Gonzalo Espinoza, midfielder of the University of Chile, referred this Friday to the news of the moment in the blue box, the meetings of coach Rafael Dudamel with some players in his department in full quarantine for the rise of contagion by coronavirus in the country. At a press conference, the cutting wheel of the school cast indicated that the Venezuelan never had a bad intention. “The teacher, as he said and answered the questions, acknowledged a mistake and talked to us, everything is fine and quiet now,” he said. The teacher gave an explanation and it was very clear. We don’t want to turn the matter around anymore, he’s already talked to us and it was a job thing. There was never a bad intention of wanting to move on to someone or some protocol,” he added. In the same line, the origin of the Constitution indicated that Dudamel “already spoke it, tried to settle that issue. Don’t spend words or questions talking about this topic, because I’m not going to answer any more.” Regarding the opaque debut at the 2021 National Championship, with a 1-1 win against Huachipato in Rancagua, the Bulldog avoided dramatizing by noting that “we recently had the subject of contagion, we had a week and a half to prepare for the first match of the tournament. You saw a team that got tired, it’s normal, because there were many days of inactivity. We don’t have to go crazy just for the other day’s tie, the team aims to be the protagonist, to play on the rival field with many arrivals.” We are aware of the day-to-day work, the pressures we have because we are playing in the ‘U’ and we have responsibilities (…) it is not easy to be playing with the press that criticizes you and that people too, there are also fans who were always and have to focus on that,” he complemented. Finally, Espinoza spoke of Johnny Herrera’s retirement from professional football at the age of 39. “What he did in his career was extraordinary, then what he gave to the ‘U’, and I told him as a fan, that he was grateful. Also that he hoped he would have a farewell as he deserved, for being the idol of the ‘U’ and for all the joys he gave to this club (…) Here wish him all the best in his new stage and do well in everything,” he said.
