From “I want a strong team” to “if this is a blow, so it will be”: the phrases that characterize Fossati and the ‘charrúa’ that exists in the Bicolor

, Jorge Fossati launched at a press conference prior to the decisive match when asked about the strong play of the Americans in their debut against Argentina (3-0 loss). Messi, for example, suffered it: he received a kick in the second half that left him lying on the field.

Fossati, 71 years under his belt, two decades as a coach and another two as a footballer, has the necessary experience to know that this second match is a final for both of them. And it will be played as such: with a strong leg and the knife between the teeth. He, Uruguayan by birth (Tacuarembó, 1952), carries in his veins that charrúa drive that he wants to impose on the Bicolor.

“Football has its rules and you have to follow them. There are a couple of situations that everyone saw and are discussed to this day. They were infractions with excessive force and endangering the opponent’s physique. I will never ask that of my players. Yes, I am worried that they are permissive with violence.”he added as if trying to calm the waters, but the warning had already been said.

In this Peru that does not have much game or individual quality, Fossati has decided to improve it from the physical aspect and collective sacrifice. That is to say: the famous ‘garra charrúa’, the seal that those who are born in the eastern country carry and that is being transferred to Videna de San Luis. , analyzed Sergio Peña, one of those who played the best in the second half of the duel against the southerners, battling and running without the ball, associating and being the driver with the ball at his feet.

Fossati’s team, with the 3-5-2 that aims to be a short and balanced team, has as its defensive leader Carlos Zambrano, the ‘Kaiser’, a rustic center back who knows how to play on the border between rough and violent. On his right side, Miguel Araujo, a stopper with the personality to dive face-first if necessary. And on the other side, Alexander Callens, as quick to anticipate as he is strong to put his body. And in front of them, Wilder Cartagena, at ‘6’ of brand, dedication and sacrifice. They, along with Pedro Gallese, are the five elements that the coach has found to build his base in this Copa América. All with a particular characteristic: they are willing to give up life for red-and-white colors.

“They are a physical, strong, fast, dynamic team, they have quick transitions, with arrivals from the flanks. Against Argentina, the force they used was on the very fine line, between strength and violence, it seems to me that with another referee’s perspective”

“The ‘Lucho’ thing is something that we are going to see day by day. On Friday he came out he was very sore, according to him it was a pain that has already happened to him other times, but that had never taken him out of a game, this time it did.” “On Saturday and Sunday he has already been improving, we could see him walking practically without difficulty, we will see how he is today. For now there is no one ruled out for tomorrow’s game.”

“I want a strong team”

Monday April 29. The press room of the Videna de San Luis is approached by the presence of countless journalists awaiting Jorge Fossati’s surprise press conference. It was not to announce summons, far from it. “I will try to hold conferences every month to report how we are doing,” the coach began by saying that he tries to have a good relationship with national journalism. A few days ago, in the United States, he approached the special envoys to tell them that he will speak with them exclusively one day before the press conference for the debut with Chile in which, for obvious reasons, the media that wishes attend.

That day, Fossati pointed out what he expected from the Peruvian team, which until then had only played two friendlies, both with victories (2-0 vs. Nicaragua and 4-1 vs. Dominican Republic): “Let it be strong and competitive.” , and I believe in the ability of the Peruvian soccer player to achieve it. We know it is complicated and difficult, but we fully trust the team’s ability.”

And he threw out a phrase almost similar to “if this is to blows, it will be to blows”: .

That is the new chip established in the national team, in addition, of course, to the high-level work behind it. Some calls may generate controversy, but what is not negotiated in the Fossati era is the commitment and sacrifice to represent a country. That Uruguayan culture that the teacher seeks to reflect in his direction.
