The poor participation of the Mexican clubs in the Leagues Cup is still fresh. The big teams of the Liga MX fell surprisingly One of them was the Chivas de Guadalajara, a club that reached the final of the last Aztec tournament and currently leads the League MX. The soccer player Isaac Brizuela gave his impressions on the failure of the Sacred Flock.
Despite the fact that coach Veljko Paunovic recommended putting the failure of the Leagues Cup behind us, footballers like Brizuela are beginning to give their impressions of Chivas' participation. The player from Rebano Sagrado mentioned some of the club's mistakes that were paid for dearly in the international cup.
“We stopped doing a lot of things against the teams that beat us, they pass us over, Cincinnati scores us two goals starting, we didn't have the finishes or a finish that generated four touches and we didn't deserve to go up the scoreboard, we left to do many things. You have to recognize when someone is better than you and in our group it was like that”, said the midfielder in an interview with TUDN.
Chivas de Guadalajara left the Leagues Cup with two defeats in as many games. In the debut, the Sacred Flock was easily beaten by Cincinnati 1-3 and then edged out by Sporting Kansas City 1-0. The latter was able to beat the Mexican team without the support of their top attacking piece, Alan Pulido.
“The team has to get used to victory and with the mentality that everything was a final, to represent Well, Chivas, after the Chivas team is the closest thing. We leave a bad taste in our mouths for the fans and there are a lot of foreigners. Let's see what these Chivas are for and we didn't pass the test, we didn't know how to play, we don't have to make excuses”, he declared.
Chivas, turn the page
Despite the tough defeat in the Leagues Cup, Chivas de Guadalajara have a tournament ahead of them to vindicate themselves and show that the previous final was not a matter of luck. El Rebano Sagrado began the MX League with three victories in three games and Brizuela believes that the club must resume that winning blood of the past.
“We were excited about an international tournament, we saw some solid Chivas and it was a good blow, you have to say things as they are. The early goals were like a slap in the face of 'let's see, the tournament has started', to be forgotten, we leave a lot to be desired, as Veljko said, that it serves as a learning opportunity for us and to resume the good pace and not for being in the first place of your tournament is not going to be great,” he added.
