Diego Godin after his first training session quotI come to

The defender of the Uruguayan team, Diego Godín, said that his arrival at Vélez Sarsfield is because he loves “soccer” and has the goal of “contributing a lot” to the Professional Soccer League (LPF) and the Copa Libertadores de América .

In this sense, the former soccer player from Atlético Mineiro in Brazil expressed: “I come because I love soccer. I want to be well. I know that I can contribute a lot in Vélez and Vélez can give me a lot. As I said, with desire and with a short and medium term goal which is the World Cup”.

After his arrival in Buenos Aires, the 36-year-old defender said: “I want to get to work, get well, get to that moment in the best possible way, competing in Vélez and helping the team, which is what I want now.”

In this way, he trained this morning at the Villa Olímpica de Vélez with his new teammates and tomorrow he will give a press conference. “From the physical point of view, he had had a little patellar tendinitis, that had been dragging him, which had been causing quite a struggle,” he lamented about his physical condition.

“Last month I played a game,” he explained and that is how he is in doubt for the first leg of the Libertadores round of 16 against River: “I had been standing in Brazil for about 15 days. I came to the National Team, and I also played a game I come with a lot of desire to get well. Now I will arrive at the club, I will speak with the “Cacique” (DT Alexander Medina) and we will see there, “he said.

“Vélez is going to help me a lot at this point in my career, which is my last war. Now the important thing is day to day, and being physically well”, he pointed out and, finally, concluded: “I’m looking for continuity and I know “Cacique” Medina and his coaching staff, I know how they work, beyond the friendship we have had for many years, before he was a coach. I know what we can contribute, it is a young team, with a lot of heart, a lot of paw”.
