Tata MARTINO: “We have a lot of number 9’s”


Tata MARTINO spoke about the forwards which could get called up later this month for Argentina, Lionel MESSI and FUNES MORI. Here’s what he had to say:

“I could call up HIGUAIN and Marco RUBEN. But AGUERO’s also great. It’s impossible to call that many number 9’s. Unfortunately, we have a lot of very good number 9’s.”

“MESSI received the award (Ballon d’Or) for the 5th time and he prefers to win someting with the National Team. He’s obsessed.”

“FUNES MORI’s done well and continues to do well. He’s earned his place in the National Team.”
