There is no greater pride for a footballer than to be called to the national team, something that not only benefits his career but also brings future revenue for the club that covers him. A mutual win.
In Colombia, there is no doubt that Atlético Nacional is one of the teams that contributes the most to the national team, an example of this being the recent calls by Aldair Quintana, Yerson Candelo, Andrés Andrade and Baldomero Perlaza.
Moreover, for the duels of this triple day in October, the purslane team was the only team in the country that contributed players to Reinaldo Rueda (Candelo and Quintana).
Just about this important achievement, Alejandro Restrepo gave his opinion on ESPN’s ‘Divided Ball’ program. The coach assured that for the green country it will always be vital to provide pieces for all categories of the National Team.
“We have considered how important it is for the institution to have players in all teams. We have always supported the selection processes in a very good way, not only in the Major League, which we have had numerous calls, but also in the U-20 or U-17 teams, “he said.
Likewise, he rescued that Nacional “contributes many players” and in that sense each of them arrive “with a very good level and very good quality.”
As mentioned above, the current leader of the BetPlay League 2021-II has two players with the Major, a few months ago he contributed five for the U-20 and two for the U-17.
