– Press Conference –
What happened to Julian Quinones who was not part of the game?
He said he was not 100% ready to play and asked for understanding not to participate during that period.
Did Olympia play at the Olympic Stadium in San Pedro Sula impress you?
Not impressed, it was a football game that didn’t go our way, it was for Olympia, we didn’t do a good job, they took their chances and got the result Olympia deserved.
Do you think the key was defined after the 4-1 against Olimpia?
We didn’t expect this result, the key is open, if they can do it at home, I don’t see why they can’t do it at home, so hope is not dead, everything is still at stake, it’s 50% of the series and we have another to fight.
What happened to Atlas in the second half of the game?
We came to play a game that wasn’t given to us, we came from a possession game, we circulated the ball, we didn’t find the right spaces, we didn’t have confidence, we found ourselves with an early goal down. Our speed. However, in the second half, obviously, we were a bit exposed at times due to our desire to score a second goal, the speed, power of the Olympians made us suffer and they were effective.
Lessons left over from this game and how to prepare for Phase II?
Each game teaches you many lessons. For the next key, for the second leg, we have to think about what we should do and what we can do. Think mainly about the Liga MX match against Lyon, we have to win, there is no other way to win, many lessons are now abundant when reviewing the actions of the game.
Is his continuity in doubt after poor results in the league?
No, with the board we haven’t touched on that issue, they know what’s on their mind and I dedicate myself to coaching the boys every day.
