“I’m not saying we deserved to win, but we didn’t deserve to lose. It was an even game, with few situations in both goals”. Nestor Raul Gorosito evaluated the defeat around the time of Gymnastics and Fencing against Central Córdoba in Santiago del Estero. He spoke with enough balance, without dramatizing the result, which left Lobo without the top of the Professional League.
“We failed not to play shorter, in the second half we did better. Now we have to know how not to rush the last pass, keep calm with the ball, look for more alternative passes,” was the coach’s self-criticism.
“They had practically not reached us. That way they generated superiority for us, but except for Martínez’s shot we did not suffer situations. We defended very close to our goal and the idea was to play further away because if not every time they cut you they stay close” explained Pipo .
“21 points are missing, that’s a lot. The next game (NdeR: against Aldosivi, on Monday) we have to win. We are calm, two points behind Atlético Tucumán. Today (Tuesday) we could get rid of a small group, by winning we got two games out of Boca… Not having won is what hurts me the most in that sense, but what we have to do from now on doesn’t change. There is a short championship of seven games. We have already gone 12 games without losing, we hope to have the ability to play well,” Gorosito said.
“It wasn’t one of the worst games, I don’t agree with what they say. We weren’t excellent, but we didn’t deserve to lose. We were bad against Arsenal,” he assured.
In addition, he commented on the mobilization of fans: about three thousand triperos in La Plata. “We are more than happy with the people, we feel the constant support, it happened in the Argentine Cup, in Chaco. So it goes without saying that the squad is grateful, we have to continue together until the end, we do not lose the illusion of fighting what maximum,” said Pipo.
