Since Lionel Scaloni mentioned that he liked La Bombonera so that the Argentina National Team would be local in the Eliminatory debate was opened. The coach explained that he liked his team to feel the heat of the fans and the controversy flared up because he did not name Monumental . However, he later clarified that the River court is also under consideration.
This Tuesday, Scaloni spoke again on the subject and made a revelation: His children became fans of River . "If I had to tell the truth … When I went to see the final of River of the Argentine Cup in Mendoza I took my children of four and eight years. And they became River ", said the technical director of the selected team.
And he clarified again: "What I said about the field is not about a t-shirt or encouragement. I am not like that. I am not to disunite. I only spoke of the heat of the public, of bringing people together. It was a response from the one that became a ball. But in no way did I want to disrespect the people of River ".
Finally, Scaloni asked to stop arguing about it. "I prefer to let the topic pass. I hope that what you meant is understood now," he concluded in the interview with TyC Sports.
