New Argentina National Team coach Edgardo BAUZA took the media on Tuesday to talk about his new position.
BAUZA spoke about Lionel MESSI, the players and the team. Here’s what he had to say:
“We have not contacted MESSI or anyone in his family. The idea is to speak to PEREZ and after that to travel to speak with MESSI. It’s not about convincing MESSI but to talk to him. Those of us who have worked in football know the frustrations. I won’t make major changes in the first call-ups. It’s important that these players lead the way.”
“I’m one of those who think that everyone should attack and everyone should defend.”
“Surely HIGUAIN will be there. We have to support him and give him confidence. MASCHERANO could play as a central defender but also has great timming in being the number 5 of the team. I think about TEVEZ just like all the other players. He’s a player that nobody can put into question.”
“It’s the most important challenge of my career. And I told Armando PEREZ today: I’m grabbing onto this and I’m giving it my all. If today I don’t dream about bringing the World Cup to the Pope and more so with Argentina, I should devote myself to another profession.”
