Juan Román Riquelme is characterized by being a person who does not keep anything to himself and who says everything he thinks. He doesn’t flinch when he has to talk about the eternal rival and has repeatedly praised Gallardo’s River (especially before taking over as vice president).
In a new interview, the Boca idol was asked about who is the best Argentine soccer player and surprised with his answer. “Today I have to tell our nine (in reference to Darío Benedetto), but Julián Alvarez was the last semester without a doubt the best“he declared in dialogue with ESPN.
On the other hand, he spoke about the situation of Sebastián Villa and they asked him if they were looking to transfer him. “We don’t go on TV to say who is for sale. We understand your work, talking every day. He is a very important player for our club, as are many. If you get offers to loan or they offer you two mangoes, would you let it go? We have had to endure all summer that they said that we rejected offers for Pavón and nobody came to buy it,” he added.
Lastly, he referred to Facundo Farías and his performance at the Bombonera. “He plays well. It cost him a lot in the first half because our right-back attacked a lot. In the second he felt more comfortable. Let’s hope he continues to grow, he’s a good soccer player,” he said.
