According to a statement that the team and the league issued on January 9, the new infections were revealed after the club carry out 50 examinations between players, coaching staff and staff of the first team prior to its start in the Guardians Closing 2021.
“People meet isolated and under observation constant of the medical team of the club, as indicated by the guidelines of the health authorities ”, they wrote, in addition to reiterating their commitment to the sanitary measures to prevent the spread of the virus within the institution.

Regarding this match, Guillermo Almada, technical director of Santos Laguna, said that despite the December hurricane that Cruz Azul experienced, they will not be confident even when their rivals went through important moments of uncertainty.
“Is a double edged sword because sometimes footballers draw strength from where there is none due to all the expectations of sports journalism and the arrival of a new coach (Juan Reynoso). But let’s start from the basis that Cruz Azul has a great squad, with a great level and with great footballers”, Said the strategist in a press conference.
The Uruguayan reiterated that those from La Noria have a strong campus that can compete in the first places. In addition, he ruled out that the recent arrival of Reynoso to the cement bench is a disadvantage for rivals.
“They have a high-level squad that won’t go away forget to play football. A coach, whenever he arrives, tries to put all those things together. Reynoso has had a great campaign with Puebla and is a coach who knows the institution, so we wait for a Cruz Azul with a high level, “he said.
It should be remembered that the Peruvian coach arrived in Cruz Azul after an earthquake that shook the heavenly institution. It all started in the semifinals of the last tournament when the Pumas eliminated the cement producers, even though they were four goals behind in the first leg.
