The Argentina striker spoke about the Universitario win and praised the actions of Pablo Sabbag, who took his place in the starting XI.
Good relationship. One of the surprises of the classic was the inclusion of Pablo Sabbag instead of Hernán Barcos. Guillermo Salas opted for this modification and achieved good results: the Colombian scored in the 2-1 win over Universitario at the Monumental. After what happened, the “pirate” showed his joy at the result and spoke about the healthy competition he has with his partner.
“He’s a great player. He has a great future, he has a lot of personality. I told him before the game to play calmly because these games are more mental than physical. He did it perfectly, he scored a goal that gave us the win,” he told the media.
Regarding his presence on the substitutes’ bench, the blue and white striker made it clear that whatever the turn, the welfare of the institution comes first.
“My contract doesn’t say I have to play. We are 30 players and the most important thing here is Alianza Lima, not Hernán Barcos or Pablo Sabbag. Whoever plays has to do well. Alianza won today and we’re all happy.” The leaders have to be there when they’re playing, and even when they’re not, that’s where the leaders are,” he noted.
