DT from Once Caldas made a huge mistake confusing Alianza

Alianza Lima defeated Once Caldas 2-0 for Blanquiazul Night. Despite the defeat, the members of the Colombian team were satisfied with the quality of their rivals and also with the large number of spectators at the National Stadium in Lima. The technician, Hernan Dario Herreradid not hesitate to express his praise for the fans in attendance, although he made a mistake by confusing the Alliance fans with those of Sporting Cristal.

“First we have to congratulate all the fans of Sporting Cristal,” the coach began in his statements to the broadcaster Liga 1 Max. When the reporter pointed out his mistake, he quickly corrected himself. “I'm sorry, from Alianza, for how (the fans) handled themselves. I think it is a pleasure to lead a team like Alianza,” corrected the strategist.

“It was a very hard-fought game between the two teams in the first half. Both she and we were very balanced. They came a little more from the corners, but I think Once Caldas controlled the game very well in the first half.” “In the second game we are waiting for some modifications as we are in training to see the team that is in will compete in the Colombian league. I think they took advantage of our mistakes there,” the coach added.
