Martin Demichelis Sparks Debate with Comments on River Coach’s Defensive Strategy: Boca Legends Come to Defense

“I’m not going to get into the analysis of the rival, I don’t usually do it. I respect and appreciate Diego Martínez… but if as River’s coach I finish the game with seven defenders, I’m probably not respecting the history of the club.” Martín Demichelis’ most resonant phrase after the 1-1 draw between Millonario and field at the same time Luis Advíncula, Cristian Lema, Jorge Figal, Lautaro Blanco, Lucas Blondel, Nicolás Valentini and Frank Fabra.

Surprised by the situation, two historic players who wore the blue and gold jersey and were champions with the institution came out in defense of the xeneize coach: Carlos Navarro Montoya, former goalkeeper who won the 1992 Apertura, and Cristian Traverso, midfielder from the glorious Carlos Bianchi Era.

El Mono, who is celebrating his birthday today, faced his questioning regarding the “betrayal” of colleagues committed by the former defender of the Argentine National Team. “It was an unfortunate sentence, he hugged him and stabbed him afterwards. That’s not done. You don’t do that with a colleague. If you start praising Martínez later you can’t say what you said,” he noted on the ESPN screen, where he participates in one of the programs.

Days ago, the former Nueva Chicago goalkeeper had once again positioned himself in the controversy by offering his opinion on the current situation of Frank Fabra, who played a few minutes in the second half of the Superclásico. “Fabra should play. He is the best 3 that Boca has. Let him face his relationship with the fan. Fabra has to go through purgatory like the great Boca players have to go through,” he said.

Returning to the debate regarding the River coach’s sentence, Cristian Traverso also came out to cross it and support the Boca coach’s approach. In this sense, he recalled that he can also go out and win with defensive players and that it is not only a way to protect the tie that he had obtained in the middle of the complement. “I remind the antis that we won that Cup with seven of them,” he wrote in one of his Instagram stories, accompanied by a photo of the team that won the 2001 Libertadores.

Indeed, the former steering wheel’s memory did not fail him. The formation that the Viceroy used in the second leg final against Cruz Azul included Hugo Ibarra, Jorge Bermúdez, Aníbal Matellán, Clemente Rodríguez, Javier Villarreal, Mauricio Chicho Serna and Traverso himself. The first players classified as “purely offensive” appear only in the last stretch of the playing field: Juan Román Riquelme, Walter Gaitán and Marcelo Delgado.
