This Tuesday afternoon, former goalkeeper of the Argentine team and current TV presenter Sergio Goycochea was the big guest of Poco Correctos (Eltrece), the new cycle of signals led by “Pollo” lvarez and “Chino” Leunis. At one point in the interview, he was asked for the latest on Lionel Messi, who made his name a few days ago in his first tournament with David Beckham’s Inter Miami.
Sergio Goycochea recalled the darkest moment of his life: “My mother called me and asked me to tell her the truth.”
Goycochea sat down in Poco Correctos’ living room to talk about his footballing career, in which he excelled by taking penalties in the semifinals of the 1990 World Cup in Italy. But after his golden moments in sports, the 59-year-old began his career as a television presenter in the media. Reflecting on his long career, “Chino” Leunis asked him about the gift of Lionel Messi, who led Inter Miami to the league title for the first time in their short history by winning the Nashville SC League Cup on penalties.
“Messi is in Miami now. “Some of us said the level was going down, but it’s better than ever,” Leunis said, and the guest argued: “If you had told me that Messi would have gone to Miami when he was 20, I would have told you that that is not the case.” comfortable. At this point in his career, his talent is unquestionable. If you say, Hey, they don’t tag him’, why aren’t there 10 Messis? When I was playing in Barcelona, they said to you, “But he’s surrounded by cracks; why aren’t there five Messis in the Spanish league?”

He then pointed to the difference between the new stars signed by David Beckham and the rest of the footballers from other teams in the United States. “This league has a level down for these great players who are monsters: Messi, Busquets, and Jordi Alba. Instead of having the closest brand, they have those far away, so they have a lot of advantages. If Busquets has seven transfer options instead of one, he will stand out.”

Finally, the former national team goalkeeper expressed his wishes for the future. “Also, he has to go to the World Cup in the United States because there would be six World Cups, and it would be another prize for Argentina. No one tops it,” he concluded very euphorically before the end of the show.
It should be noted that the team led by Gerardo “Tata” Martino, after establishing themselves as League Cup champions, will once again play for the US Cup this Wednesday against Cincinnati, the best team in Major League Soccer (MLS), which leads the Eastern Conference with 51 points from 15 wins, six draws, and just three losses.
