Leonardo Sigali and Racing Club are having a great time at CONMEBOL Libertadores, but they take it easy.
The defender of La Academia spoke with the radio program ‘Jogo Bonito’ and stated that they are not candidates in the Cup: “We are in a growth stage and we still have a long way to go to be candidates in the Libertadores. In these 3 games the idea remained and we are evolving. Today we cannot put on the candidate label. “
In addition, he expressed that the restart of the local tournament would help them to be more in rhythm. “We could use it to start the tournament to continue filming. The Copa Libertadores game will be very important and a final for us.”
“The anxiety that we had to start went down when we started to train. Being on a soccer field again with our teammates calmed the anxiety. If the tournament starts now, it will be double happiness,” added the 33-year-old defender.
Asked by the Argentine National Team, Sigali pointed out that he feels that he can be part of the team: “I don’t think the difference between the centrals of the Argentine National Team and others in local football is noticeable. What is, there is a big difference in the speed of I play between soccer here and soccer in Europe. “
“When I see the list of the Argentine National Team and I am not there, I am not angry, it invites me to continue improving and making an effort. I liked how the defense of the Argentine National Team played in the Copa América. In my career I grew little by little and I am convinced that if I continue working in this way, I can have a chance in the Argentine National Team. There were always great centrals and it was not given to me, “he added.
Finally, the central referred to the work and philosophy of Sebastián Beccacece. “Both Beccacece and the entire coaching staff are very close to the player, they always have us present and work in the same way with all the players. They are great people and we constantly exchange ideas”, he stated.
“Beccacece deals with Lisandro López in the same way as with the youngest player or a cook. He is always close to the squad, “Sigali closed, praising his DT.
