Sebastian Caceres denies any frustration over the inconsistent playing time under America’s head coach Santiago Solari, and insists it’s good to not know if he’s going to compete until the day of the match.
Caceres, 21, was an unused substitute in the club’s season opener before starting 2-1 over Necaxa in the middle of a victory.
He said the tension in the team could force players to repair a backline that made ‘very dangerous opportunities’ possible at the start of the campaign.
What was said?
“It’s very good to always claim for each other and until the day of the game not to know who is going to play,” Caceres said. TUDN. “It’s good because we always have the tension to want to play.
‘The competition that exists between the four [available center backs] because Jordan [Silva] plays a good role in the team, it keeps you alert and always in the best conditions to be able to play. “
Still, Caceres was disappointed with the overall performance against Nexaca.
‘It was not defensively the best game; we have allowed a lot of dangerous opportunities and we have to emphasize that part, ‘he said. “We always create chances, we are a team with a lot of goals and if we can keep the opponent at zero, there is a lot of chance to win.
‘We are going to improve certain aspects of the game as the weeks and games go by, we are going from less to more. We did not have the best match last season, but it was won and that is very important. However, victory does not cover the mistakes or the shortcomings, and we must improve. “
