We are under an obligation to return to the Playoffs.- Jürgen Damm

SAN NICOLÁS DE LOS GARZA | Wednesday, March 30, 2016.- Jürgen Damm fully understands that the margin of error for Tigres in the 2016 Winter Tournament (Clausura) is now minimal, that they must achieve positive results as soon as possible, and, therefore, he is grateful that the team is ready physically to face the upcoming matches. However, he also asserted that, as the current champions, they are under an obligation to classify for the Playoffs.

The felines are going to have two difficult matches running – first they will host the Atlas Zorros in the Mexican League (Liga MX) at the Universitario Stadium with the objective of winning, scoring and improving their current 7th place in the General Table; then, on Tuesday, April 5, they have another decisive match, this time against Querétaro in the second leg of the Concacaf Champions League.

“We have to finish the tournament in the best possible way; we know that, as current champions, we are under an obligation to return to the Playoffs and go after the championship.

“We have to bear in mind that these two matches, against Atlas and Querétaro, are going to be a turning point for the following games. We have to earn the points and move up the Table and then, on Tuesday, triumph so we can play in another Final and aim for the Club World Cup,” said Tigres’ right winger.

Damm stated that he is pleased to be back at work with all the team after the muscle issues that kept him away for several games, so he is looking forward to being selected if that is what Ricardo Ferretti needs.
