Battaglia stopped his first team and is already thinking about Board of Trustees

The departure of Miguel Ángel Russo is already behind us. The head, now, stares at Patronato. Because the new times of Boca are already underway and this Wednesday they had their first football approach: Sebastián Battaglia, new xeneize coach, tried a team for the first time, in morning practice in Ezeiza, and set up a training cwith the youthful Luis Vázquez as a forward striker to receive the Entre Ríos team on Saturday.

One day after his inauguration in charge of the men’s first team and on his second day of work with the campusThe man who holds the highest number of titles won with the club as a player stopped his possible eleven. DT formed with Agustín Rossi; Luis Advíncula, Carlos Izquierdoz, Marcos Rojo and Frank Fabra; Cristian Medina, Jorman Campuzano and Juan Ramírez; Norberto Briasco, Luis Vázquez and Cristian Pavón. In addition, he later introduced the following changes: Marcelo Weingandt for Advíncula, Agustín Sandez for Fabra, Alan Varela for Campuzano and Aaron Molinas for Briasco.

Although at the moment it is a trial in the process of developing the training that the first Battaglia firm will carry, there would be a name practically confirmed to receive the entrerriano team: Vázquez, as the center of the attack. It happens that the 20-year-old footballer is the only nine available that the coach has; the other is Nicolás Orsini, who joined this semester, but is injured and has one more week to recover.

Vazquez, scorer of the Reserve when Battaglia directed it, He already played from the beginning in this tournament in the draws against Unión and against Argentinos Juniors, both by 1-1. The youth, the first name that knows for sure facing Saturday’s game, will have several reasons for the next to be a special day: in addition to putting his body into the transition of the new Boca, the curiosity is that His home club is precisely the Board of Trustees, from where he arrived in 2019 in exchange for $ 400,000 for 60% of his record. In addition, he was close to leaving, after in recent days the Boavista de Portugal showed interest in making a loan, with a high charge and a purchase option that was finally rejected by the football secretariat directed by Juan Román Riquelme.

The truth is that, while the new football cycle is underway, the leadership will continue in search of a center forward: The team has the possibility of incorporating a player after the loan of the youth defender Balthazar Bernardi to the Akritas Chlorakas of Cyprus. Boca has time until August 31 to incorporate a player and again he would charge for Franco Di Santo, an attacker from San Lorenzo, whom he sought two months ago but the salary that the striker was asking for was very high.

Beloved for the memory of his image as a footballer in the center of the field, Battaglia now faces his new role with the diver on. He already said that Boca deserves to be the protagonist. He already stopped his first eleven in a rehearsal. He has some work left with the squad, but not too much, towards the first challenge. The one in which, as an official trainer, he meets again with the Bombonera and begins to familiarize himself with the pulsations of his new position. The one who won the most as a player, in his debut as DT, will have exactly that motivation for Saturday: to win, something that Boca has not achieved for ten games.
