Russo: "The VAR is not at the level of the Libertadores"


Boca's coach broke the silence after the scandalous elimination against Mineiro and said: "In Brazil we feel a hostile climate, but we defended ourselves from attacks."

He let the foam go down, took his time to chew the anger of the elimination of the Copa Libertadores and called a press conference, via Zoom, to tell his feelings after the robbery suffered by Boca against Atlético Mineiro.

Miguel Russo

, respectful as always, went to the bone and did not hesitate:

"We had adverse failures and we believe that the VAR is not up to international competition. It hurt us, but we were up to it."

The Xeneize coach, isolated like the entire delegation that was in Belo Horizonte, did not keep silent and added:

"We did not break the health bubble, even if someone says yes, and we stayed 12 hours on top of a bus to respect everything ".

Regarding the incidents that occurred after the game, Miguel also expressed his opinion and was sorry for the image they left.

However, he defended his own and said:

"The images they show are not the real ones, because they say that we attacked and the matter was the other way around. We defended ourselves. In Brazil we have felt a hostile climate since we arrived. I apologize to the people. de Boca because we cannot fight from any point of view. But I clarify something: we defended ourselves, we did not attack anyone first. "

The only question he avoided was whether or not they will present the team against Banfield and San Lorenzo, but before saying goodbye he emphasized the mistakes that hurt Boca as rarely seen in the Cup:

"When we lose, we take care of our mistakes. But this was something else, too many mistakes to suffer in a knockout round. "
