Icardi thinks the old Argentina lacked companionship

first_imgInternazionale striker Mauro Icardi, took a dig at many elements from the last Argentina National Team after the match against Mexico.Back when the old guard of Argentina players was more important for the National Team, striker Mauro Icardi always felt like there wasn’t a camaraderie towards him for some reason and he always felt like an outsider.Now that he returned to the squad without all those veteran players to worry about, Mauro even got to score his very first goal for Argentina and feels more like a leader when he never felt that way in the past.After the second match against Mexico in which he was one of the two goal-scorers, Mauro spoke to the press about a controversial matter and he didn’t hold back when the media members asked him about his previous experience in the National Team.It’s evident that back in the day due to some personal problems he had with striker Maxi Lopez, many Argentina players never got to trust him because of this incident and some of the leaders inside the dressing room cast him out o the squad.But the new group of players that shared time with Mauro, are a younger generation who only know about his impressive spell in European football and they all respect him.”ANTES EN LA SELECCIÓN NO HABÍA ESTE COMPAÑERISMO”#CentralFOX | Mauro Icardi, picante luego del 2-0 de Argentina ante México. pic.twitter.com/9RgonE806J— FOX Sports Argentina (@FOXSportsArg) November 21, 2018After the match, Icardi sent a clear aggressive message to the former Argentina players who rejected him back in the day.“Beyond the goal I scored today, I have to say that I am very happy. Happy for these six matches, for all the players,” said Mauro via Diario Ole.“We gave our absolute best in order to grow and put something beautiful together. I am also very happy because we could finish this year with a victory.”“We are all very happy with Leo (Scaloni), Walter (Samuel), Pablo (Aimar), and the rest of the technical staff. After this, the final decision will come from up top.”“A goal was something I was missing. Fortunately, it finally happened. It makes me very happy as well, I feel very excited because I was waiting for this moment to come.”“I feel very happy with the work that this team has been doing and everything we put together. Not being able to score is terrible for a striker, I had been waiting for this because the people talked a lot of smack about it and I hope I can keep going like this.”FC Barcelona, Valencia CFMatch Preview: Barcelona vs Valencia Boro Tanchev – September 14, 2019 Is derby time in La Liga, as Barcelona welcomes Valencia to the Camp Nou Stadium tonight at 21:00 (CET).“I honestly feel very important here, with my club as well. If I can wear the number ‘9’ in the National Team is because of what I do with my club, this is exactly what I wanted,” he added.#SelecciónMayor ¡Final del primer tiempo! @Argentina vence 1-0 a @miseleccionmx.

Any team wants to have the best on their side,” he continued.“We hope that he can be with us next year and we expect him to help us during the Copa America. We all felt really comfortable, we have a very nice thing going here.”“I actually lived the previous process and there wasn’t as much companionship or friendship as today. When I came for the first time, the feeling was very different.”“You can feel it here, we are all very young and everybody wants the best for the group. Before, this feeling wasn’t here with all the more experienced players.”“Today everybody is coming from the bottom and they all want things to go well with the technical staff and the teammates. Having that feeling is always a plus. Representing your country is the most beautiful feeling ever.”“We are all young players who are looking to build something for the National Team, that is exactly what we are all looking for. In the past, there were a lot of experienced players who needed to give everything to win and prove themselves.”“Today that feeling is changed, it’s gone. It’s a pity that they weren’t able to win a final, but today we all start from scratch and we made a drastic turn. The pressure is less significant,” he concluded.#SelecciónMayor ¡Ganó @Argentina!
