The UANL Tigres coach, Miguel Herrera, He regretted this Saturday that his team has allowed the Chivas de Guadalajara to grow, which he beat 2-1 in the Apertura of Mexican soccer.

“In the end we let them grow, we started giving them balls, but the important thing was to win to stay in the top four places.; It was a good game, we were not so showy, but practical, “he said at a press conference.

With a couple of goals from Frenchman André Pierre Gignac, the Tigres beat Guadalajara in their stadium, in a result that he raised the team to third place and put it close to the quarterfinals.

Herrera recalled that when he had him as a rival, he had to receive the goals from the Frenchman and now that he has him on his side, intends to take advantage of it.

“He hadn’t been 100 percent, he’s practically recovered, showing the quality of a player he is. Before I suffered it, now I want to have it “said the strategist who highlighted Gignac’s qualities in free kick plays, his shot, his ability to distribute balls and his personality.

Although it is one of the three best teams in the championship, the cats have yet to defeat Juárez, next Saturday to access the top eight phase without depending on the results of their rivals.

That meeting will be surrounded by curiosity because Juárez is led by the Brazilian Ricardo Ferretti, who marked an era with the Tigres which gave him five league titles, the final of the last Club World Cup, a Copa Libertadores and a Concacaf title.

“It will be a game full of things in the field environment, but the team arrives at a good time; we are going with the idea of ​​contesting to seek victory ”, he concluded.

The Tigres have six victories, seven draws, three defeats and 25 points, one less than the Atlas, occupying the second place, two over Toluca and three over León, its main pursuers.
