Insúa spoke about the Gattoni case and warned: "I'm still not angry"


The San Lorenzo coach referred to the defender's trip to Europe. Are you still your captain?

Despite the victorious debut, the week did not start calmly in San Lorenzo since on Sunday night it was learned that

Federico Gattoni

, one of the most important promises and realities of the Cyclone, was on a trip to Europe without authorization from the club to solve a personal issue around his possible landing on the Old Continent in this pass market.

Of course, in Boedo they did not take this unforeseen trip in a good way and they are already taking action on the matter.

The main issue is that the central defender is in negotiations with the Raven to renew his contract, which expires in June this year, and the fear that he will go free is latent.

Taking into account the trend that has become more and more popular where players put pressure on clubs and hope to go free early in the Gasometer they are more than attentive to this issue and await his return.

This Monday, Gattoni did not show up for training and the novel continues.

For this reason, Rubén Darío Insúa is authorized to speak on this subject and he did so in an interview with Equipo


The Cyclone coach was calm despite everything and gave an overview of what is happening.

At the beginning of the interview, Oscar Ruggeri went directly to DT and asked directly about this case.

"I would separate the issue into two parts.

First, the week before, he is in negotiations with the club to renew the contract, he spoke to me and told me that he had decided to accept the club's offer and that in the course of this week he was going to sign the agreement with San Lorenzo

. That is point number one.

Now he called me and told me that he was going to travel because they had to give him his passport. I cannot give him the authorization because that is not my power, he has to resolve that the leadership of the club

", explained Insúa.

Continuing with the interview,

the Gallego was cautious, almost optimistic with the whole situation, maintaining his characteristic composure and leaving hope that this issue will be resolved in the best way



I'm still not angry because he had told me that he was going to sign the contract this week, in case that happens, the part that he let me know will have been fulfilled

. First that he can settle with the club and the issue of a transfer or not, that will be decided by him and the club, now or in the middle of the season", he confessed.

Finally, Insúa made clear the importance of the 23-year-old footballer for his squad by forcefully answering two specific questions.


Do you have him? Yes

. Is he your captain? "The other day he was the captain, yes.

Let's hope they can solve it, there are a number of factors."

Sevilla wants Gattoni

In the midst of all this conflict over the renewal or not of Federico Gattoni with San Lorenzo, an offer appeared that could complicate things.

It is that last week a supposed interest from Sevilla arose that, according to what they said, would offer a million and a half dollars to buy it.

However, an official offer only appeared this Monday, but for just 1,200,000 euros gross


In the midst of a hot climate due to his untimely trip, in Boedo they did not even hesitate: they

rejected the proposal, even running the risk that he would go free in the middle of the year


To make matters worse, as Olé found out, in Seville they rule out the possibility of signing Gattoni in this recess and even deny that the club has made an offer
