Former striker Esteban “Bichi” Fuertes raised his doubts this Friday regarding the sanction that River Plate should receive, who did not appear to play against Atlético Tucumán for the first date of the Super League Cup before isolation was decreed by the Covid-19, and wondered “if they will get points like Columbus”.
“Will they get points from River like they did from Colón? I want to see what happens to River because Colón got points -in 2013 when he did not appear before Atlético de Rafaela due to conflict with his players-. Football must be even for everyone “Fuertes warned in dialogue with Jogo Bonito.
The scorer played for both teams: he is one of the emblems of Colón and he was champion with River in the Clausura 2003 tournament, an experience that he described as “magnificent”.
Harsh statements against the leadership of Colón and unionized footballers
The ‘Bichi’ also lashed out at the Sabalero club: “I gave them a hand for a month and a half – he led five games in 2018 when DT Eduardo Domínguez left – but then they offered me to be a collaborator instead of being a manager,” he said.
“They asked me for help with the promise of becoming a manager. I felt used, that’s why I left,” said the person who passed through Derby County in England and Tenerife in Spain, among others.
With regard to the determination of the Argentine Football Association, among other points, to suspend the declines for two seasons, Fuertes was critical of the colonial leadership, arguing that “the declines are removed, but not the averages, and in that Colon is wrong as a result of mismanagement, “he said.
“You had to make changes and they did not make them so the club is like this. When they are capricious, the results are not seen on the field,” he said.
Nor was the leadership of Argentinian Soccer Players saved, who, faced with the disagreement caused with the leadership of the clubs and the players themselves, the ‘Bichi’ lashed out: “The union never did anything. They use the players when it suits them. It is all a Fuck. ”
