    I’m curious to see how Jonathan Silva performs for Sporting today. We need potential left-backs to start attracting attention.

    1. Gonzalo

      as far he is sub

  3. Gonzalo

    Sampaoli may call up RB Victor Salazar from San Lorenzo. I like him. He is very very fast and combative. I mentioned him few times as one of the 5 of very talented generation of rightbacks: Gomez, Peruzzi, Di Placido, Bustos, Salazar. But at the moment I can’t understand Sampaoli. He is exact opposite of Bauza on selection. Bauza was completely closed but Sampaoli search through like spoiled child. First Jose Luis Gomez. Just one game and out. Ok, he is injured but now I doubt Sampaoli would call him up again when I see what he is doing. He just called up Bustos, as far he didn’t get single minute. Now we hear about Salazar. There were also rumours about Di Placido before and Buffarini. IMO all they are interesting players that may reinfore our right flank, but thats needs time.

    Whilst he is not giving them chance. One match is not a chance. Nacho, Papu Gomez, Jose Luis Gomez, Tagliafico. He must start work with players not only calling them.

    1. Gonzalo

      Besides that means Sampaoli will stay with his 3:4:3 and want adapt another fullbacks for Acosta position.

    2. Rhaelyn

      Maybe sampaoli is evaluating through training sessions. The problem sampaoli facing is that he dont know whether to go with experienced squad or new players given the situation argentina is in ri8 now
