He has not had the minutes he wants and everything seems to indicate that his situation is far from improving. On the contrary, Agustín Almendra would not play in Boca Juniors anymore, at least until coach Sebastián Battaglia decides so, after a strong discussion between both characters in the morning practice this Monday.

According to information from TyC Sports and different Argentine sports media, the midfielder was not satisfied with the DT’s decision to place him in the substitute team and this generated his annoyance that he even reflected with some of his teammates. At one point, Battaglia stepped in to try and calm him down, but it didn’t work.

“The DT would have told him: “If you don’t like it, you leave.” Far from reflecting, the 22-year-old midfielder left the field, took his vehicle and left the Ezeiza Training Center “reported the aforementioned source.

Faced with this situation, Battaglia, with the endorsement of the Football Council, determined that Agustín Almendra no longer train for the first team and train separately at a different time from the group, which would not even allow him to change together with the rest of the team. campus.

Almendra has a contract with Boca Juniors until mid-2023 and, so far, no concrete options have appeared so that he can join another team. So far in 2022, the midfielder has participated in just three games of the seven that ‘Xeneize’ has.

Boca, of the Peruvians Luis Advíncula and Carlos Zambrano, is preparing to face Central Córdoba, from Rosario, this Wednesday for the 32nd round of the Argentine Cup.
