Jorge Reina, vice president of Gymnastics and Fencing La Plata, revealed that Diego Maradona’s intention is to “qualify for a cup.”
In dialogue with the radio program “How are you doing?” of Radio Colonia, the leader of the La Plata team expressed: “Maradona wants to go for something greater and we want to give him what he asks for. He has to look like a gymnastics technical director. The idea is to enter a Cup ”.
“Diego is very well, he lost a lot of weight, he exercises every day and he is aware of everything. It is a pleasure to see him as he is, it is our responsibility to take care of him and make him happy, ”added Vice del Lobo.
“We do not see that there are possibilities that Diego will leave, he is happy in La Plata, now that he lives there,” he continued about Maradona’s permanence at the head of the first team.
Jorge Reina also referred to the possible arrival of the Boca player, Marcelo Weigandt: “We will try to close it today. We are chatting with Juan Román Riquelme and Raúl Cascini, on very good terms. It would be a loan with a very high option, because Boca does not want to sell it. It would be until December of next year, but you can return to Boca in July if they wish ”.
While he flatly ruled out the arrival of the Pulga Rodríguez al Lobo: “At the moment the issue is not an option that the coaching staff has evaluated, so it is no.”
What did not like in Gymnastics was the decision of Fernando Torrent, ex Arsenal, who was in Lobo’s plans and finally decided to sign for Rosario Central: “He had a sloppy attitude. Until Saturday morning the representative told me they were coming to La Plata and at noon they told me that they were going to Rosario ”.
The leader referred to the start of the local championship and said: “Let’s hope it will be played in mid-October. At some point you have to start. The reality is that it is very difficult for the clubs. You have to juggle. The squad is well and training. So far we do not have positive cases in the first team, there were in the reserve ”.
