Gallardo points to the title with River Plate, despite the casualties: "We are facing a great possibility"

Marcelo Gallardo accepted that River Plate, despite the losses due to injuries, is “facing a great possibility” of getting the title of the League Tournament, which would be what he is missing in his showcase as a millionaire DT.

In a press conference, prior to the classic with San Lorenzo, the coach anticipated the match, for which confirmed the presence of Enzo Pérez, but did not give the starting eleven. In addition, he answered on all the topics of his team’s present.

“It has been a great credit for the difficulty we had in the last half to form the team. We had a lot of difficulty: we had to use alternatives that weren’t the best, but we got games afloat and that sustained us. It is not ideal, but it is good that we have gone through that, with a very negative streak of injuries, players in the national team and others ”, he commented on the current situation of the team in the championship.

And he completed: “We reached the top and we have to hold on. Against San Lorenzo and Talleres they are important games and that is going to set a pattern for us, but I have no doubts that another team is going to get in to fight for the championship ”.

ENZO PÉREZ, READY FOR THE CLASSIC
“Enzo is fine, he was able to recover, he trained well these last days and he is going to be part of the team. He has the medical discharge to play and he feels good ”.

THE STREAM OF INJURIES AND WAITING FOR THE SELECTED
“We brought out games that we arrived with a lot of problems and we were able to get good results. That sustained us. That builds confidence, although it is not ideal. We come with a very negative streak of injuries, then the national team players, but we were strong to resist those moments ”.

“Now we have to continue going through difficulties in assembling the team but we are going to continue working so that it suffers as little as possible.”

“De La Cruz arrives this afternoon (Friday) and tomorrow joins the list of concentrates. In principle he had no difficulties and is here to be part of the team. We will see what level of fatigue you have. I have to evaluate how they are. Paulo Díaz had a discomfort, he could not play yesterday (Thursday), but due to the studies that they did, there is no injury. It comes with a charge and we will see how it recovers between today and tomorrow. That is why I say that just tomorrow, with all the cards on the table, I will define the assembly of the team ”.

“Tomorrow I am going to decide the team because I have to evaluate the possibilities of the players of the national teams that arrived. And thus finish conforming in my head what the replacement can be or in what way we can have the replacement of that low that is very important (referring to Fabrizio Angileri) “.

WHAT YOU EXPECT FROM THE CLASSIC WITH SAN LORENZO
“First of all, I can’t think about the last two games because there is a current situation that is another. They were games that we controlled and dominated, they were rough, we even missed two penalties in one game and lost. That usually happens in football, but I don’t think about that”.

“They come with some difficulty, we with great confidence and we hope to take advantage of that to continue consolidating the operation, beyond the casualties.”

THE SITUATION OF CARRASCAL AND INTERNAL COMPETITION ON THE PLANT
“Carrascal did not lose ground, he was not in the starting team but he did not lose ground if he had not played against Boca due to Romero’s injury and against Banfield he entered the second half. He left the team due to internal competition, due to performances, there is no mystery “.

“It is something that we already have established, the team works that way but the rivals also play and take notes and get to know you. For us it is a very big challenge to sustain ourselves in the face of the variable that the teams we face have. Position is the same always, it is what we play, sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn’t, but we identify with that form. With a single competition we want to have that energy that is needed to reach the end of the championship with possibilities “.

“It is not the best moment of internal competition, first because we have many important players out of the team due to injury, yes of results. We got a lot of points on these dates, but I would like not to suffer what we suffered with the assembly of the eleven. That internal fight occurs when everyone is available and everyone is fighting for a place in healthy competition and I can choose. Now it does not happen because we are constantly rearming ourselves and I would like to have all the players healthy “.

ABOUT JULIÁN ÁLVAREZ: “WE ARE GOING TO TRY TO PROTECT IT SO THAT THE NOISE FROM OUTSIDE DOES NOT CONFUSE YOU”
“We have to be very careful, especially because he is a boy who has been working with us for several years and is in a process of growth and maturity. What he has shown in recent times is what we thought he could develop. if he continued taking the normal steps, without overwhelming him. We have to be careful because he is still young. “

“I think he has a very good head and family that accompanies him. We are going to try to protect him so that the noise from outside does not confuse him. He will have his own roof because he will continue to grow and have good times. We must achieve that nothing destabilize it. “

THE CHALLENGE OF RIVER AND HAS THE DECISION ON YOUR FUTURE ALREADY DATED?
“I had to be prepared to arrive and then demonstrate with actions and behaviors. In my head I knew that I could not fail. In football you can go well or badly, but what you cannot have is the conviction of what you want. I was sure of it. that I could not assume a role like the one I have without having the necessary capacity to manage. I had a lot of difficult decisions, I cannot keep any. Some even require certain feelings. Many times I had to leave feelings to make a decision ” .

“It is a question that I cannot answer (about the decision to continue). Firstly because I am not thinking about it and secondly because I would be unable to speak out of respect for myself. I am here to answer about the game on Sunday, today I do not have answers”.

THE WORKSHOPS OF CACIQUE MEDINA
“I know Cacique Medina as a person and I had him as a footballer, he is doing a great job in Talleres in a structure that has been behaving in a very good way, beyond the loss of players and having to renew itself permanently.”
