Still assimilating the trauma of the defeat in his debut in the World Cup in Qatar 2022, in Argentina they are attributing the victory of Saudi Arabia to no less than an Argentine.
And it is that 9 of the 11 starting players of the Arab team have been trained by “an Argentine legend”: the technical director Ramón Ángel Díaz, who leads the bench of Al Hilal, the champion team of the Saudi Professional League.
Díaz stood out as manager of River Plate and in other Latin American clubs before settling in Saudi Arabia, published The nation.
Another medium that extolled this data was TyC Sports, also adding to other of his compatriots: “During the last decade, Saudi Arabia has soaked up Argentine players and coaches in its League. In fact, his last coach in a World Cup was Juan Antonio Pizzi”.
In social networks they responded to those who raised the figure of Ramón Díaz as the “artificer” of the good level of the Arab team.
“The truth is that Argentines are incredible, look, they have had blows and they don’t even come down from the cloud they live in,” wrote a Twitter user.
