Chilean national team
High repercussion had the sayings of Rafael Olarra on the forward Ben Brereton. However, the former Olympic defender of the Chilean team spoke with Redgol to clarify his arguments. “But there are football things that I would like to hear more, because Lasarte’s analysis of Brereton is in his image, in his angel,” he stressed.
The hours before the crash this Thursday between the teams of Chile and Venezuela have been marked by Ben Brereton, the compliments he has received and especially a critique of the national Olympic medalist Rafael Olarra al ariete de Blackburn Rovers.
“I applauded and shouted the goal more than anyone, but if I go to football attitudes he lacks a lot. He has the attitude and it is spectacular to have it because there is a lack of that type of player and he is contagious,” explained the former defender on ESPN.
The networks immediately exploded against the former University of Chile player, so Olarra wanted to clarify his words and, in conversation with Redgol, explained what he was referring to at the time of his questioned balance sheet on Brereton.
“We must cling to what the national team has today, which has not had a good performance and that is why we are in such an uncomfortable place. And in that eagerness one talks about what he is feeling. In my space I must really say what I’m feeling, “he explains.
In this sense, Olarra points out that “Ben Brereton has very positive things: humility, deployment, desire. I have seen interesting things about him, with some movements, the definition we could say is a good argument that he has; but one is clouded with the few options Chile has in that position. “
Then El Flaco recognizes that it is “good that Ben has appeared, because if we weren’t very much in debt. He is an important player today in the Chilean team, who has won the title and that we are going to support him.”
Olarra did not like the “Angel” of the Red
In the post-match conference for Chile against Paraguay, Martín Lasarte appreciated the “angel” that Brereton has and has allowed him to generate a great relationship with the fans of the Chilean team. But Rafael Olarra believes that the evaluation must go further.
“I was one of those who shouted the goal the most at home, with my family, but if one has to be objective, clearly one sees many more soccer tools in other players,” says the former captain of Universidad de Chile.
“I find the work enormous, the physical deployment to control and ask for the ball. Nobody can say that they don’t see it. But there are football things that I would like to hear more, because Lasarte’s analysis of Brereton is in his image, in his angel, more than what would interest us all, which is his soccer role “, calibrates Olarra.
And he gives as an example one of the pillars of the Golden Generation. “When one talks about Vidal, one does not talk about his angel: he talks about his quality, his strength, his hierarchy, that when Chile enters, notices him. That’s what I’m going for,” he emphasizes.
“The idea is that we qualify, that we walk well, but one has to talk about football as well. And if one had the luck or the privilege of being on a playing field and seeing many teammates, we must comment on it from that point of view “reflects Olarra.
