César Luis Menotti, director of AFA National Teams, highlighted the coaching staff of the Argentina Selection, headed by Lionel Scaloni because “he works seriously and does not sell smoke.”
The “Flaco”, world champion in 1978, was one of those who most supported the new coaching staff and considered that the title obtained before Brazil at the end of the America Cup at the Maracana stadium in Rio de Janeiro, it is the “closing of a search”.
“It is not (Lionel) Scaloni only, I met the four of them, I have a very affectionate relationship and I love (Pablo) Aimar, and also (Roberto) Ayala and (Walter) Samuel. They are young boys, wanting to working seriously, not selling smoke, full of projects and ideas, “Menotti remarked in statements to a television program.
Menotti, who renewed his link with the AFA until March 2022, also underlined that the project and the organization were fundamental in order to cut the 28-year streak without titles.
“There is a leadership of AFA that values the National Team and gives broad powers to the coaches. There is an organization that allows the boys to be united. A spirit of progress and support from the leadership,” he completed.
