Federico Del Rio
June arrived and many local soccer players are on their way to being free. The 30th is the day of the end of the links and in the case of River there is a situation that still has no definition. While last week Marcelo Gallardo contacted Enrique Bologna and Germán Lux to tell them both that he wants them to renew to remain part of the squad, Ignacio Scocco still owes a response . In the case of Nacho, the intention of the coaching staff and the leadership is already known regarding continuity, but the one who did not respond was the striker.
With his bond close to expiring, Scocco was left in the dilemma between leaving River without being able to say goodbye on the court or extend it for a while longer, and thus, delay his return to Newell's a club in which he already stated that you want to end your career. Of course, in Rosario they await you with open arms. The leaders and several players from the squad have already said so. However, Nacho has not winked so far for either club . What's more, he responded to both in the same way on Twitter when official accounts greeted him on his birthday.
One of the possibilities they imagine in Núñez is that the striker proposes to sign for six months taking advantage of the exception that the AFA agreed with with Argentinian Footballers Members so that contracts that are due until the end of the year can be extended, Given the peculiarity of the parate due to the Covid-19 pandemic. That would allow him to re-dress the River shirt and say goodbye playing the club of which he is a fan and with whom he gave five Olympic laps (Copa Libertadores 2018, Supercopa Argentina 2018, Recopa 2019 and Copa Argentina 2017 and 2019), before returning to Newell's.
Scocco was one of the reinforcements that Gallardo added to River for the second part of the Copa Libertadores 2017, in which he reached the semifinals, where he was eliminated by Lanús. In three years, he played 90 games and scored 38 goals many exquisite and as many vital ones as the five in the win against Wilsterman or the ones that he scored against Boca, in the final of the Argentine Super Cup and in the Bonbonniere.
