Colo Colo defeated 2-0 Everton from Viña del Mar in the Monumental Stadium and stretched its advantage in the exclusive leadership of the National Championship.
Once the match is over, the coach Gustavo Quinteros placeholder image valued the level exhibited by the team against the “Ruleteros”, analyzed the next Superclásico against University of Chile and referred to the arrival of the Venezuelan Christian Santos.
“It is a match that we resolved in the second half. The first half was even, goals were annulled, but we were not clear to open the scoring. After the set piece goal, the team played looser with more successful transitions. Maybe we could score one more goal“, DT began in dialogue with the official broadcast.
In addition, he assured that victory “It not only works for the Classic, but for everything that comes. It is a motivation to be in the first place, the players are motivated and committed. If we lose points, it will be because the rival asks us something different. The players will give their maximum to continue making differences in the table“.
On the arrival of the Venezuelan striker, Quinteros considered that “He is a player who was on the list, we had other priorities. I know it, when I was in the United Arab Emirates I analyzed it to take it. He has the conditions to contribute to the team, he can help us a lot. He is an area player, he has definition and he scores goals from the head. It is a feature we are looking for. It will be a great contribution to the team. “
“It is difficult for him to be with the U, but he can help us a lot in the last part of the tournament, where there will surely be difficult games. Adding someone of these characteristics will help us,” Quinteros concluded about Christian Santos.
Leonardo Gil: “The Superclásico against U will be a difficult match”
Leonardo Gil was in charge of sealing Colo Colo’s victory over Everton with a brilliant shot from outside the area. After the engagement, the “Colorado” assured that he is “happy for the group and the team that we are forming. It was a very difficult match. We knew how to control it, then the goal opened for us with the ball stopped. I am happy for the triumph“.
“In my career I never had the possibility of being among the scorers, yes among the assistants. Today I have less assists, but I added a goal to my game. I owe this moment to my teammates, we have been doing things well. The team plays well, it’s easier, we all have a chance to score a goal, “he added.
In turn, Gil considered that “We have to think about the El Clásico, it will be a difficult match and there is still a long way to go. Any team can beat anyone. We have to stay focused to keep getting points“.
Finally, he referred to the possibility of being summoned by Martín Lasarte to La Roja: “You work for that. In the National Team there are great players who are doing well, we have to keep working. If the call comes, happy and if not you have to continue the same“.
