Antonio Mohamed, technical director of Pumas, does not consider that the auriazul squad has shown deficiencies in the rear after losing by a landslide against FC Juárez, because for the Argentine it was accidents of the game.
“There were two penalties, a shot from outside the area and a stopped ball, then our goalkeeper did not save any ball. They were very specific distractions that set the course of the match”, assured the University coach at a press conference at the end of the match.
“It’s not a defensive problem, it’s not that the team was outmatched in that way, on the contrary, I think the team was quite solid in that situation because we always played with numerical superiority at the back,” he added.
However, ‘Turco’ is not worried and is confident that his team will return to winning ways soon, as they have only won one of their last five games in all competitions.
“For us it is a blow, we have to get up and I repeat what I always say… The accounts are made at the end, not now,” he said.

THE SIGNING OF ANDRÉS MONTAÑO FOR THE PUMAS FELL
Despite the fact that the negotiations were going well with Mazatlán FC, the signing of Andrés Montaño by Pumas fell through, who until a couple of days ago was outlined to become a new auriazul striker.
According to sources close to the negotiation consulted by FOX Sports, the Cañoneros stopped the operation when there was already an agreement between the university students and the 21-year-old player.
Apparently, Mazatlán FC backed down and rectified its initial position to declare it “non-transferable” despite the fact that Pumas took the business for granted, seeing in the Mexican a possible replacement for Jorge Ruvalcaba, who emigrated to Standard Liege from Belgium.
