The coach of Lanús, Frank Kudelka, harshly criticized his River colleague, Martín Demichelis, for his statements after the 2-0 victory of the Núñez club, last Saturday, and compared him to Marcelo Gallardohis predecessor.
“I didn’t greet Demichelis because I didn’t see him. We were at the same distance to greet each other. His predecessor, a man, Mr. Marcelo Gallardo, full of titles, who won everything, shortened the distances because the coaches who faced him wanted that match to say hello”Kudelka told ESPN.
“Gallardo did not feel on a throne where he had to be respected, he came to greet us”added the DT of Lanús.
This way, kudelka came out at the crossroads Demichelis, who after the triumph in the “Garnet Fortress” complained about the lack of air conditioning in the locker room and the absence of a greeting from the rival coach.
“Those of us who are almost never going to lead River, and so many other coaches in Argentina and the world who want to and will never reach that place, we understand those people who achieve it, like this coach, who occupies a privileged place in which you have to agree, and not talk about people you don’t know,” Kudelka continued.
“It hurts a lot, it’s not anger. Several times I had emotionally incorrect actions such as the expulsion the other day, but I never stop greeting anyone,” said the former Huracán and Talleres coach.
The Lanús coach also said that River played “very defensively” last Saturday: “We were surprised by how River played. We prepared a strategy thinking that they were going to put high pressure on us and it didn’t happen. It confused us. Tactically they surprised us and they gave revenue”.
