Days ago, Efrain Juarez was announced as part of the new coaching staff of the Belgian football Standard de Liege. And in an interview with TUDN, the Mexican did not hide his joy and enthusiasm for the opportunity to be part of the staff of a European team with so much history.

It is a beautiful challenge, a very beautiful challenge. Having the opportunity to come to Europe now in another way, as an assistant, is not an easy thing, but I am very excited. Hopefully everything is given to us and the boys can show their best qualities“, expressed the Mexican, who will be assistant to the Norwegian Ronny Deila, with whom he managed to form a successful duo at New York City FC of the MLS.

Juárez confessed what is the first obstacle they encountered this season: 10 international players will not be with the team until three weeks after the start of the championship.

Finally, he stressed his desire for things to go well in this new challenge. It is a great opportunity for the Mexican, who continues to train in an optimal context and aims to be a great coach for the country in the coming years.
