Argentina league starts after winning the World Cup

BUENOS AIRES ( Associated Press) — Still hungry from winning the World Cup, the Argentine league kicks off this weekend with defending champions Boca Juniors seeking the first triple crown in its history and River Plate at the helm of a new coach. Has been Farewell to the successful Marcelo Gallardo.

Rosario Central and Argentina will open the first date on Friday, when Argentina are still celebrating their third World Cup win in Doha a month ago.

“We’ve already celebrated in Qatar, now it’s time to do it on our pitches,” the Professional Soccer League said on its social networks. He announced that each stadium would have a symbolic recognition of the world champions, as the only person to play locally is Rivers goalkeeper Franco Armani.

Boca, who host Atlético Tucumán on Sunday, will go into 2022 in search of a triple crown after two local titles they have clinched. Agustin Rossi will no longer defend his goal, the goalkeeper saves the decisive penalty in the recent victory. Rossi was loaned to Al-Nasr – Cristiano Ronaldo’s new club in Saudi Arabia – for six months and will then continue his career at Flamengo in Brazil.

So far, Boquenes’ only inclusion was Paraguayan defender Bruno Valdez (freed from Mexico to the US).

“It’s not easy to win two tournaments, it’s not easy to win two classics (against River). We’re happy with the squad we have, we’re calm and we’re confident”, vice-president and max model Juan Roman in response to criticism of the signings. Riquelme announced. “We know we have to play better. He’s had a very strong season. We’re not here to promise anything, but we’re going to compete.”

River ushers in a new era following the departure of multi-champion coach Marcelo Gallardo, who did not renew his contract after his contract expired. His replacement, Martin Demichelis, a former millionaire defender with extensive experience in German football, will make his official debut on Saturday in a trip to Central Cordoba.

“Hopefully the impulse to become world champion will give us a quality leap and the possibility to grow in all senses,” Demichelis reflected on the recent world title. “They must be watching us from all sides. It is expected that people will first enjoy the stadium.

Unlike his classic rival, Rivera played a strong role in the transfer market with a combination of Matias Kranwitter (from Mexico to Monterrey), Ignacio Fernández (from Brazil to Atlético Mineiro), Enzo Díaz (Teleres) and the signing of Venezuelan striker Salomon Rondon. Huh. The pass is in his possession after being released from Everton in England.

“We had a very satisfactory transfer market. The team is very good,” Demichelis said.

The third team with serious claims is Racing Club, the runners-up in the previous league, who pulled off a coup by signing other signings, including the historic Peruvian striker Paolo Guerrero. The academy will receive recently promoted Belgrano on Sunday.

Another notable foreign player who will continue his career in the World Champions League is Colombian defender Carlos “La Roca” Sánchez, who comes from Independiente Santa Fe, who will play for San Lorenzo.

The first day will end with: Defense and Justice-Storm (Friday); San Lorenzo-Arsenal, Estudiantes-Tigre and Talleres-Independiente (Saturday); Platense-Newells, Cologne-Lanus, Instituto-Sarmiento (Sunday); Barracas Central-Godoy Cruz, Banfield-Union and Velez-Gimnasia LP (Monday).
