Battaglia and Izquierdoz assured that the talk with Riquelme was "positive and supportive"

Boca Juniors coach Sebastián Battaglia spoke at a press conference together with captain Carlos Izquierdoz, after the defeat against Gimnasia LP for the League Tournament and in the preview of the semifinals of the Argentine Cup.

Here are the best phrases of DT xeneize:

“Things are invented, it does not surprise me because the Boca world ends up being that. We had a very positive talk, with someone who knows the club a lot and gave us his encouragement. People believe in a lot of situations that you don’t go through, that’s why I clarify that it was nothing negative for the group “.

“Roman is an authority of the club and he decided that it was important to support us at that time. That’s why we held the meeting, we know that we have to be closer together than ever.”

“We have two possibilities to qualify for the Cup. Wednesday is important, it is within the objectives of the club to be able to play another final.”

“It is impressive how he encourages and supports people. I experienced it as a player. The boys are feeling what La Bombonera is, but we must not let them get dizzy.”

“Diego (Maradona) marked my childhood, I lived his stage as a player. I also had him as a coach, as a manager. I have very good memories.”

“Villa is going to participate in the game. Marcos Rojo has no chance to play.”

Next, what the captain of Boca said:

“We were not satisfied against Gimnasia, the penalty made them go ahead and we got into confusion. We wasted the first half and in the second we saw a team with another intention, but we were left with a bitter taste. What happened in the locker room, You (the press) know more than we do, Roman called us and we went to talk to him, he gave us words of support saying that we should recover because we have an important game. He said he had total confidence in us, he showed us that he is with us. I do not understand the need to lie and make people believe things that are not. “

“Unfortunately we got used to these situations, it was known that after the talk it would happen. We try to ignore it but there are things that are not good. Román greeted us, gave us peace of mind and support. There are times we do it in Casa Amarilla or in the gym is normal. “

“We have to focus on improving and playing a good game on Wednesday to have the possibility of playing another final.”

“We are going to look for him from the first minute, we want to win the Cup.”

“Villa earned the place to return with the group.”

“Diego (Maradona) is an inspiration to all of us who have a ball.”

The semifinal against Argentinos Juniors, on Wednesday, November 3, became the great objective of the remainder of this year, because winning the contest directly qualifies for the next CONMEBOL Libertadores.
