Alexis Sánchez is the main concern of The Red at the start of the Qualifiers due to the complex clinical condition he suffered a few weeks ago. The Inter Milan footballer was not considered against Uruguay, but will start against Colombia.
In the framework of the discussion about whether or not Tocopillano should be a risk to the Cafeteros, Claudio Borghi revealed an anecdote he experienced as the coach of the Chilean National Team with a former striker from the Universidad de Chile Club.
“It happened to me with nine from the U, with the Argentine (nationalized Chilean): Gustavo Canales. We had a friendly match, he had a knee problem and I told him that I will not play,” Bichi began by saying to Todos Somos Técnicos, and later confessed the former striker’s reaction.
“The decision was not good for him and me, because I needed him at that moment. It affected him to such a point that he started crying,” added the commentator today on TNT Sports.
Borghi and the participation of Alexis Sánchez against Colombia
Alexis Sánchez’s clinical condition, which left him on the sidelines in La Roja’s game against Uruguay in Montevideo, is complicated, so Claudio Borghi is clear that the player’s health is a priority for Tuesday’s game.
“Even a football game is not worth a person’s health. “Alexis is an old man who can be trusted at his word when he says he is good, but there is a risk that he will not finish the game or that he will get sick, and that is more complicated,” he concluded.
La Roja will play the second match of these Qualifiers today, Tuesday, September 12, when they host Colombia at the Monumental stadium at 9:30 pm.
