Good Game

Aguirre Highlighted The Good Game

Diego Aguirre indicated after the match against Cerrito, which culminated in a 4-0 victory, that Peñarol played “a good match, just like against Cerro.”

“We found the way to goals again and got a very clear difference,” added La Fiera.

The coach highlighted “the desire that the team put in” and pointed out that “playing like this, it is difficult for Peñarol to lose.”

Diego Aguirre did not save praise for Cerrito and indicated that “they planned the game very well, they played in good form, I liked it a lot, but at one point they were overcome.”

Likewise, the Peñarol coach could not hide the difference made by the goal scored by Sergio Leal 18 seconds into the game. “I also thought we were going to be calmer, because in the first half we didn’t create more than a couple more goal situations and the first part of the game was very even,” said the former scorer.

Aguirre said that it is important that “all the members of the establishment have their opportunity and within the possible use all the changes”.

On the other hand, the coach said that “victories reassure and it was what we needed so that everything goes the normal way that everything should go. What happens is that in previous games we had also played well, but they wanted us to believe that it was all wrong, and it wasn’t. You have to be calm and as the team found the goals, everything was going to go well.

Finally, Aguirre said that he does not consider winning the championship in such a strong way. “We must think game after game, win and then see if it gives us to stay with the first tournament of the year. This is very even and anyone can get points from you. If we play like against Cerro or Cerrito, it makes a difference,” he explained the coach of Peñarol.


Sometimes It Helps To Win Anyway

Diego Aguirre finally relaxed tensions at the end of the game against Rentistas.

After a 2-0 victory against América de México, but which also did not help the team to qualify for the second round of the Copa Libertadores, that first half against Rentistas had arrived, which culminated in a 1-0 defeat.

“Against Rentistas we managed quite well the first half and we could not take advantage of the scoring opportunities. On the contrary, they had theirs and went to the half-time won,” Diego Aguirre began by saying.

“Luckily the draw came, since we were all getting a little nervous. People were also anxious and those things had an impact on the team,” added the coach of Peñarol.

About the feeling with which he left the stadium, the Peñarol coach was very clear: “You had to win, and that was the first thing. We had just been left out of the Libertadores and the team needed to win.”

Aguirre added that “the first half was acceptable, because there were no setbacks and we controlled the game quite a bit. In the second half I think we went to the front more out of desire than anything else.”

For Aguirre that old axiom that it is useful to win in any way is valid.

“At any time, winning always works. If you win all the games in any way, in the end you are the champion. Sometimes even getting wins like this Sunday are also very good for the group. When the team has a mental response to overcome the bad moment of the game at a disadvantage and a very hard week works. Because there were 20 minutes left and we were losing, “added the coach.
