The defeat against Nacional marked the end of the positive streak that the coach had, who highlighted his team.
It could have been a Racing victory. It was not. In the revival of the Academia In the Copa Libertadores, at the Cilindro de Avellaneda, Nacional from Uruguay won 1-0 and ended with Sebastián Beccacece undefeated in ten games at the head of the team, but not with the “pride” that the coach feels for his team .
“I do not leave aside the result, but I have a feeling of tranquility by how the team performed. I am proud to feel represented by this team and I am sure that people also feel that way “, said the DT, who reaped his first defeat as a Racing manager in 11 games.
And it was just the day that the return of the Argentine teams to the competition was made official, after more than six months of standing due to the coronavirus pandemic.
“The bottom line is that we have a team totally committed to the cause, to the idea. That beyond all the imponderables that he had to go through today, with a disputed sanction (the penalty given to Nacional by Martínez’s hand and that Bergessio changed for the only goal of the game) and an expulsion, I also understand unfair, He knew how to recover and with one less he fought until the end“said DT.
“He showed a remarkable superiority in the first half, with many favorable situations to convert and with a moving display of the boys throughout,” added Beccacece.
And to ratify his idea, he closed: “I am proud to be part of this group that is always contagious and exciting, even in painful moments such as defeat,” he said.
