Manager Aguirre Gives in to the Pressure

Posted by atleti on August 15, 2007


Good news, fellow Colchoneros! Sergio ‘kun’ Aguero will play in the starting 11 tomorrow (UEFA qualifer) after much pressure from the media (particularly in Argentina) and supporters (although Aguirre claims it was a rumour that he wasn’t considering including Aguero to the lineup). In any case,  Many– including myself– feel relieved that the young Argentine has earned a spot alongside Diego Forlan after his fine form during the U-20 World Cup. I’m very happy with this decision.

Brasilian midfielder Cléber Santana is–as mentioned below– the only new player who hasn’t played for the club.


Leo Franco, Abbiati

Seitaridis, Eller, Perea, Pablo, Antonio Lopez, Pernia

Luccin, Raul Garcia, Maniche, Maxi, Jurado

Forlan, Luis Garcia, Sergio Aguero, Reyes, Simao.

Aguirre on tomorrow’s clash:

It will be nice to go into the second leg with a cushion. It is important not to concede, and then try to create chances, make our quality show at the other end.

However, we must always remember that this is about 180 minutes, and not 90.

Aupa Atleti! Let’s win comfortably.
