The Apache received the trophy for the title that the Xeneize won eight months ago. Russo kept it thinking about the Cup and he goes for the Libertadores. “I’m splendid,” he warned.
“It is very special to raise a glass in Boca. I am happy because we were able to remember that championship that brought so much happiness to the fans. I don’t think it can be compared to another title, each season is new for me. You prepare in different ways and one is always different. It is not the same Tevez who won the first title as the one who won this one, which may be the last. This current Tevez works to be the best version. “The word is, obviously, Carlos Tevez, the captain of Boca, who before the game against Lanús had the pleasure of lifting that trophy that he won with his teammates in the extinct Super League then a remarkable final sprint in which they left Marcelo Gallardo’s River empty-handed.
Everyone wanted to take a picture with Carlos Tevez. And not only the Boca fans, his teammates too: once Claudio Chiqui Tapia handed the captain the trophy and the general celebrations were over, it was several players who asked him to pose the 10 with them and the Cup. Eduardo Salvio, Sebastián Villa, his friend Ramón Abila and Esteban Andrada, among others.
That Carlitos said that the Superliga, his 10th achievement in Boca and 28th in his career (which makes it the third most winning Argentine of the world in activity behind Lucho Gonzalez (29) and a certain Lionel Messi (36), may be the last, is strong. Sounds loud.
But it is nothing more than reality and what goes through the head of a player who lives day to day knowing that they are the last of his career and that, although he has goals ahead, he focuses on the present and, as he often repeats indoors, on just playing the next game.
And if his phrase sounds even louder, it is because he said it not only in the middle of an awards ceremony, but also with the Libertadores ahead. Yes actually, Miguel Angel Russo He did not even concentrate it for this match with Lanús because in the first leg of the eighth of the Cup against Inter de Porto Alegre (on 11/25 in Porto Alegre) he wants to have one hundred percent of the forward who is his pillar And that since that football resumed after the stoppage due to the pandemic, he has already had seven games and four goals.
“The truth is that I prefer to play before training, running and doing everything there is to do, heh”joked Tevez that was not part of the concentrates for the game against Lanús. And he continued: “You have to let the boys add minutes, that players like Mauro (Zárate) and Wancho (Abila) have filming because we need everyone. Besides, it is good to stop a little, especially because of my age, although I feel very good. I am splendid “
Also, Carlitos said that “As soon as we renewed the contract in Boca, I started to work to continue at this level” and that “the effort I made makes the scene different today.”
