Magallon Downplays Vergara's Scolding
With a crazy week leading up to El Clasico, Chivas President Jorge Vergara had talks with the players. Chivas went on to win over America with a 1-0 score line, but Chivas defender Johnny Magallon doesn’t think the scolding inspired the win.
“We didn’t win because of (the scolding) this weekend. We won because of our work on the pitch. We managed everything well. It was an intense and good week,“ said Magallon. "What happened wasn’t going to impair what needed to worry about, which was the work on the pitch. We won because of those merits, because the guys made a great effort.”
Magallon didn’t think the squad merited a scolding by Vergara because results hadn’t been that bad.
“It was a complicated week. Sometimes the attention isn’t bad, but I also don’t think we had that bad of results. The scolding came, we accept it, but the team was calm, we never took the eye of the goal which was to be good on the pitch and to get the three points against America which we got in the end.”
The change of managers didn’t influence as much, noted Magallon.
“With Omar (Arellano), although it was three games, everything was carried out in the best way possible. Besides, he was a person with our complete confidence and I think that we’d have favorable results(with him as well). Those are decisions that are made. They don’t ask as, we only accept them. It was also a successful decision, I can say, because we got a victory and we’re relaxed with Paco (Ramirez).”
After the three points from the game against America, Chivas climbed to second place in Group 2 making qualification to the Liguilla possible.
“That’s what we wanted, to be in a position where we’d only really depend on ourselves. We know we have difficult games to still play, but we know that we have the capability to play intelligent games. The most important thing is that we have qualification in our hands.”
