Darío Benedetto arrived in Argentina from Spain to become a new Boca Juniors player and will have his second cycle with the Xeneize shirt.
Upon his arrival at Ezeiza, he spoke about his return to Argentina and how the fans received him, “his mouth always beats me” he said upon his arrival, as soon as he reached the international arrivals area and the fans pounced.
Today the striker commented on how he is going to continue his activity, “now I will have to do the medical check-up and then sign the contract, but everything will be fine”. He will sign a contract for the next three seasons with the Boca shirt.
As for how his return to Xeneize was managed, Benedetto said, “the club was always surprised, in June of last year Román called me but I told him that it was not the time, I wanted to try Spain because there was the offer from Elche. But it wasn’t what I expected and I called Roman and told him I wanted to come back.”
El Pipa left Boca in mid-2019, and regarding his departure in that first cycle, he left a message to the fans angry at his departure. “I tell the fans to put themselves in my place, I was 29 years old and could play in Europe, but I don’t regret it.”
“I am very well physically and mentally. I said that if I went back to the mouth it wasn’t to be bad physically and I’m one hundred, I’m here to compete” said the striker, who after Martín Palermo has one of the best goal averages with one every 118 minutes.
The former Arsenal de Sarandí attacker did not escape talking about the seventh, “the goal of the fans and the council and mine is to win the Copa Libertadores”
“I wouldn’t wear the ten of mouth, it’s too big,” was the answer when they asked him if he would wear that shirt since since Tévez left he was left bacchante. And taking into account that we are in a World Cup year, he spoke of being able to be part of Lionel Scaloni’s team, “not the national team, I just arrived and my mind is in Boca”.
