"My soul hurts," he declared Diego Maradona at the end of the game in which he debuted yesterday Sunday as coach of Gymnasia y Esgrima La Plata, in which your box fell 2-1 to Racing in the sixth day of the Argentine Soccer Super League.

“My head doesn't hurt, my soul hurts. I don't think the Argentine champion (Racing) was more than us in the match.

However, the Argentine star asserted that "although my soul hurts, we have to spend this moment."

Racing “scored the goals but did not play as we have seen. He made dirty goals, but he won and there is no need to cry”, Synthesized the coach, who remarked that the fall is just a stumbling block, even though Gimnasia is last in the championship and in the relegation zone in the average table.
