Carlos Tevez, captain and benchmark for Boca Juniors, lamented the elimination against River Plate and not being able to reach the final of the Copa Libertadores, although he highlighted his pride in being the captain of this xeneize squad.
“It is proud to see the farewell of the people because not all fans when they lose to their classic rival and are left out have the greatness of saying goodbye on their feet. So it makes me proud to be the captain and fan of Boca," Tevez said at a press conference.
"Not reaching a goal at this club causes a lot of talk and it's normal. I think the fan felt identified and it's a shame not to have been able to give him joy, ”he added.
“Today with the result against us you can talk about many things. Today in the game we had to go out and look for the result and it is very difficult to make an analysis when you lose. There are no reproaches and I am proud of this team”, expressed the emblematic player xeneize.
Regarding his feelings after suffering another elimination against River, "el Apache" said: "The sensations of whether I am touched or not are sad for not being able to reach the final but I am proud of the team that left everything on the field and then of the game we were able to hug. People also saw that and that's why they applauded the team”.
“In the first half we lacked precision in the last pass or touch. In the second half it was going with more attitude than football. I saw a Boca that wanted to win it at all times and there are no reproaches for anyone, ”he concluded.
