Boca Juniors beat Banfield in the final of the Maradona Cup Championship Phase via penalties and added a new title.
Carlos Tevez spoke after obtaining a new championship with Xeneize and expressed his happiness for winning the contest that bears Maradona’s name: “This title is very important because it is the first tournament to be named after Diego’s death. It was important to win it for Boca. Almost all the teams were on vacation and we played the final, so it’s not all that bad. We did everything we could to make things right. “
In addition, the Boca idol reflected on the elimination against Santos: “It’s football, sometimes you can play well or badly. The elimination hit us more than anyone.”
“Both Miguel and we, referents of the group, were wrong because we could not get the rebellion out of the group“.
“We lacked rebellion to catch the ball, play, show that you want to. There was the biggest failure we had.”
On the other hand, on the 10th, he mentioned his family situation: “Unfortunately my old man has no chance. It is a difficult time for me and my family. I will miss my dad’s hug but I have my family’s“.
