Puebla arrives as a victim to the playoffs, recognizes Poblete


Puebla is preparing for the play-off against Monterrey in search of qualifying for the League of the Guard1anes 2020 tournament. In this regard, the Director of Sports Development of the team, Carlos Poblete, confessed that the Nuevo León team will be a complicated rival, since the current champions of Mexican soccer are one of the strongest teams in the entire continent.

We know that we are not the favorites, that’s what the numbers say at the end of the tournament. And if we also make a comparison of teams, Monterrey is one of the most powerful in America, not only in Mexico, “said the former Chilean soccer player.

Poblete added that although they do not start as favorites against Rayados, the team will go out to give everything to qualify for the ‘Big Party’ and added that, although they are not considered the “black horse” of the tournament, the whole of La Franja has a chance of winning.

We consider ourselves one more participant or candidate for the title. If you want to be a champion you must win all the keys you play. Obviously we are less favorites than other teams, we go as ‘victims’ to Monterrey but football has many surprises, “said the Puebla manager.

Further, Poblete made self-criticism and pointed out that the team was very irregular during the tournament, although he clarified that the objective of qualifying for the repechage was met. On the other hand, the ‘Buffalo’ said that they will use the FIFA date to recover mostly all the players who have been out due to injury or Coronavirus in order to face Rayados.

On the continuity of Juan Reynoso at the head of the Angelopolis team for the next tournament, the group will assess a final decision once they finish their participation in this contest.
