And suddenly, everything came crashing down. Too bad Not only on contract but also in sports. Because the explosive meeting in which no agreement was reached on the renewal of Agustin Rossi’s ties with Boca could have immediate football consequences. Which one? for now, That the goalkeeper be removed from the team and no longer save against the platens. At least, that’s a possibility: no one can guarantee today that he will be the starting goalkeeper at Bombonera on Saturday.
Well, in the last game that Boca played at home, Temple expressed himself about the situation the goalkeeper is experiencing with the club and He was given his popular support with a standing ovation. How would you react now if you didn’t see it going against the platens from the start? Will you accept the decision of Riquelme and his council if Agustin eventually leaves the team?
The remedy, at some point, should not come as a surprise. The council has, at some point, been giving this type of message to those who do not agree on continuity with the club. This last happened with Cristian Pavan, who did not play at all this year, until he arrived on 30 June and became independent for Atlético Mineiro. And the same thing is happening with Agustin Almendra, who warned that he would not accept any offer from Boca to renew his bond (which expires in June 2023) and therefore, he would make it to the First Division. Won’t even pick up.
The talk with Rossi, goes down the same path. At Boca he understands that he has made the goalkeeper the best possible offer and Agustin has shown he does not want to stay at the club by not accepting it. Therefore, from now on, He needs to start giving consistency to the goalkeepers who will be a part of the future. For this reason, on Saturday, it is not ruled out that Javi Garcia is the starter (he will also have to renew as his own bond expires in December, although this will not be a problem) and Leandro Bray goes to the bank. .

River’s leadership acted, in this sense, in the cases of Benjamin Rollheiser and Fabrizio Angileri as well, Those who went directly to off-campus training after the negotiations for their respective renewals were over. Neither of them, until their release on June 30, returned to play in Milo.

Now, all this could happen while Rossi still has one year left on his contract until June 2023. That is, it is not that the goalkeeper now leaves the institution in three months, when the championship is over. He still has a lot of time in the club. Then, is this the way? Is this the way forward in front of a management that may have yet another window of conversation? In any case, it will be necessary to see how this story is resolved over the week, if Rossi is eventually called to the platens or not. But it is clear that, like many others, it will not be the decision of the DT (in this specific case, Ibarra).
Important days are coming in this regard. And it will also be necessary to see how, if a situation “similar” to Izquierdos’ situation arises, how the squad reacts, after clashes over prizes are wiped out (up to the point that he had to leave the club). If Rossi doesn’t save against the Plattes, how much will he weigh in the team? For now, the captain’s departure has broken ties with the council, which still has an impact on Boca’s football journey. Thus, it is not hard to imagine that another episode of this type would not bode well in the interior climate.
