Matías Almeyda spoke in Club 947 FM Radio Regarding the current situation in Argentine football at an organizational level, he was critical of it, and referred to the decision he made not to coach a team in the country: “Not directing more in Argentine football is a choice of lifetime”.
“As an organization, it stagnated and is in evidence with situations like the current one (pandemic). Argentine football has the product and could be better. They began to look for coaches who would give titles and stopped training,” said the coach of San José Earthquakes.
“Economically, the country is bad and football is the consequence. Long-term projects are few and difficult for a coach. In Argentine football you don’t know when you’re going to play. That part doesn’t allow you to be calm and you have to patching “, analyzed the ex-flyer on the current structures.
Then, El Pelado compared how everything was done in MLS: “In a month and a half they organized the bubble in Orlando. The organization was perfect: how they housed and fed us, the chance to play again and so on.”
On how the controls are carried out in the United States, he pointed out: “They test us every two days and it is the only way we have to work. Just this week we entered the locker room.”
To finish, Almeyda left some heartfelt words to Loco Bielsa: “I feel happy for Marcelo. If I now value what he did, it would be a result. He changed a work methodology, opened doors and handled himself with respect and honesty. Not always football gives you that triumph. “
