“First of all, thank and try to manage emotions, which is something that we always ask of footballers. If there are words that identify this tremendous institution have to do with emotions with passion, I will try to control them, I cannot assure you. Thank you for the honor of being here, when the president spoke of some coaches who have been here, the floor moves. I am sitting in a place that has a lot of history, a lot of glory, not only locally but also internationally. We are talking about a giant, a team with a tremendous history worldwide, it is my responsibility to be in charge of the technical leadership of the first team. On the one hand it is an honor, I thank the board of directors in the person of its president Ignacio Ruglio, the technical and sports area. To Pablo Bengoechea, I don’t forget that he is a successful colleague and a glory of this club. I value it and I celebrate it.”, Highlighted Mauricio Larriera in his first words as coach of Peñarol.
“Today will be the beginning of a dream. People who have known me since I was born, know that it is so. It means a great responsibility that will not lead to paralyzing me. Although there is emotion and responsibility, we will have a great team. This is teamwork in a club that has professionalized certain areas that is very important. Celebrate this moment that is historical for me personally. Hopefully this is the beginning of a little more history, little more history than this club already has, where hopefully in the end we all open up, all the Peñarol people to celebrate. Here there are no grays, it is black or white and glory is the final goal”, He sentenced.
“I am looking forward to having the first chat with the players. Although this team is wide, it has a lot of versatility, referent players, positive leaders. Guys with very good projection. We are going to face it with our co-workers as we have always done. With the difference that we are a giant. It’s going to be a really short talk because there is little time. I’m looking forward to that day, talk and go to work ”.
“This tournament is about an emergency plan. We start 0 to 0 and we have to go through the Clausura to force finals. We have to be more practical, the parties are defined in the areas. In a short time we have to get to know each other very quickly. With the hierarchy that the squad has, there will also be a quality of play. Here there is a winning mentality that also responds to the values of this institution. Be pragmatic, go win and force those finals to seek the championship. The squad is very extensive, this squad has a lot of versatility to play in many ways. We know the squad and we have had some players. It is a very rich establishment ”.
“The quality of players we have on offense excites me a lot, but you don’t have to radicalize. The games today are defined by the duels. We have footballers who have these characteristics, but first we are going to have to appeal to teamwork. This is not only remitted inside the field, it covers much more. I also wanted to highlight that ”.

“I was surprised by the conversation I had with Pablo Bengoechea. I also like to know why I could be a candidate. He makes me an idol of this club to carry out this process honors me. I am very excited about the quality of players we have. For this reason, the objective of the club cannot be another. The time is little, the hierarchy of the establishment is much, what remains is to work. It’s a tremendous challenge, I need that pressure otherwise I couldn’t be here. I feel that I am prepared, well armored, well accompanied ”.
“When I was a boy I was a fan of Peñarol, I watched the goals of Fernando Morena, the dribbles of Ruben Paz who was my idol as a child. When one becomes a professional footballer, that goes away. The club that excites me is Peñarol. The fans are won with result, seriously. Without selling smoke I say so. “
