For the second consecutive year, the Peruvian coach Juan Reynoso will direct to Blue Cross in Liga MX with the illusion of repeating the success achieved in the first half of 2021. For this new short championship, however, the DT was honest about the state in which his team arrives at the start of the Grita México Clausura 2022 Tournament.
“I would sell smoke if I said that on Saturday the best Cruz Azul will be seen when the players have integrated little by little, but we know that the work and the ambition of the boys will accelerate the process, “he said at a press conference. For this new course, the Machine registers up to six casualties compared to the squad it had last season, although it has also incorporated several reinforcements.
“They will see a different team, but – to reach the fullness – it will take training, games and thinking about the game by game. For the second game, against Juárez, we will have more variants, “said the strategist.
Regarding the two challenges he will have in 2022 (to win again in the league and win the Concachampions), Reynoso considered that it will be very difficult to put together a different team to compete in each tournament. “For two teams, we are going to have to use imagination. It does not give to make two teams, I do not say it as a pretext because that in Cruz Azul does not exist, “he said.
The first match of the celestial team in the Mexican league will take place this Saturday, January 8, against Xolos de Tijuana at the Azteca Stadium. The people from the capital stayed in the repechage round to the quarterfinals of the most recent edition of their domestic tournament.
