The Argentine coach spoke at a press conference after the 3-0 win over Uruguay in the South American Qualifiers.
Here are the best phrases of the Argentine coach:
“Before scoring the goal we had two situations in which we could have unblocked the game, but this team is very aware of the difficulty of playing the Qualifiers. Patience is a virtue of this team.”
“Even the goal was a tremendously difficult game in which they closed very well. They complicated us with two plays by Suárez, but that’s what we knew: it’s a team with great defense and first-rate forwards.”
“The players feel identified with the people, with the jersey and that’s good.”
“Lo Celso has been with us from day one. We greatly value his football, but we could never have it in its fullness, for one thing or another. For us, or for any club in the world, he is a player of the best.”
“The team played a good game, as it did against Paraguay for several minutes. Football is not just a moment: when the opponent attacks you you have to make yourself strong and we knew how to do it. When the team can play, the truth is that it is a pleasure see him”.
“Soccer has moments: when they got us into trouble we were solving it and then we managed to grow.”
