Although it did not appear on the list of concentrates that Sebastian Battaglia unveiled on Thursday to face Independiente, Óscar Romero accompanied the delegation from Boca to Avellaneda. In the previous match against Central he had already been present on the Vélez field.
Eye, it is worth saying that the fifth reinforcement of Boca was very close to being part of those mentioned for this match, since in his first days of training the coaching staff did very well physically and with the ball. However, Battaglia decided to wait a little longer and give him time to adjust.
“From the inside it feels different, you feel greatness, it’s very motivating day to day, training, wanting to start playing, return the trust they placed in me on the field”Romero said as soon as he arrived at the Libertadores de América.
When will the 29-year-old Paraguayan debut? In principle, it is believed that he will be summoned this Wednesday when Boca debuts in the Argentine Cup against Central Córdoba de Rosario, at the Mario Alberto Kempes.
“I was training with Valdecantos before coming here. I’m waiting for the moment to make my debut, with anxiety and desire to play. It depends on the coach”, warned the Melli. And it is true: he was training in a private way and also with the Paraguayan national team, first with Eduardo Berizzo and then with Guillermo Barros Schelotto, who surely now that Óscar will have filming again will notice him again.
Of course, there is a reality and it is inevitable not to take it into account: Romero added just four games in almost six months, playing only the Qualifiers (he harvested 144 minutes). Despite that, he already warned that he is ready. Ready and already involved in his new role on campus.
