For Juan José López, River’s relegation passed quickly, “it’s a logical wound, like when you lose finals”. And he finished: ”Madrid kills relegation because of the previous condiments, because of what happened. The world of football was attentive to that game. It was seen everywhere. It was played in the White House, where everyone wants to play. Was achieved the title most desired by all teams“.
The former coach who went down with River in 2011 also spoke about the Superclásico that Boca won on Sunday at the Bombonera by 1-0: “I saw it in pieces. I didn’t like it as a spectator, without the passion for one team or another. Boca did his job of not letting River progress, of cutting him off with a foul and going to the man. River did not find the game. There were not so many scoring options. Two for each. Boca made it concrete and won the classic. That’s how closed classics are, Whoever guesses right wins.”
In dialogue with Platea Baja, López added: “River did not arrive at a good time with his players. The big problem was that. Those who are decisive were not 100 percent. In a classic it is more noticeable. Solari is the example, He did not arrive in the best way as he was doing. He arrived with a contracture or something. It was the classic. Surely, Gallardo thought of narrowing spaces with a 5 line, stretching the wings and that Solari did not have as much travel, closer to the area to unbalance. It didn’t happen, Boca made his proposal and didn’t let him progress either.”
‘Jota Jota’ recalled the game against Belgrano like this: “We had a share of bad luck, misfortune. The penalty that Olave saves would have changed us a lot, there were 20 minutes left to finish the game. The people would have encouraged the player to give everything to win it Belgrano had a great team, Zielinski made a good statement in Belgrano and River. In El Monumental we could have won it but it didn’t happen. In life you have to put your heart into it and get ahead.”
And about those responsible for the worst chapter in the club’s history, he admitted: “Each one has their responsibility. It is distributed. It is a team game. Every game they played with us was a final. It was River. They wanted it to go down It’s a wish, it’s not that they’ve manipulated it. That’s it, life always gives revenge and I think that River won a title in Spain that will be unforgettable, that goes beyond relegation.” Leonardo Ponzio River Madrid In addition, López was forceful when asked about the relegation and the final of the Libertadores in Madrid: “The problem is when you lose it and you don’t come back light. When you stay two or three years below. You start to suffer. River cannot spend two or three years in B. He came back light. Quick Step”.
