Gabriel Milito gave a strong response to Riquelme's opinion about the game in Argentine soccer


Boca's vice president had stated that 'no one plays nice' and DT, without arguing, praised his Argentinos Juniors and others from the Professional League, although he clarified that he respects everyone's sayings.

-What do you think about what Riquelme said, that no Argentine team plays well.


I think our team plays well.

I am very satisfied with the performance in these first four games, I am happy with how we compete, with how we play and how we give meaning to the game through possession of the ball and how we generate attacks from there.

I'm happy with how we dominated our rivals with the ball, I'm happy with how we defend, because it's also a very important part of playing well.

A team that attacks and doesn't defend isn't going anywhere.

I respect everyone's opinion.

My opinion is that, that Argentinos play well.

Thus, in the press conference after the 3-0 loss against Belgrano,

Gabriel Milito

gave his point of view and praised his team's play when asked about Román's statements last week.

In reality, the current vice-president of Boca did not speak of "playing well" but of "playing nicely", two different concepts.

What Riquelme said

After the great victory against Belgrano, in which both Argentinos and their rival ended up with ten players due to the expulsions of Redondo and Rébola, Milito once again gave a magisterial press conference from the conceptual point of view, with the exhaustive and detailed analysis that he usually provides from each party.

He thus explained the triumph:

"Ten against ten I think that the domain was completely ours.

The team today was very bright because we were able to associate very well, we moved a team that few teams up to now have moved as we did,

we had precision, arrivals, the goals... it is to congratulate the players for the effort they made. When we were down one, they had the personality to play. We dominated the game not only from the territorial but also with the ball, which is our forte. Victory is deserved and the reward for effort was reflected in the result.Argentinos played with great courage and mastery to reach the rival goal.

Our idea and our thoughts is to invite the players to go around.

We have shown it in these two and a half years that we have been together.

When we are able to dominate the game with the ball is when we generally win,"

he said.

Regarding what Riquelme said and his position on "Argentinos playing well", the Marshal mentioned other Argentine soccer teams: "

Racing plays well. River is in a new process, Martín (Demichelis) has just arrived but plays well Tigre plays well. Arsenal, with their new coach, plays well. If you watch the game in Rosario and analyze the first goal he scored...

Against Racing he had to lose but the first three games he played well. At least for my taste Then it's like everything else, there's the debate about what it means to play well and that's where everyone's taste comes in. In my way of seeing football, the teams I named play well for me. And I put Argentines in those teams. And I'm probably forgetting a few more."

In what he did share with Riquelme, with whom he has a very good relationship, is that the stoppage of these three months (with the World Cup in the middle) influences so that some teams are still not at their best level.

"Yes, it is true that with the passing of the dates, the teams are going to loosen up more and more because there was a very important stoppage of three months without competing and we know that the competition improves you. With the passage of time, the level

goes to grow from all the teams but there are some that have a very strong identity, which are the ones I mentioned before".
