Lobos midfielder Gonzalez reflects on tournament, looks ahead to 2019

Puebla, Mexico, Nov 21 (epa-efe).- Spaniard Abraham Gonzalez, a midfielder for the Mexican league's Lobos BUAP, reflected on his club's performance a week before the end of the Apertura tournament and discussed the need to improve its position in the standings in the next competition.

The Lobos, who have just 14 points and are in 16th place, were eliminated from playoff contention.

"I think the season was uneven and, for us, the important thing is not to lose points because of the percentage issue. It is clear that the match against Toluca will be very important ... the reality is that we have to start getting points," the 33-year-old Gonzalez said on Tuesday.

The former Espanyol player, who has been in the Mexican league for two years, has been working side by side with coach Francisco Palencia with the Lobos, who fight to remain in the First Division every week.

Lobos is a spot ahead of Veracruz in the quest to avoid relegation.

The upcoming match against Toluca provides a chance for the club to improve its position heading into the 2019 Clausura tournament.
