Club América Coach Jardine: Team Not Yet at 100% Despite Leading Clausura 2024

In a meeting with journalist David Faitelson at Coapa, Club América coach André Jardine expressed that his team is not yet performing at their full potential, despite currently leading the Clausura 2024 standings. Club América possesses the third-best offense with 27 goals and the best defense, having conceded only 9 goals in the tournament so far.

Jardine's assessment comes as a surprise, given Club América's impressive performance in the Clausura 2024. The team sits atop the standings with 32 points, holding a 3-point lead over their closest pursuers, Toluca, Monterrey, and Cruz Azul. A win in their upcoming match against Pumas could nearly secure the league leadership for Club América, especially considering they will face the tournament's worst team, Puebla, in the final round.

The upcoming clash between Pumas UNAM and Club América is set to be an exciting encounter. While Club América has been in top form, going unbeaten in five consecutive games and reaching the semi-finals of the CONCACAF Champions League, Pumas UNAM currently sits in ninth place. However, Pumas has recently picked up consecutive wins for the first time this season, adding an element of intrigue to the match.

Why this matters: Club América's strong performance and Jardine's assessment highlight the high standards and expectations within the team. As one of Mexico's most successful and popular clubs, Club América's pursuit of the Clausura 2024 title holds significant importance for both the team and its passionate fanbase.

Despite the team's impressive statistics and league position, Jardine remains focused on continuous improvement. "We are not yet performing at 100% of our potential," he told Faitelson during their meeting at Coapa. With crucial matches ahead, including the semi-finals of the CONCACAF Champions League, Club América will look to elevate their game and solidify their position as the frontrunners in the Clausura 2024.
