Edgardo BAUZA spoke about the number 9 position, MESSI, MASCHERANO and more.
Speaking to a radio station in Argentina, new National Team coach Edgardo BAUZA revealed who could be his starting number 9 in the team. Here’s what he had to say:
“We’ll see who will start alongside MASCHERANO; maybe BANEGA can play a bit further up. And up front, PRATTO has a good chance (of being the number 9) but it’s between him, AGUERO and ALARIO.”
“MESSI’s important and will wear the captain’s armband. But there’s six, seven players who are also symbols (of the team), who share the same idea. In this team, it’s not just one captain.”
“In the National Team, one plays with his best players against the best players. That means you can’t do anything wrong, that mistakes cost you a lot. At the international level, everyone has to attack and everyone has to defend. The other day I saw MESSI running to win back the ball in a friendly match. Why can’t he do it? There’s no use having two defensive midfielders if the others don’t help out.”
