Complicated arrival from Boca to Belo Horizonte to face Atlético Mineiro

The arrival of the Boca Juniors squad to Belo Horizonte, where tomorrow they will face Atlético Mineiro for the second leg of the round of 16 of the Copa Libertadores, was immersed in several complications due to some requests made by the staff of the International Airport ” Tancredo Neves “regarding swabs that the” xeneize “delegation had already taken place in Buenos Aires.

“Here we are! With arrival delays, Miguel Russo’s squad is already in Belo Horizonte to play tomorrow’s rematch of the #CopaLibertadores round of 16 against Atlético Mineiro”, tweeted the official Boca Juniors account, accompanying the text with an image of the footballers scattered on stairs and other spaces in the place.

Within the “xeneize” delegation resounded, from this situation, the “threat” from the president of Atlético Mineiro, Sergio Coelho, who at the end of the meeting in the Bombonera stressed that Boca was going to be “received and treated in Belo Horizonte “in the same way that they ‘had been in Buenos Aires.’

“We arrived at the airport almost at midnight and they had all the members of our delegation tested for Covid-19, since all of us had been tested on Sunday, the day of the trip, and they were all negative. We stayed two hours waiting for the result to come out, in the early morning, very cold in Ezeiza, and when we got to the hotel it was around 3 in the morning, “Coelho then complained.

The concrete thing was that the same thing happened to Boca today, and although the tests had been carried out yesterday, in the same way as the Mineiro players the week before, the first ones asked them to swab again, or otherwise validate one by one in a way. Printed those made this Sunday before going through Migrations, which delayed the departure from the airport to the hotel by more than an hour.

“As usual, we were not well received by Boca, starting with the technical commission that insistently pressured, throughout the game, our coach, Cuca, even with moral offenses. They put pressure from the beginning to the end of the game, including the coach. of Boca Juniors (Miguel Russo) “, shot Coelho last Tuesday. It seems that your “warning” has already started to take shape.
