River Plate achieved victory in the first leg for the CONMEBOL Libertadores quarters against Nacional de Uruguay and its Manager, Enzo Francescoli, spoke about the controversies that took place during the week with the VAR and referred to the renewals of the contracts of Rafael Santos Borré, Nicolás De La Cruz and Gonzalo Montiel, ties that expire in June 2021.
Francescoli was optimistic about expanding the contracts for these key pieces for Marcelo Gallardo: “The renovations of Borré, De la Cruz and Montiel are under way. In Argentina it is not a good time but we are making the maximum effort”. Starting in January, these three players can sign with another club and leave the Núñez institution in June with the pass in their possession.
In the interview he gave to El Show de la Oral, the Manager cIt has determined the way in which VAR is used in South America: “An attempt was made to bring more transparency but brought more confusion and doubts. VAR is here to stay, those involved will need time to know in which types of plays to apply it and in which not. Watching plays at another speed and from different angles can generate suspicions“
“One of the virtues that Gallardo has is that he knows which player is better and to put it on. If at any point it leaves, my role will be to find a replacement. The functions in River are very clear, “Enzo pointed out regarding what could happen in the future and highlighted:” The manager position in Argentina goes through a matter of idiosyncrasy. The leaders must be convinced of having a sports director“.
“I had a friendship with Maradona, what happened was something unexpected. When you remember it, moments of sadness come”Francescoli concluded with some heartfelt words for Diego’s death.
