Gimnasia beat Newell’s 3-1 this afternoon with goals from Pablo Pérez and Eric Ramírez in the first half and two from Ramón Sosa at the start of the complement, a victory that was not enough to qualify for the quarterfinals.
In a dramatic match, Néstor “Pipo” Gorosito’s team depended on other results and could not reach the decisive stages of the competition. Both were left with 10 players due to the expulsions of Pérez and Gerometta.
It was precisely Gorosito who spoke at a press conference and said: “The final balance is more than positive beyond the pain. The start was imprecise but we won fairly and we could even have scored one more goal”.
And he added: “We said about the start before and the last dates have been very good. We are very grateful from the coaching staff”.
He also said: “Today it started imprecisely, we had two or three mistakes that Rodrigo covered and then I think we won fairly. Gerometta’s expulsion is completely unfair.”
“When we arrived at Gymnastics there was talk of relegation. Today in the table of averages the Wolf is 12. We are in international cup positions, an achievement that we did not achieve last year by two points”, he commented.
And he referred: “In the other group, teams with 20 points qualified, we got 24. In the general table we are calm among the best.”
As for the rumors that link him to San Lorenzo, Pipo revealed: “I didn’t speak to anyone about San Lorenzo, I know that journalism is talking. It’s normal because of my identification with the club. No one called me.”
