Son of former AFA president Julio GRONDONA, Humberto, gave his opinion on the Copa Libertadores final, Lionel SCALONI and the current Argentina team.
Speaking in an interview with Mundo D, the former Argentina youth coach had this to say:
“With my dad, the second match (Copa Libertadores final) would have been played at River’s stadium. With or without fans. It would never have been played outside the country.”
In regards to Argentina team coach Lionel SCALONI, here were his thoughts:
“Things, maybe, aren’t the best but when the president picks, you have to support. It’s a decision strictly by TAPIA.”
GRONDONA mentioned that while it didn’t bother him that SCALONI did not have much experience, he did admit that he didn’t like SCALONI being appointed until the Copa America.
Regarding the current Argentina team:
“In other times, the coach didn’t sign until an event, a cycle of six matches is not half. It’s a young national team, but they need to be four or five more players to be stronger.”
“I feel like without MESSI, DI MARIA, AGUERO or ROMERO, the Argentina team is incomplete. Without them, we are not a competitive national team.”
Huberto also stated the following:
“Those players never pushed nor got rid of any player or coach. MESSI never gave his opinion on anyone, he’s a reserved kid but with a lot of character.”
