In the last weeks, Damián Batallini appeared as one of the main candidates to reinforce Boca’s attack, but it was confirmed that his future will be at Atlético San Luis of Liga MX.
The footballer himself spoke with TNT Sports and revealed: “It was a personal decision, Boca’s offer didn’t really come and Mexico’s was good for the club, it’s something positive.”
“I tried to take it easy, to talk about it with the family and make the best decision,” added the Argentinos Juniors forward.
As the Mexican soccer pass market is already closed, the player will remain at El Bicho until the end of the year, to later join his new team.
“I am very grateful, I was born here, I have been at the club for more than ten years. Obviously I’m happy for the step I’m going to take, but a little sad to leave my house ”, assured.
Batallini was part of the first of the two friendlies that the La Paternal team played against Arsenal. In that match, Diego Dabove’s team won 1-0 with a goal from Iván Colman, while in the second match they fell 2-0 with goals from Nicolás Miracco and Facundo Pons.
“He’s good to get into the rhythm knowing that the tournament is close to. Little by little while the matches go by we will be better ”, considered the attacker.
