Boca Juniors president Jorge Ameal spoke exclusively with ESPN Fútbol 90 and confirmed that Boca will ask to postpone Saturday’s match with Banfield in the League Tournament.
Ameal explained that due to the delay they suffered in Brazil, the players will not be able to count on the time necessary to train and rest in the face of their commitment to the Drill. And he also admitted that “it would be good to play the game again” with Atlético Mineiro.
After the controversial elimination against Atlético Mineiro and the scandal in Belo Horizonte, Boca Juniors issued a statement signed by the president in which they affirm that “They have been maliciously harmed, maliciously and intentionally interpreting VAR technology. They also attacked CONMEBOL for the “tendentious handling of our continental football” and lamented the situation that the squad had to experience, which spent almost 12 hours on the buses in front of the police station.
