Edgardo BAUZA has commented on next month’s World Cup Qualifiers and stated that Mauro ICARDI won’t be called-up yet.
When asked about abut his recent trip to Europe, Argentina boss Edgardo BAUZA says it was a success but dropped the speculation about Mauro ICARDI featuring for the National Team in the upcoming qualifier. Speaking to TyC Sports, here’s what he had to say:
“Mauro ICARDI won’t be called up yet, but can be at any other time”.
BAUZA recently met ICARDI at Inter’s training ground but made it clear that he would not rush to summon the Nerazzurri captain.
About Inter and MARADONA’s comments:
“I didn’t meet ICARDI alone, I met him together with others at Inter, talking mainly about football.”
In response to MARADONA’s criticism on him about the meetup with ICARDI:
“MARADONA’s attack? I won’t answer this. ICARDI to be called up? The situation is the same as before.”
It remains to be seen who BAUZA will call-up for Argentina’s matches against Chile next month at home before travelling to the altitude in La Paz to play Bolivia. One thing that’s for sure is that despite meeting with the Inter captain, BAUZA is adamant about leaving ICARDI out of the team.
