After making his debut in the Liga Mx Femenil with a win (2-0) against Necaxa, Carlos Roberto Pérez, coach of Cruz Azul, said he was very excited about his team, since he has assimilated his football idea very quickly.
“We are very happy and calm with the beginning of this process, I see the young women very committed, quickly adopting the new game idea and we are very happy with their response, as they fulfilled 70 percent of everything that was asked of them in the court.
The game left us very good feelings, I liked the performance and evolution of some players, how they developed, especially because the working time was very short. Of course there is still much to improve, but I liked the intention of having control of the ball, of going to look for all the games, which is a situation that we will also be working on at the mental level, he declared yesterday in a virtual conference.
The celeste coach was the only new coach in the women’s league to make his debut in the Guardianes 2021 tournament with a victory, which, he said, left him quite satisfied, especially since it is the first time he has ventured into women’s soccer.
I’m very proud, I followed the women’s team a lot because we trained almost on par, I was directing Cruz Azul Hidalgo, and we also played at the same venue. Now that I am fully engaged, I can say that it is a very pleasant experience, he commented.
After playing her first duel, she acknowledged that the women’s competition “has improved a lot in all aspects, both physical, technical, tactical and psychological. It is not such an easy League, it is very complicated, there is a lot of competition and every day it rises higher.
For example, our first rival, Necaxa, pressured us very well in the second half, and that speaks of a response from the opposing team, and that is only done by the prepared squads.
On date two, the celestial will be measured this Thursday against the León club, a team against which, the helmsman warned, we should not trust ourselves despite the fact that they lost in their debut and also new technical director.
