“It is not to dramatize, it is the year we are experiencing: an irregular year, in which we do not fully find ourselves as a team. From then on it’s all my responsibility, because we couldn’t put together a good team and be reliable.” insisted the idol of the institution. He also added that “it’s about maintaining convictions and continuing to work.” “Accompany this negative process, protect ourselves to come out from within, strengthen ourselves from these bad results without overdramatizing”said.
Gallardo concluded: “I come here to protect the players, to support them. That those footballers who are not at their best level can continue working to find it. I’m not here to say that you don’t understand my message. There are some processes that are normal, for some players faster and others slower. It is very easy to rant about a bad result and equipment malfunction. And it’s okay, I don’t see anything else. But I’m not going to dramatize.”
