuries have happened) because I think that Tigres is an inherently aggressive team and, consequently, so are the players. We endeavor to do our best in every training session, match, or whatever, and I think that’s the reason why there are several injuries,” he explained.

Finally, he praised the work of this Sunday’s opponent in the League, describing them as a dynamic, complicated and dangerous team, so the match in the Cuauhtémoc Stadium will in no way be easy.
