Atlético Nacional has aroused expectations for the resumption of the Betplay League in which he is a leader and a firm candidate for the title. In this context, there was a press conference this Thursday with the words of Pompilio Páez, Juan Carlos Osorio’s technical assistant in purslane.
“We are very excited to go out to compete and look for the two cups that are in between: the Liga and Copa Sudamericana, which is a trophy that Nacional does not have in its windows. In the preseason that I had as a player, they wouldn’t let us touch the ball for four weeks. One was hardened, it came as a lot of strength and power, but not with the time for the pass, “he said in the first measure.
Then he responded about the replacement of Daniel Muñoz in Nacional: “Helibelton Palacios has played all his life as a winger. He is a player who drives the ball very well, even better than Daniel Muñoz”
He also made positive comments from the four young players who entered the first team of Nacional: “Ewil Murillo is the other player who is working as a right back. In case of need, the fourth would be Yerson Candelo because he is multifunctional.”
“Mena is an extreme player, unbalancing, he plays on the right wing, but he has both profiles like most of our players and he has a good punch ”.
“Alexis Estupiñán and Jímer Fory had been working with the professional team But before they were left out, but as the field was opened to the 30 players they were given the opportunity. Professor Osorio knows them very well and we gave them that continuity due to their conditions and biotype, although they lack competence ”, concluded Páez.
Atlético Nacional will ‘debut’ in the Betplay League on the weekend of September 19, hosting Deportes Tolima in Medellín.
