“There is no doubt that River, like Boca, wanted to play and win this Final. For this reason, I give this title a very important value. “
Alberto Marcico did not hesitate. Beto knows the Bucca world like everyone else, because he analyzes it from all places: as a fan, as a former player, and if you like, as an expert on blue and gold DNA. So, when it comes to gaining the weight of the Diego Maradona Cup, he holds the scales in search of the right balance. Obviously a title that wouldn’t be enough to erase the team’s image in Brazil, Dream of the Seventh, but it was valued for a number of reasons: One of them, due to the weight of history, is for the 70th star. But so is, For the effect another slap could have had, and especially for the competition: for River and Gallardo.
– How did you experience this dedication to Buka, Beto?
I’m happy, other than the fact that the goal was the cup, and I still don’t know what happened, why I saw a team lacking energy, although not from one player, but from everyone. That’s why I say this title does not cover Wednesday, but it was necessary. Because if Buka weren’t a hero, everything would get worse.
You said River would have liked to win it …
Of course, River gave great importance to this tournament, no matter how rare it was due to the relegation issue and that, and he was unable to compete in the final. The other big teams didn’t do either, and made headlines to win. Bucca was at the head of the most difficult region. For everything, it’s a very valuable cup.
El Beto is close to Riquelme and closely follows its management.
-Why do you think this consecration is being somewhat overlooked in a river?
-River la ningunea because he didn’t win it. But the truth is, they were on vacation while Boca questioned another final. That is why the price is lowered. What happens in networks is normal. Beware, however, that Gallardo has the distinction that although he has won what he has won, he cannot achieve domestic titles.
Do you also think he helped Boca reach his competitors in national titles?
Not just because of that, but because of what I said before: Gallardo grabbed all the headlines to reach the Final and was unsuccessful. Boca played very tough matches, like Independiente, who lost 1-0 and turned upside down in four minutes. This tournament is very important because all the teams played their best. River, who played Cuba, grabbed all the headlines as well as Boca put a lot.
-And Boca won it well?
Yes, although it was a level game with Banfield, Boca played a little better and had more chances to score. I give you two more reasons why this title deserves so much: Because he did not aggravate the situation after the elimination. And because both Boca and River, to qualify for the Libertadores, want to win the local championship.
