A decision. A reaction. A bomb that would one day explode in the locker room of San Lorenzo. And it happened in Córdoba. The Cyclone left the Kempes with a much bigger problem than Saturday's 1-0 defeat with Workshops. Angry faces and widespread malaise were brought on the plane by a new round between the Romero brothers and Diego Monarriz.
Everything happened at halftime. The coach decided to make a tactical change and told Oscar Romero that he should leave for the entry of Ramón Arias. Putting together a line of five men (the scheme that gave Monarriz the most) was the idea. But Ángel Romero did not hold on and went to the crossing of the DT. Ahead of all demanded explanations of the modification.
They say that the moment was tense. There was a spicy crossing. When Angel left the field to play the second 45 minutes, a team member warned him that no, that he should sit on the bench because Monarriz had also taken him out to enter Adolfo Gaich (who was originally going to enter through Nicolás Fernández).
The Paraguayans, then, stayed in the visiting room. The final defeat deepened the anger. The post game was silent, but with a sharp climate. There were no statements to the press. While they waited for Gino Peruzzi to do his thing in the anti-doping control, Monarriz got off the bus and spoke on the phone (with Marcelo Tinelli?) Then, there was a talk between the coach and the three members of the technical secretariat: Hugo Tocalli, Leandro Romagnoli and Alberto Acosta.

The president followed everything by phone. He is aware of what happened, but wants to talk face to face with the protagonists of a conflict that is not new. That is why Tinelli plans to go to the Sports City on Monday to join the coach and the Romero.
Will there be disciplinary sanctions? "Not acting hot is the premise, let's evaluate," Clarin was told from the leadership. Of course, most in the club of Boedo agree that "as a club we can not accept or allow disrespect for any part of professional football . " And the twins crossed a limit. "It is inadmissible," another important leadership voice was blunt.
The relationship between the DT and the Romero had a first short circuit last month when in a practice they discussed why the father-in-law of one of the Guarani players had sat comfortably in the bench of the substitutes, a place strictly reserved for the coaching staff and the campus.
They are the stars of San Lorenzo. And while they have good deeds such as visiting the pension boys and making themselves available to collaborate, on the other hand, attributions are taken that arouse several annoyance inside the locker room. They say that to Rosario, to face Newell's, the delegation was going to go by bus, but they ended up going on a charter flight at the request of the fantastic twins .
Monarriz saw his authority challenged this time. Tinelli will try to reconcile between the parties. But it seems that something ended up splitting in Córdoba.
They will ask that Juan Ramírez get the red one
The arbitration of Ariel Penel left the leaders of San Lorenzo very angry. Beyond the low level of the team and football shortcomings, they did not like the judge's decisions before Workshops, especially the expulsion of Juan Ramírez for double yellow. The referee had shown him the first card in the wrong way since that of the infraction in that action had clearly been Alejandro Donatti. The second warning was correct, although that should have been the first. However, the steering wheel was thrown. For this reason, from the Board of Directors they confirmed to Clarín that they prepare a presentation to make in AFA and request that Ramírez's suspension be canceled.
Uvita Fernández's injury
The biggest concern for these hours in San Lorenzo is in the injury of Nicolás Fernández. The preliminary diagnosis speaks of a "severe sprain" in the left knee, but it is not ruled out that he has suffered a torn ligament. They will study this Monday. They will also examine Ramón Arias, who suffered severe trauma to his right knee and might have compromised meniscus.
