Demichelis ruled out leaving River: “I love being here”

Faced with a possible departure of Thomas Tuchel due to Bayern Münch’s poor performance in recent games, European media pointed to Martin Demichelis as the candidate that most interests the German club, however, after the draw with Talleres, the coach ruled out the possibility in the press conference. I’m proud to be named, everyone knows the sense of belonging I have with Bayern Munich, but I’m at River and I love being here,” said the coach, and then added: “I think we’re going to have a great 2024.” Barcelona were also interested in signing him according to Spanish media, but Bayern’s interest further aroused the chances of his departure due to the bond that unites them. Before taking charge of River’s first team, Demichelis coached the U-19 (2019-2021) and U-23 (2021-2022) divisions in his first experiences as a coach. I was never in a hurry. I tried to prepare as much as possible for this opportunity at River. I’m very focused on everything we have,” he said at the time. Then, he analysed the development of the match and the mistakes of the whole.” In the second half, the opponent outplayed us. We didn’t do the same as we did in the first one. We’re very upset that we couldn’t close out the game,” he said. For us, this match had a double value. The three points put us first and it was also a litmus test for everything to come. This is a great rival, who will play in the Copa Libertadores and who last year finished second in the overall table. We’re going to keep working to correct mistakes, we’ll try to win again on Wednesday with our fans,” concluded Demichelis.Demichelis’ numbers at RiverWithout losing any of the classics he played so far against Boca, the coach has won two titles with River so far: the 2023 Argentine League and the 2023 Champions Trophy. Despite the fact that they achieved two consecrations in just one year, the bitter taste of River fans is due to the premature elimination in the last Copa Libertadores against Internacional of Brazil on penalties after an aggregate of 3-3, in a match that they were close to winning. In total, Demichelis coached 64 matches, with 38 wins, 15 draws and 12 defeats, with 115 goals scored and 58 conceded.
