Apparently more established in his role as brand new coach, Mascherano commented that he treats his players “to make them understand that they are here for their own merits. And personally I am enjoying all this a lot, going through a process that is new for me in which what I try to do is help the boys, who are good footballers, so that they can later improve themselves.”

What we also try is to manage the group so that all the players have minutes according to the physical recovery of each one.“, he specified. “And it must also be said that the support of the public in Santiago del Estero was very important in these two games and we are sure that in San Juan on Friday with the New Zealanders the same will happen“, he completed.
