The relationship will change. This precept of "we are rivals within the court, but outside we have to be together", was forgotten. Even the slogan "Rivals, not enemies" is impressive. When that happens and the Copa Libertadores final is a souvenir, can hardly go back. At least if for a while the protagonists are in and out of the field, both Rio and Boca. The crack has deepened and is very open. between the two most important clubs in Argentina.
Marcelo Gallardo did not hide the anger he had last Sunday, after River defeated Gymnastics in the Monumental for the Super League. At the press conference after the meeting, he was careful to say things he felt. Even he publicly admitted that "Do not try to tell me things I do not want or say."
You could say that the doll was angry. "This generated discomfort that no one in Boca thanked publicly for his gesture of solidarity. Not even Guilherme with whom he has a cordial and respectful relationship, "a source close to the staff said Clarin.
Gallardo himself was the first in the River who made it clear on Saturday (24) that he would not play if there were no level playing field. And then when the Boca team left the visiting team and went on the field, a time after the suspension of the final, the millionaire DT left to greet the rival players and ask how they were. He also spoke for a while with Gustavo Barros Schelotto.
Gallardo has a cordial relationship with the twins. And respect. With Guillermo he shared calls on the national team and from there there was good vibes. They showed this in all the previous greetings in the Superclassics that they faced from 2016 to here.
And the twin? Close to the coach of Boca say that he does not maintain any anger with the River's coach. And others comment that not only the coach, but the rest of the technical team and the team are surprised. "River plays a victim role when the assailants are us. We just wanted to play a football game and we were not there to do it on Saturday or Sunday from the suspensions," he said. Clarin a source of bunker xeneize.
Gallardo's anger is in some Boca players, especially Carlos Tevez and Wanchope Abila. As this newspaper has been able to find out, the attackers – who are also friends – xeneizam, are upset because they say he went to greet them with a River photographer next. Y They attribute the gesture of solidarity to a "staging".
Crack also hit the players. And that was in evidence. Tevez, in the Monumental ring on Saturday 24, went out to complain against the River's players, accusing them of not being supportive. Although a few days later, his partner Pablo Perez admitted that Ignacio Scocco and Milton Casco, whom he knows from Newell, wrote him messages.
Leonardo Ponzio, arriving in Madrid, was blunt. "We sympathize with the players of Boca and we would be again because it is part of the ideology of our group, and I will not add anything to what has already been said." On River's campus fell Tevez's statements very badly and also those of Darío Benedetto ("Nobody wrote me anything and in the six hours that we were in the dressing room, none appeared"). "Some are very hot," They claimed the millionaire bunker.
What will happen inside the court? Spirits are heated, but both teams are focused on playing a final in which there will be a champion of the Copa Libertadores, which nonetheless is a football game. And that by the violence and the controversial decision of the Conmebol moved to Santiago Bernabéu, the stadium of Real Madrid.
Here in the Spanish capital many wonder why they did not do a joint action between the two clubs to refuse to come here and that the game will be played in Argentina. How could this situation occur if Rodolfo D & # 39; Onofrio and Daniel Angelici accused themselves of traitors? Although both have agreed to meet for a television show at this time, it is impossible to believe them. The facts are in sight.
