Barbie White, a member of the Racing Board of Directors, confirmed that the Academy also joined the AFA’s request for CONMEBOL to delay the start of the Copa Libertadores. In this way, the Avellaneda club is coupled to the request of River, Boca, Tigre and Defense and Justice.
« We also ask for the postponement of the Copa Libertadores« , confirmed the leader of Racing to TNT Sports, in an unmissable hand to hand with Angela Lerena. From the club of Avellaneda they also think that it is a disadvantage for the Argentine clubs that the Libertadores return on September 15.
And in the same line, he added: « There is a difference with the outside teams and it is difficult for us. Our reality is different. The Argentine teams are eager to return, but there will be a difference that will be noticed, especially from the physical point of view « .
Finally, Blanco commented that for the moment he does not know what CONMEBOL’s decision will be: « Let’s see what can be done, for now we write the letter and make the order. Now we have to push and see what can happen … We need a month to train more or less, fifteen days is too little to return to the level that is needed, « he closed.
