cases

of Coronavirus,

.

In the middle, there is Argentine football, which is still going on and

the highest competition for national teams, the Copa América, which the president questioned if the infections continue.

The wave of contagions in Argentine soccer:

"All that worries me, I see objectively what happens with the Argentine teams. I see what happens in the campuses and they have not left Argentina, eh. The infections are repeated. It is nothing other than the product of being part of a society where contagions simply increase ".

Does football stop?

"We love football

. The only thing that could distract me a little more in these days of confinement was seeing Argentinos Juniors, which did not give me much satisfaction,

because it was two 0-0 and I did not enjoy them. I know that for all of them. For Argentines, soccer is a very important moment of recreation and it is a passion. But we have to act very carefully, very carefully. "

The trips of Argentine clubs in Libertadores and Sudamericana:

"The sports authorities have to act with great attention. What is happening in the Argentine soccer teams is a sample of what can happen if we also leave Argentina to play in countries where the problem is even more acute."

Doubts with the Copa América:

"I

don't want to frustrate the spectacle of the America's Cup

. What I want is for us to be very sensible and careful.

We have some time ahead to see how things evolve

and to see how we can master these kinds of problems."

"But leaving Argentina and going to play in places where infections are important ...

If it is done, all care will have to be taken.

Without leaving Argentina

the teams are having high levels of contagion, leaving Argentina everything can be worse
