Juan Cruz Real did not leave sad or disappointed after Junior from Barranquilla lost 2-0 in his visit to Atlético Bucaramanga and will be last in group A in the semifinal home runs of the BetPlay I-2022 League.
In Barranquilla the fans demand self-criticism from their coach. And just that was missing in his statements after the defeat. Eye, Junior adds a point in two dates, and next Saturday he receives Millonarios at the Metropolitan Stadium.
Cruz Real said that his team “deserved more than what it got” and that “the team’s performance is not bad, it is costing us to be effective.”
“We congratulate Bucaramanga. It is costing us a lot to finish the plays, we failed in the last pass and final shot. The rival does not arrive as many times and is penalizing us”, added the DT of the shark.
The Argentine strategist continued: “I think that even before the match with Unión, many praised the performance of the team and these players. Many spoke that it was the team that played the best. This is football, the first one hit us a lot (Cop Sudamericana) from which we were obviously hurt by the illusion we had. After that blow we wanted to win, but we couldn’t. We lacked efficiency, I don’t think the team’s performance is bad”.
“The last thing they are going to expect from me is criticism of my players. We definitely needed to win. The reality is that we had to add and we did not. The attitude of the players is not. With the adverse result they sought to turn the score around. In the analysis of the game we were wrong and not successful in the auction”, added the coach.
