Geronimo Rulli of Montpellier: “I have a strange relationship with Argentina”

11

Geronimo Rulli spoke with TyC Sports where he commented on his relationship with the Argentina national team and Estudiantes de la Plata.

Rulli, still only 27 years of age, has played a total of two matches for the Argentina national team. Speaking in an interview, the Montpellier goalkeeper stated that his dream is the Argentina team but that he has a strange relationship with it.

“It’s a strange relationship that I have with the Argentina national team. It’s my dream and what I always want, to play, to represent my country. What I know is that if I do things well, I’ll be there. At times, I’d say I’m among the best in the world, best statistics and I’m not called and it annoys me. But as I got older, I learned that it’s what I love the most but I’m not going to go crazy about it.”

Regarding his boyhood club Estudiantes de la Plata:

“It’s my family, the love and the great memory I left at the club. It’s everything. I started when I was 5 years old and where I did all of my preparation. I was barely a year into the top division, I enjoyed it. At la Real (Sociedad), I showed everything I did at Estudiantes and the preparation I had.”

  1. My Argentina Squad
    GK – Rulli
    Defender – Foyth, Otamendi, Pezella, Tagliofico,
    Midfielder – De Paul, Paredes, Banega
    Forward – Messi, Aguero, Alejandro Gomez

  2. Why dont you select Alejandro Gomez, Ever Banega, Geronimo Rulli for Argentina despite their fine performance , why they always dropout of the team

  3. I haven’t seen much news on Walter Benitez lately. He set new records last season and even managed to be selected for FIFA’s TOTY last year, which was impressive.

    Any news on him? He seems extremely talented…

  6. To me, Rulli, Ocampos and Lautaro are the ones who have improved the most this season. Dybala and Icardi did great as well. Dybala found back his natural position and Icardi improved a lot his play outside the box. Buendia probably impressed me the most as an unknown player. I had never seen him played before and what a player!

    For the elder players, Di Maria and Papu Gomez continued to surprise me at club. ADM was probably the best playmaker in Europe during the 1st half of the season.
