Juan Manuel Azconzábal appeared before the press after the defeat suffered by Unión de Santa Fe against Emelec in the first leg of the second phase of CONMEBOL Sudamericana and he expressed himself somewhat disappointed by the 1-0 against the Ecuadorian team: “I did not like the result,” he emphasized.
The Tatengue team coach analyzed the fall of his team against the electrical team and assured that “Obviously I don’t like the result, we must improve, beyond the circumstances that this team is practically new and that it is the first official game. We will work for the results to occur and for the game to evolve ”.
However, the technical director of the Santa Fe team stressed that “To draw conclusions now quickly would be to emphasize that after so long, completing 90 minutes against an opponent with another shoot, with more games, made us competitive.”
When asked about the position occupied by Troyanski and Cabrera, Azconzábal indicated that “The idea of playing with Troyanski on the right is a tactical position and our first chance to score was in the circumstance that we thought could be given and we understood that we could have the Vera’s passage in that place ”.
On the other hand, he highlighted the lack of precision that his managers had in the final spaces: “I think that in general the team fulfilled most of the facets of the game, except in the definition where we did not have the necessary precision in the last meters . In the last 30 minutes with the modifications we tried to arrive, there were situations, some clearer than others, but obviously it did not reach us ”.
In closing, he was asked about a possible tactical change for the trip to Ecuador, to which the Basque was cautious in his statement: “We are going to see that and think that it is the most convenient, we today try in different ways and we precision was lacking ”.
