There will be absolute joy among university fans, as it was confirmed that the Argentinean coach will remain in charge of the team until December 2023. With more experience in the position and with a lot of enthusiasm, the coach is happy to be able to continue consolidating his project and did not hide that his intention is clearly to encourage the use of youth players and to keep certain players.

"Young people are my essence. I only asked Leopoldo, the president, and Mejía Barón to let me continue with this, not so much debuting, but consolidating. The time has come to consolidate them, we have made our debuts. We are going to keep the base of players", were some of the words expressed by the coach.

However, it is known that it has not been easy to keep important players in the team, so he would seek the continuity of some players.

Which players does Lillini want to keep?

Higor Meritao: Although his continuity has not yet been confirmed, according to Dale Azul y Oro it was found out that the Brazilian would sign a contract extension with the club, so it would not be necessary to look for another midfielder.

Diogo de Oliveira: The Brazilian striker is waiting for the club's directors to make a decision on his potential renewal, something similar to what is happening with Higor Meritao.

Juan Ignacio Dinenno: Undoubtedly one of Pumas' best players on the field. The Argentinean forward has not expressed his desire to leave, but it is known that more than one local team will try to take him. For the moment, the only one really interested seems to be Cruz Azul, although there is still no news about a concrete offer.

Alan Mozo: The right-back, like Dinenno, has been one of the players with the best performance in the last few months, so it would not be strange that attractive offers arrive at Cantera. In the event that such an offer benefits the club and the player, Mozo will surely change teams.
