The coach was critical of his players after losing to Monterrey in Toluca
Hernán Cristante, technical director of Toluca, did not hesitate to say that he was “ashamed” of this Sunday’s game against Monterrey. and that he did not see a team that left everything on the court, because at times it looked like a “little shell”.
“It was not a good match. Today I am angry. I spoke to the guys and I’m embarrassed because they didn’t play well. I’m ashamed, not the result, but you don’t see a team delivered. That hurts me, ”he said at a press conference at the end of the game.
“What worries me is the performance, the reading. In the second half it looked like a shell and I can’t allow it. I spoke to the boys. The last game had nothing to say to them. I don’t like this feeling, ”added the Devils helmsman.
He even made it clear that he will not allow more games with attitudes like today, since he takes great care of the image of the club so that it is marked by a game in which the elements do not show claw.
“It is my responsibility and I am not going to allow the Toluca jersey to be embarrassed like that. In a heads up against Monterrey we could not at any time, but neither as a team. That hurts. We do not have the individualities to play hand in hand and if we stop playing as a team we lose the essence “, he clarified.
Finally, admitted that his players can compete at the highest level and ruled out that today some do not have enough level to be in Liga MXHe also stressed that the team’s game model involves teamwork.
“To compete, everyone has shown that they can. I discard that. We have a form and a pattern. If we want to play with individual efforts, it is not enough for us. When we stop working as a team we lose our strength. I can’t let it do what it wants. The boys were talking. It is a competitive team, but collectively ”, he concluded.
