One game Club America looks like a contender for the Liga MX championship, the next a relegation candidate. And coach Antonio Mohamed is unsure of the reasons.
“I don’t have the answer to why the team plays one game very well and one really bad,” stated Mohamed in a news conference on Thursday. “I am responsible for the results.”
The America coach said his team’s season has been “mediocre,” but he hopes the team can finish well in the last three rounds of matches and produce in the playoffs.
“Today everything is dark and we hope that next week everything will look rosy,” Mohamed added. “It is proven that we can beat anyone if we play well, but also we can lose against anyone.”
“Our best tool is to play as a team, our number one enemy is us,” he continued.
America hasn’t won in five Liga MX games at the Estadio Azteca but travels to Puebla on Sunday sitting in fifth position, although Las Aguilas are only two points above ninth placed Atlas.
America has reached the final in the previous two league tournaments in Mexico, falling against Leon in the Apertura 2013 and defeating Cruz Azul in the Clausura 2013.
