Boca got used to living without peace. Elimination of the cup, statements by Battaglia, dismissal of Battaglia, harangue with a leaked message from Benedetto, presentation of Ibarra with assistants who never worked with him, cleaning of Izquierdoz, Rojo dedicating a goal to the erased captain, ugly defeat with San Lorenzo, the 9 who assumes that the departure from Cali was not football, Almendra goes from repatriated to warn that he does not arrange a contract, threat of recovery with Talleres, applause for Rossi, departure of the hooded former captain to a team from the second Spanish, fall with tactical beating with Argentinos, good victory with Estudiantes, the “Rossi no se va” resounding in the Bombonera, “giant” offer to 1 so that he stays, the team’s paper with Patronato… This frenetic summary occurred in the Boca world in less than a month.
The Rossi explosion with a truncated meeting, the bomb detonated by President Ameal Y the goalkeeper’s representative’s response It was one more chapter of this unlivable climate. Because the mere description of the facts reveals that in this context the construction of anything will be very complicated. And Boca needs at some point to have a starting point. Disarm the revolver with which he shoots himself in the foot every day.
The strategies to take care of the club’s numbers are the power of the leaders. And wherever you look at it, that management is loose of papers. Because sportingly, beyond the titles, they lack what they themselves set as their goal: the Libertadores. And because institutionally it must find a way to deal with the negotiations for what they are: negotiations. If management is always based on money or shit, the risk is that what happens today will happen. And beware that there are several (Villa and Fabra, to name two) who still have the challenge of contract renewal.
Idols who begin to fall off the poster, referents who prefer to leave, a team that walks the field, a technician who did not intend to be a DT of the First Division and a Council that does not seem to like working in peace and falls into a story every day further from the facts. This is (today) Boca.
