He also clarified that between now and Saturday he will see if he plays or not.
On the other hand, he added:The adaptation in Independiente Sarrafiore and Barcia will do it when they start playing in Independiente. In order not to make physical mistakes, we are going to take it little by little. They are not going to play on Saturday. Surely they are going to add minutes in the friendly that we have ahead of us”, commented the coach. And then he said: “Cauteruccio and Giménez are compatible. It may be that at some point they will play together”.
