His environment slides that he could give up at the end of the year. The fans will be mobilized on Sunday to the Avellaneda headquarters.
The results always rule. So, the good intentions of Racing de Sebastián Beccacece do not matter. Neither possession, nor precision in passing, nor shots per game, all items that he dominates. The ball does not fit. And the three defeats in the Professional League Cup re-lit the fuse of an intern that had been extinguished with the quarantine. Just a few days after the duel with Flamengo for the Libertadores. Diego Milito is angry with some leaders. And the threat of slamming the door, agitated from its own environment, mobilized all the actors of the celestial and white world. Especially the fans.
Yesterday, without going any further, a group of partners requested a referendum for the Board of Directors to consult the affiliates regarding the situation of the technical secretary and the continuity of the sports project. Did it through the platform change.org. And even a march is being called for Sunday 22, the number of the shirt with which the Prince shone during his last days in Racing, when he returned from Europe and won the title. It will be at the Avellaneda headquarters. On social media, the hashtag #MilitoNoSeVa it was a trend.
“If Milito leaves, it is a scandal”he told Clarion a person who knows the internal politics of Racing. Aware of this situation, Vice President Alfredo Chiodini approached the club to chat with him. He also exchanged WhatsApp messages with Daniel García, member in charge of the press area. They are trying to convince him not to resign at the end of the year, as he did transcend his inner circle.
Milito is much more than a hierarchical employee of the club. It is an idol and it became a boomerang for Victor Blanco. The manager had wanted to resign in December of last year, when the leaders rejected the arrival of Beccacece. His stumble in Independiente was making noise and many were opposed. In the end, he ended up weighing Diego Alberto’s position. It was a battle won.
Even so, before the Avellaneda classic, there was a meeting with Vice President Miguel Jiménez and leader Roberto Torres. Some differences were settled. Racing beat its red neighbor with nine footballers, qualified for the Libertadores next year and, isolation through, the conflict fell asleep.
Until football resumed and the short circuits were refloated. The arrival of Miguel Gomis, a man imposed by Milito, generated risks with Adrián Fernández, president of the Amateur Football Department. The relationship is strained. Blanco wants to bring positions closer and Fernández says he is willing to dialogue. The manager, for now, does not want to know anything.
And the straw that broke the camel’s back was the refusal he received to incorporate Jorge Rodríguez, Banfield’s midfielder. Milito wanted Cork to alleviate the absences of Marcelo Díaz and Mauricio Martínez, both operated on the menisci in the right knee. Blanco met with the leaders of the Drill. The price they asked for the pass was unaffordable for the budget of the Academia.
The president believes that this situation is due to a strictly political issue. “I am not screwed”, he tells his closest people. His wish is to renew his mandate in the December elections. And then Milito Presidente? It will be seen.
