Gonzalo Quesada, rugby coach: “For me, the polo replaces the shrink! "


The Stade Français coach, ambassador of the Polo Rider Cup, talks about his passion for this sport and the fervor he meets in his native Argentina.

LE FIGARO. - How is the Polo Rider Cup, this new competition, original?


. - Being an ambassador for this competition is an honor. Even though my schedule is very busy with rugby, as soon as I have half a day in front of me, I come to Chantilly, or around Paris, to play polo. This new competition is original insofar as it opposes clubs, which is not usual. It is the only tournament in the world where there are 12 clubs from 8 different countries. This is a first for clubs to compete in this competition format.

Do you know the Argentinian players who come to France?

There are a lot of Argentinian players in teams around the world, not just Argentinian teams.

I know several.

Polo is a very popular sport in Argentina.

So there are a lot of very good players.

It is therefore not a surprise to find, for example, Argentinian players in German clubs.
