Michelangelo Russo spoke after the victory on penalties of Boca Juniors in view of River plate in the quarterfinals of the League Cup, making mention of the valuable classification to the semifinals and also the cases of covid-19 in the Millionaire.
“Hopefully the River players will recover soon. When it was our turn they killed us, that is the difference between Boca and the rest”, said the DT about the contagions.
Regarding the development of the game, which showed parity between both teams despite the absences of River, the coach said: “We had the opportunities to define it before, we can be better, but we show that Boca is always there”.
The statements of Miguel Ángel Russo:
“There are two worlds in Boca: the outside world and the inside world; the inside world is the one that I like the most, it is the one that counts. Anything is said in the other”
“Hopefully all River players recover soon, I told Gallardo”
“Our team overlaps, we are a tough team”
“We are with very young frills in the middle”
“Boca is like that, you have to overcome adversity always”
“Boca is always there, huh. Fight and fight”
“At the time we went through the same as River with infections, the only difference is that when it happened to us it seemed like a catastrophe.”
