Aldrete hoses down America rumours

11 April 2013 21:42

Club America defender Adrian Aldrete has quashed suggestions of discord between coach Miguel Herrera and players.

There has been mounting speculation in recent days of a rift within the Liga MX club, but Aldrete scoffed at the reports.

"It's pure rumour, if there were problems the team wouldn't be in the position it is (third) and wouldn't have the points it has," Aldrete said in a press conference.

"Each player and the coaching staff are fully supportive of this (project).”

Theories about problems within the squad came to the fore when captain Aquivaldo Mosquera was visibly unhappy at being brought off in the club’s 1-1 draw last weekend against Puebla.

Herrera has also taken criticism for recent poor results, but Aldrete believe the club just needs a bit of luck in front of goal.

"We've simply not had the fortune of scoring goals like at the start of the tournament, but we have created chances without putting them away," Aldrete said.
