Cesar Luis MENOTTI knows a thing or two about building a team and a winning team at that.
The World Cup winning coach defended Lionel MESSI and the rest of the Argentina squad saying they have given a lot to the team.
“Now, it’s much easier to say that it’s MESSI’s fault. Instead of criticizing him, we should think about if we would have qualified without him. It’s not his fault nor the fault of the players, they have given a lot these Argentina National Team players.
“If you have a roster of 20 players, you can invite MESSI, if he wants, if he’s well and has the desire to play… But you have to have support.”
MENOTTI stated that before even thinking about getting a coach, they should have to talk about a project. Here’s what he had to say:
“Even before (deciding) a coach, you have to talk about a project. If to talk to the players you have to take a plane, to go to Rome and after that somewhere else… It doesn’t help much. We have to have a working team. I had coaches everywhere in Argentina, it doesn’t have to be magic. You have to work, to move.”
