Regarding his arrival at the Express, he said: “I met a group that is physically and technically very well. It was a bold decision for Godoy Cruz.”

“I think there are moments and games. There are circumstances where party strategies can be negotiated,” he added.

He also considers that Argentine football is below the level it deserves: “The football DNA is there, but in the amount of resources to develop we are down. At the investment level we are very far from Brazil. This is a country that could be a little more above”.
