The shameful and ridiculous tournament of our dear ones was consummated Pumas. The work, the strategies, the players, the coach, the board, were not enough to reach, at least, the miserable 12th place in the table. It is a disaster, an unacceptable situation for a club like the National University. Being left out, when 12 of 18 teams qualify for the title fight, is a resounding failure. Pumas found its place at the bottom of the rankings, alongside the baddest, like the San Luis, Necaxa and Juárez. It is the real level of the university students.
This team urgently needs a change to shake its structure. Stick to the new business times that allow you to grow and find a new economic direction. Today, the figure of the Board of Trustees is archaic, obsolete; the team is a fossil. It is time to open up to new investments, money is needed to regain quality in the competition. It is very difficult to live from the Cantera in these times, and more so when you don’t work well with the youth players. It should be a good support, but not represent the greatest support for the first team.

The president’s message, Leopoldo SilvaAfter the chaos in this first semester of 2021, he resorts to set phrases that give very little hope to believe in the improvement of the institution. Little self-criticism, promises that always appear and solutions adrift: “I want to rescue that we continue and will continue with the project of promoting the Mexican soccer player. Like the University, Pumas believes in national talent. We know that consolidation in the first team is a process that requires opportunities, minutes of play. We will continue opening the doors to our youth players. Have no doubt that we know that we must strengthen ourselves in certain areas to remain competitive and return to the place that our institution deserves. We work so that the team has reinforcements that contribute to the game ”. How many times have we been sold this speech?
Coach Andrés Lillini has been ratified. They give the Argentine confidence, because they still believe in his project, a project that left nothing in this Guardians 2021 and that only evidenced mistakes by the coach (recognized by him). Lillini never found a base team, the world fell on her without Carlos González and Alejandro Mayorga. He was not able to make Pumas compete. I agree with the great Juan Carlos Vera, figure and champion with the University, who told EL UNIVERSAL Sports what “[Lillini] the best thing is that it returns to basic forces. He couldn’t handle the pressure. Big teams like Pumas cannot have those results. If he were in Chivas, Cruz Azul or America, he would no longer be a technician. In a small team they give you time, not here ”.
