Angelici: Bianchi will continue in charge
Boca Juniors President, Daniel Angelici, said yesterday, in the preview of the Superderby against arch rival River Plate, that coach carlos “Bianchi will continue in charge of the team unless he decides to quit” and supported him saying that he will stay no matter if he does not win the title.
“We keep supporting Bianchi,” said the chairman. “We are organizing the next pre-season with Bianchi. He will continue unless he decides to quit.”
Angelici added that the trained “receives an ovation from the whole stadium every time the team plays at home, although the results aren’t the best.”
Also, he talked about the continuity of captain Juan Román Riquleme and Fernando Gago, two of the main players in the squad.
“We don’t know what’s gonna happen with Román (Riquelme). He did not speak to him about his continuity yet. We’ll meet after the end of the tournament and then we’ll take a decision. He has won 14 titles with the club. He’s an idol and I cannot see him playing in any other club.”
About Gago, the president said that he is a special player and has a three-year contract.
In yesterday’s training session, forward Juan Manuel Martínez was part of the first team and replaced youngster Luciano Acosta.
To face River at La Bombonera on Sunday, the coach will probably use: Agustín Orión; Hernán Grana, Daniel Díaz, Juan Forlín, Emanuel Insúa; Gago, Cristian Erbes, Juan Manuel Sánchez Miño; Riquelme; Martínez and Emmanuel Gigliotti.
Meanwhile, River coach Ramón Díaz practiced with the team that will face Boca with Colombian Teófilo Gutiérrez and Ramiro Funes Mori among the first team players. This way, Gutiérrez would take Daniel Villalva’s place and Funes Mori will replace Osmar Ferreyra.
