Pablo Aránguiz, midfielder of Universidad de Chile, was clear in pointing out that the blue squad still does not give up the option of fighting for the title, despite leaving important points against Colo Colo, Santiago Wanderers and Deportes Antofagasta in recent dates. After playing the date 24, the cast directed by Esteban Valencia is located in sixth place in the table with 34 points, 12 away from the pointer, his ‘archrival’. Asked if the ‘U’ has already renounced to go for the title, the 24-year-old midfielder declared that “we do not take for granted the (objective of) getting the championship, there are ten dates left, there are 30 points and we are 12. No one says it’s not possible… to rule out the tournament would be to think mediocrely.” I think that for my head and that of the team at no time has the tournament been lost, there are 10 dates left and we will get the most points, waiting for those at the top to entang up points to reduce the difference, “he added. Then, Aránguiz acknowledged that “those at the top are moving away a little, knowing that we have one less party than several who are at the top. As a group we have talked, we have to return to what we were before Colo Colo.” We were a team, until the match with Unión Española, that always played well, that at times gave good moments of good football, achieving good results and that we want to resume, to be the protagonist team that it had been until three dates ago, we have to work, be together from all areas. This week has been good, we want to leave behind the previous dates with a win at the weekend,” he added. In the same vein, the former Unión Española and Dallas FC indicated that “the team has not been achieving good results. Perhaps we have not played the way we had been doing until Unión Española, which came with good performances, hence the teacher began to make decisions in terms of player rotation. When it is your turn to be there, you must show that you can be an option to be from the first minute.” For now, the ‘U’ is located today in the qualifying zone for the Copa Sudamericana. “We have to prepare ourselves to face the coming matches and get the most points in the remaining dates to qualify for an international cup, which is the goal,” he said.
