Miguel Ángel Russo will not travel with Boca for Thursday’s game against Libertad, by decision of the leadership, which considered taking care of the DT’s health a priority. The former Vélez and Rosario Central is a risk patient, but he had already shown his desire to accompany his clients beyond the pandemic.
The coach confirmed the list of 22 players who will travel to Asunción to retake the CONMEBOL Libertadores and made specific decisions in its layout.
On the one hand, he left out, in tune with the line of the football council, Sebastián Villa. Weigandt also stays in Buenos Aires, who is about to go to Gimnasia y Esgrima La Plata.
Agustín Obando was one of those who had the chance to add minutes, but being one of the last to test positive for Covid-19, he will not fly to Asunción either. Julio Buffarini and Ramón Ávila, with different injuries, will continue their recovery in Buenos Aires.
In addition to a large group of youth, Russo decided to leave Agustín Rossi and Javier Garcia in Ezeiza. The DT considered better to divide the group of four archers, to avoid risks of massive contagions and to run out of alternatives in that key position.
The 22 traveling are: Esteban Andrada, Manuel Roffo, Frank Fabra, Emmanuel Más, Carlos Izquierdoz, Lisandro López, Carlos Zambrano, Jorman Campuzano, Iván Marcone, Alan Varela, Pol Fernández, Nicolás Capaldo, Leonardo Jara, Aaron Molinas, Gonzalo Maroni , Edwin Cardona, Eduardo Salvio, Enzo Roldan, Franco Soldano, Walter Bou, Carlos Tevez and Maruro Zárate.
