      "The feeling is that we can improve a lot, especially in the offensive part of the game,” explains the coach. “The game was similar to that of Sunday: better in the second half, we played with more courage and we managed to control of the match. We still have to grow in the ability to shorten those who start with pressure, getting used to defending against the player in front of us, not on what we have behind us. It is about changing the way of thinking and it is not easy to happen in a short time.”

      And he adds: "Right now you can accept mistakes, I didn't want to see passivity, but a team that could also be wrong while remaining proactive."

It is normal that, at this time of the season, there may be difficulties, but the team has a lot of enthusiasm in order to better prepare for an important season.

      "The method of play have yet to enter the head, but we are on the right track,” adds the defender. “It changes a little for us defenders because the coach asks us to play a higher line, ne more attentive to the reading of the ball and less so in relation to the man. In this type of game, it is important that the defensive phase being implemented by the whole team.
