Edgardo BAUZA: “I’ll take off DI MARIA when…”

Angel Di Maria

Edgardo BAUZA commented on Angel DI MARIA, Lionel MESSI and more.

Speaking to the media, BAUZA was asked about DI MARIA’s place in the team. Here’s what he had to say:

“Everyone tells me “when are you going to take DI MARIA off” and I say I’ll take him off when there’s someone that plays better than him. In the last match, DI MARIA was the one that ran the most. Nearly 12km.”

About MESSI:

“MESSI doesn’t resolve everything alone. The team has to help him. They say MESSI picks his friends (into the team) but that’s a lie. I don’t know where they invent these things.”

    “Bielsa is the best manager in football history, who’ve won the great 1 runner-up trophy of copa libertodores and the great 1 runner up trophy of copa del ray.” “If Messi played we couldn’t even go to tie-breaker, lost before 90 mins. Pekarman is wise.”

    nice joke.I thing 2nd joke is better than first one.

    did you know that,in 2006 wc the worst discision is messi was benched the whole match against germany.

    sometimes you need luck.for example why pep gardiola failed to win ucl with bayern munich.I thing you agree with me that zidan is not high profile manager but he won his first ucl as a manager just under six month,on the other hand arsen wenger are trying year after year to win something big.who is better of the two zidan or aresen wenger???

    this season bercelona are strugling with young players.

      Yes. Luck matters everywhere. And I’m not saying Zidane is a good coach or he is better than Arsene! But He won UCL, and you need to give him some credit. I heared somewhere that what is the difference between Zidane and Other recent coach in Madrid? When Zidan says anything to the team.. All players just listen him like an obedient student. Why? Cause his personality.

      If you catch my joke, you understand what a sad day it was for my life- what a generation of players that was.

    Mamoun,

    When we are talking about DMs,CMs, I think Nacho Fernandez is really more attacking one than any other of our. While nominally DM you may see him everywhere on the pitch just like those Brazilians – Paulinho, Renato Augusto. Watch last River game and follow him. He is sometimes in penalty box and on wing too. And he is very good passer.

    Martinez Quarta is another talented CB of River after Mammana.

      Gonzalo…Gallardo’s River is definitely exciting to watch because more so than any other team in the primera they have a flow of new, young prospects coming in every year.
      I think Quatra has only played once thus far and he’s an interesting prospect and speaking of Mammana, he’s actually been doing well in Lyon (unfortunately he’s injured currently), which is surprising to me cos I never really thought he was a good CB (but a solid RB). I think I told you before he reminds me of David Luiz (and that’s NOT a good thing!).

      As for Nacho, well he’s the type of player that Argentina sorely lacks i.e. a skillful, ball moving DM and while I know you don’t like Paredes all that much but Nacho’s game foundation reminds me of paredes’s even though is more dynamic while Paredes is more cerebral.

      I personally would like to see Lanzini, Paredes, Pereyra, Cervi, Nacho and Ascacibar all be given a chance and for Acuna to get more game time with the NT, but then again this is Bauza we’re talking about so maybe they’ll get their chance……..AFTER 2018 (if Argentina makes it to the wc that is).

    Apart from the shamelessness, what is equally striking is the arrogance in his words! How can the same person be spineless in front of the afa and behave like a despot in terms of the team selection?

    Other than running 12 km, what else has maria done to the team in the last match?

    Even at his best, maria is not a team player.

    The way his goal was celebrated in the last match seemed like a conspiracy. Those sitting in the bench seemed like saying “oh!finally you got a goal after so many crappy performances. Now it is certain that you will be in the NT for the WC if we qualify.” And maria knows this quite well.

    He has forgotten the Brazil game and Paraguay and Peru and to a large extent also Colombia. He just remembers the last scoreline 3-0.

    Just idiot.

    So we have not better player than Di Maria all over the world? Actually what do you know about Argentina potential, Bauza?

  8. Profile photo of Headless ChickenHeadless Chicken

    Well said. Messi can’t alone win games for us. Di Maria or any attack minded players or #9 need to defend when we need to defend. We won’t even get a spot of 32 in Russia if we want to play fancy football.

    I have some questions on mundo’s commentator.
    1.how a brainless coach(buaza) won two cl(even with ecueduriun club)?
    2.on other hand why beilsa,pekarman and seballa failed???and why pekarman not let messi to play against germany in 2006 wc???

    1. Profile photo of Headless ChickenHeadless Chicken

      Answers:

      1) Yes. He is a Brainless shit. But he has a big tongue – that’s why he talks too much. CONMEBOL just couldn’t bother his too much talking and Vampire like face and give him two trophies and save their life.

      2) Bielsa is the best manager in football history, who’ve won the great 1 runner-up trophy of copa libertodores and the great 1 runner up trophy of copa del ray.

      If Messi played we couldn’t even go to tie-breaker, lost before 90 mins. Pekarman is wise. Don’t you ever see how amazing flowing attacking football Colombia have played in last world cup under Pekarman?? Amazing coach. Though they were hard fucked by Brazil unluckily.

      Sabela was the worst coach ever Argentina have, destroyed the beautify and flair of Argentina football. He should have learned from Pekarman how to play beautiful football.

      #Hope you find your answers dear.

    And as far as picking team mates….I am sorry but there is a blatant disregard to the fans choice and that must be due to player influence. And as much as I love Mascherano, he’s definitely one of the influencers.

    People like me learn about Argentina through Argentine football. Now I know that the AFA is bankrupt, Argentine Press/Media is good for nothing and local football fanatics merely watch the corrupt AFA and don’t criticize the press/media.

    Argentina has not won a trophy for 25 years as nothing is free in this world.

    Argentina has the best football player in the world and asks him to fix dysfunctional national team. When the team lost a game, Argentine press and people wasted time on blaming Messi for losing. Those kinds of people were here too and they didn’t have analytical mind. It was one problem for Argentine football.

    By the way, Bauza didn’t learn anything from last matches and continued to babble.

    Hey, Mr. Talk Bauza
    Your team hasn’t helped Messi anyway. People spread malicious rumors about him because you did a lousy job. You are obsessed with Di Maria. It is just stupid.

    It’s like a kid telling you “look dad I walked back from the supermarket with you,that proves I am usefull”….’that’s very good my child, next time let’s try it with you carrying a bag back”

    Di maria ‘s replacement should be Ocampos ,Franco cervi, or Even giovani lo celso . We have only 3monthes to prepare a new team ,Bauza should give their chance to play in friendly matches. Lucas boye played very well in Torino Fc,He is strong ,fast and good at dribbling but weak at shooting .Hopefully he can be called to assist messi in midfield. ROBERTO PEREYRA is a must,better than Biglia .Franco Vazquez is another player i like very much. Last one should be Alexis Soto and Lo celso,they are very skillful . I wish all of them can be called up in friendly matches.

    Wow that is fantastic to hear cos I just came back from a 14.5 km run, which means I could join the NT *face palm*. Bauza needs to learn to shut up! Also if he wants some one who could potentially be better than Dimaria maybe he should call piatti or perotti or start Acuna or even Correa *another face palm*.

    We say Di Maria runs around like a headless chicken and Bauza gives Di Maria praise for being the headless chicken.

    Did you see Di Maria making a fuss over his goal against Columbia after being replaced? His behavior was disgusting.

    We have no use for Di Maria, Aguero and Higuain who do not contribute to team victory and the worst thing about them is that these players are shameless.

    Everyone makes a mistake. So, I don’t blame a player if he makes a mistake. But the thing is Higuain, Aguero and Di Maria repeat every damn thing and mistake again and again.

    Sometimes we need to take a good look at ourselves to improve ourselves and become better. I like Lionel Messi, not because he is talented but because he continually improve his football skills with constant practice. I don’t see this important thing in Higuain, Aguero and Di Maria.

    Bauza has a prejudice in favor of Di Maria.

    I know exactly when Di Maria will be benched or replaced – When Pereyra, Lamela, Lanzini and all these promising players will be 28.

    1. Profile photo of GonzaloGonzalo

      I think the same.

  17. Profile photo of sandysandy

    At dis rate, maria will be able to run 12 km per match up to 35 yrs of age. Does dat mean dat our NT will have to carry dis burden till den? Anyway this foolish fellows tenure is not going to last till then.

    I said Argentina paid its debt in full plus 20years worth of interest months before the 2014 WC started…………and now two lost Copas to the same damn team and a bunch of humiliating defeats and ties in the upcoming WC qualifiers and still paying!

    Something has to give at some point.

    I know how we all feel about DiMaria, Kun and chubby Pipita but I wonder how they feel about themselves?

    I’m so glad the qualifiers are in March and not any sooner…..who knows, maybe someONE or somebody who is running this team grows a brain all of a sudden to fix the many things that are broken.

    i had a last but very faint glimmer of hope that maybe bozo had learnt some thing in the last 6 games he has been in charge but alas no as if he really thinks di maria is the best we have….sigh…and to add to it how will we ever know if we dont try other options to replace d/m!!!! who has you tried mr bozo
