Uruguay’s new soccer coach declared on Tuesday that he took on the challenge of directing the ‘Celeste’. “I’m here because I believe in the players that Uruguay currently has and also those with a future. But I believe in those who are currently. Uruguay, doing things the way they have to, will be in the World Cup “, he indicated during his presentation in Montevideo.

Despite the low physical moment of some references of the national team, such as defender Diego Godín and forward Luis Suárez, Alonso insisted that he has all those who make up the team today: “Without talking about proper names, the players who have hierarchy are important, not only in Uruguay, in soccer in general. The experience is gained through the games and those references appear in difficult moments as well “.
