“There is no reason that now makes me think that the future should be differently. The contract expired when the referee whistled the end ”, he completed.

A 'Tata' who did not hide when it came to answering what he regrets about his management during this World Cup.
“Not having sustained the rhythm of the game in the first half against Poland in the second half. There perhaps he deserved some kind of variation. Then, I thought about it later, in the match against Argentina and being 0-0, we could have modified the tactical system in the second half to face it with our usual scheme, ”he replied.
In addition, 'Tata' Martino wanted to deny any confrontation with the footballers, despite the fact that some of them, such as César Chávez or Edson Álvarez, reproached him for the approach in the second game against Argentina.
