Damián Batallini is wanted by Boca Juniors to become a reinforcement and spoke in 90 minutes about this chance and about the relationship he has with Juan Román Riquelme, whom he had as a partner in Argentinos Juniors and from whom he expects a call soon.
“I know the two clubs spoke. I would like to play in Boca, like all players. Tomorrow (Wednesday) I am going to play with Argentinos Juniors against Boca, for now, “said the Bicho midfielder. “I think it is time to take the leap. I know what the Boca world is. I spoke with Alexis and Kevin, and with the Tank. If it happens I will be happy, “he added in an extensive talk with Sebastián Vignolo’s program.
“I was going to train with Riquelme’s brother, but I got to Argentinos on my own. I still haven’t been able to talk to Riquelme and I hope I can see him tomorrow (Wednesday). With Riquelme we were going to train together. We are both from Don Torcuato. I enjoyed it in training and in the barbecue. He would pick me up at home. My family is from Boca and I from Argentinos. My idol was Riquelme. In Torcuato everyone has Roman as an idol, even the River fans“Batallini related about his link with the greatest idol xeneize.
On the other opportunities he had to move to big teams, he commented: “I did not speak with Gallardo, but I know that at the time they spoke with my representative. Independent was one of those who was most interested, but due to economic reasons, it was not given. I try to be on the sidelines so as not to go crazy. I try to think about the friendly tomorrow (Wednesday). I know they are talking and I hope they let me know ”.
“Villa has other characteristics. It’s very fast. I am characterized more by power and by going forward. I feel comfortable on both sides because I played in various positions. I think Boca is an ideal club. I’m at the right time and if it happens I will take the opportunity. Alexis told me that it is another world. Which is different and beautiful. He is a guy with a great personality and he told me to stay calm. I am waiting for the call, with the cell phone with sound just in case, “Batallini concluded.
