Luis Zubeldia spoke at a press conference after Lanús’ agonizing qualification against San Pablo in the South American CONMEBOL and stated: “Without a doubt, we left everything. Everything we had we left on the court ”.
“It had been a long time since I saw a team stand up like Lanús did in the first half. That cost us in the second half. We put in some players to oxygenate the team, but the domain was theirs. What happened in the second half was their virtue and what happened in the first half was our virtue ”, added the DT.
“This has to be the way, adjusting some little things, but not letting this escape,” said Zubeldia about what he expects from his followers.
The Garnet coach pointed out the importance of the achievement by the rival and the place where it was achieved: “The series was very even. They had dominance in the end, we delivered everything in the first half. This is very important for us. Winning on this field doesn’t always happen and we did it with authority, against a team like San Pablo ”.
In addition, he expressed that they have little time to celebrate and should already focus on participating in the Professional League Cup. “We can celebrate a bit, but we already have to think about workshops and the squad and some changes will start to come into play.”
“This is a triumph for the squad and for all those who made power from a distance. This is a team that is based on sacrifice and humility, with many guys from the club. We want to enjoy it with everyone ”, closed the DT very happy.
