Germán Burgos was introduced as Newell’s new coach and gave his first press conference.
Following, the best phrases left by his conversation with local journalism:
“I decided to come when the club called me and I began to investigate. And because of the history of Newell’s, Bielsa, Tolo Gallego, Maradona, Messi. I made my debut as a player on this pitch, I lost but we were saved from relegation with Ferro One circle has been closed and another opens. “
“The styles in the role are valid, the role supports everything. But the players and the needs are something else. You have to focus on what is in the team and look at their needs.”
“The analysis that I do is that the team is very long and very wide, you have to adjust these situations quickly to compete with Unión, which is one of the best in our group.”
“Newell’s has a European Olympic village. The analysis I did of the players made me understand that I had to come to help them get out of a difficult situation.”
“I spoke with a group of players from Spain and stressed to them that we have to start playing the games as finals.”
“I will smile after I win.”
The former goalkeeper of Ferro, River and the Argentine national team, 51 years old, will work accompanied by his assistant Armando de la Morena (43 years old), who for almost two decades also worked at the “colchonero” club.
The physical trainer will be Ángel Puebla (54), with an extensive career in Real Madrid with Vicente del Bosque and in Valladolid with Rafael Benítez, while the goalkeeping coach will be César Jaime.
The contract that Burgos signed with Leprosy is until December 2021 and with an option to renew for one more season. He will take charge of the afternoon training this Tuesday and on Friday he will be in the substitute bench to lead the team at the Marcelo Bielsa stadium against Unión de Santa Fe.
Days ago, the ‘Mono’ revealed that he had talks to take command of Las Águilas in Mexico last December: “We were like that to sign for America. We were very close.”
