“With the owner, we did not talk about the means or the budget for the transfer window, we talked about needs and how to meet them”, he first launched before continuing. “If it is possible to respond economically, so much the better. If not, it will have to be done by being creative in the market ”, he explained, putting his cards on the table. “If we don’t, the project will definitely fail. You have to speak clearly to people. Selling dreams is difficult ”.

Recruit smart

“We know that we will not have the budget of the biggest European clubs. Recruiting strong players, big individuals on the market, that will be complicated. But yes, we can build a good team with our means ”, he assured, referring in particular to the case of Leonardo Balerdi (22), Argentinian international central defender on loan with an option to purchase by Borussia Dortmund.

“Leo has found continuity here to continue to grow. It has a great future to develop, but it must have continuity to continue to progress. He has to play. If he returns to Dortmund, to be loaned again elsewhere, he may get lost and not become the player he can become. It would prevent it from consolidating ”, he explained, confirming that he wanted to keep his compatriot. It’s up to Pablo Longoria to play now to meet the expectations of his coach … and Olympian supporters.
