Juan Román Riquelme chose to go out to say his thing this Monday after the triumph of River plate against Boca Juniors for the Super classic of the League Tournament: “The easiest thing would be to blame the referee, but River was just the winner. As we were in the three classics that we played at home,” said the vice president of Boca.
However, he also had criticism for the refereeing: “We have heard throughout the week that Boca is always helped and, if you think about it, in five classics that we played, in three they threw us a player”. Although he also reflected on the vehemence of the xeneixe defender: “The first play is not a foul and in the second yellow Marcos, with his age, could avoid that clash, but he plays like this: 100 percent and nothing is saved”
Looking a little beyond the Superclásico, the now leader did not accept that this Boca lacks important players: “We do not lack hierarchy. This team eliminated several of River in this year and a half, and beat Atlético Mineiro of the Cup Liberators, “said Román.
Other phrases from Riquelme in the Superf Fútbol program, from TYC Sports:
“With D´Onofrio there is a pending barbecue, I have great respect for him. When possible, we will do it. He only counts the times he wins, when he loses he says nothing.”
“It is more than clear that we bet on Battaglia, we dream that it continues for many years”
“Since we have been at the club, we have played five classics and in three we had one less. Red’s first yellow is not even missing.”
“We do not like to lose with our rival, but it is football and they are things that happen.”
