“This year was a total flop, but really a total flop. Now that they want to dress it up as something else, that’s fine.” That’s how blunt it is Miguel Angel Neira when evaluating the 2022 of the Catholic University.
The historic “Crusaders” player spoke with on court and nothing was saved: “For my taste, beyond the bad results, he played very badly. Católica’s game was always bad, in no minute did I see him play well. That thing about the goalkeeper being the player with the most possession in the match I find ridiculous. I never saw it in my life. That of playing everything backwards, no. That’s not for UC.”
The former midfielder also had words for the games of Jose Pedro FuenzalidaLuciano Aued and German Lanaroreferents and symbols of the four-time champion UC.
“The pruning of references seems good to me. Although Fuenzalida was his decision, he did well, because the club wanted to leave him. Aued and Lanaro no longer had the level to play at the national level. And what’s more, I think more people still have to go. In this type of team, after such a bad campaign, you have to renew the team. We are talking about 6 or 7 players. They can’t stay the same. There are people who completed a cycle and give more space to young people, although today I do not see someone of category as I do in the u, which currently has the best soccer player in Chile: Lucas Assadi. To see him I would pay a ticket, but the rest, not today,” he launched.
The bad bet of the UC with Bruno Barticciotto and Alexander Aravena
Finally, Neira analyzed the bad bet of the San Carlos team with Bruno Barticciotto and Alexander Aravena, whom they wanted to blank out and then “repatriate” them. The first has already been lost, since it now belongs to Palestino, while Ñublense plans to buy the second.
“Barticciotto hurts me that he is leaving. Because of the personality he has, because he has that Argentine gene… Aravena, I don’t know, I have my doubts. I think he is a player for a small team“He said harshly. And he closed:” It was a bad deal for the Catholic, another one for its sports manager and its president. A lousy job. They lost one of his jewels.”
