“I’m happy to have this responsibility. I like to play with a number 9 in the area like a CALLERI. I spoke to MASCHERANO for him to be there (at Rio). He spoke to the club (Barcelona) but they didn’t let him.”

      Good choice indeed.

    2. EnganChe

      Where does Lo Celso fit in this equation? On the bench 🙂 ? Not that I’m complaining about El Vasco’s attacking choice, I think it’s good.

    ‘Joab for David’ likewise ‘Mascherano for Messi’
    always you have a great warrior behind a great king… similarly we had a great Mascherano behind a great Messi.

    Well..I am not sure why he is surprised by Tata’s resignation and he does not want it either..very absurd…

  5. EnganChe

    Yeah, having El Jefecito would have been a huge plus due to his immense leadership qualities and experience. Still, Ascacibar is a very good DM.

    I hope we can play as a team because we don’t have superstars now.
