Hey everyone! I hope everyone is doing well..Here are some more BAUZA quotes from an interview he had today with TYC Sports in Argentina.
“I’m going to watch the Superclasico, and then I’ll go to Europe. I’m going to see MAIDANA and CARUZZO. I’d like to start working with the local based players. It also depends on the teams that play the Libertadores.”
“The idea is to be able to work two or three days so that the player can understand the style we want to play. Because if they ever get selected, they’ll have an idea of what we are looking for and the integration would be a lot faster.”
He also was very decisive on confirming that he doesn’t want MASCHERANO to play as a central defender:
“I don’t like him as a central defender.”
He also spoke in regards to Sergio ROMERO:
“I want him to play at his club. He knows what I think. When I chat with him, we’ll see what he can resolve. His coach and him. He had told me that his coach promised him more opportunities, but he hasn’t had much. If he doesn’t play at his club, it will be difficult for him to play for the national team. If this continues like this, I don’t think he’ll play at the World Cup.”
BAUZA will fly to Europe on January 31st to visit the Argentine players that are almost always called up for the national team. BAUZA also revealed that he is also thinking about the possibility of selecting Matias CARUZZO, Ezequiel GARAY and Jonatan MAIDANA.
He also spoke of Angel DI MARIA saying: “He doesn’t own the position.” In regards to HIGUAIN: “I’m not sure that HIGUAIN will start against Chile, it’s a very important match because it could allow to be more comfortable in the standings. From the moment they get called up I speak with them, in training, everywhere. Their current form also is an influence. I evaluate everything.”
What do you guys think of all this? I personally would like to see GARAY back for sure as I think we definitely need him. I also like that he is being tough with DI MARIA, HIGUAIN, and ROMERO as well. We can definitely live without these three players. And I personally would like to see younger and fresher players.
What do you guys think of all this? Is BAUZA all talk?
