General manager of the Argentina national teams Cesar Luis MENOTTI spoke about Lionel MESSI, Sergio AGUERO and more.
The man who won Argentina their first FIFA World Cup commented on the reasons why he wouldn’t have called-up Lionel MESSI and Sergio AGUERO. Speaking to TyC Sports, here’s what he had to say:
“Personally, I don’t believe it was the time (to call-up) Kun (AGUERO) and same for MESSI. I wouldn’t have called-up MESSI. And the same goes for Kun. They’re playing in difficult moments, with their calendars and cup matches.”
Cesar Luis MENOTTI argues that he would rather try different players.
“I’ll argue that in this game, there’s no much analysis to be done (about AGUERO) because it’s already been done and we want to try out BENEDETTO, as an example, just to say a name.”
About not including Sergio AGUERO in the Argentina team.
“It’s a decision which I talked to the coach about. We do not need to try AGUERO, we all know how he plays and we have to try out others. No one knows AGUERO more than me, when I compared him with ROMARIO they laughed at me.
“You guys (the journalists) are incredible. When he (Sergio AGUERO) is called-up, you don’t want him. And when he’s not here, you ask for him, haha. People are people but the journalists have more responsibilities.”
