Also, The defender from Universidad de Chile risked it with three youth players who could follow a similar path in 2023 to that of the two recently named blue youth squads.
– How do you assess the appearance of players like Assadi and Osorio in the first team?
– Good. It gives it a different essence, it gives it that mystique that the little ones have, the strength, the claw, the energy they have. You have to keep mixing that with the experience of some and try to empower them even more.
– Are you encouraged to name another youth that this 2023 can replicate this?
– There are several guys who play well, perhaps they lack experience, but time gives that. In juveniles there are several: it is Agustín Arce, Enzo Fernández and Cristian Pardo, They are players who are looking forward to it, so let’s hope they can finish their development and make contributions to the U.
