This Friday, at 6:00 pm, Chile will host the Peruvian National Team at home, in the match corresponding to the third day of the South American Qualifiers heading to Qatar 2022.
The southern team, led by Colombian Reinaldo Rueda, will play the Pacific Classic with the aim of scoring their first three points in the competition.
Precisely, in the pre-match, Rueda, in a press conference, sent a dart to Inter Milan’s medical department, stating that the club should take better care of its players, referring especially to Arturo Vidal and Alexis Sánchez, who are part of the Nerazzurri and are key pieces in the Chilean team.
“I wish Inter had heeded when Alexis returned and they would have taken care of him, evaluated as we did. This is something that goes in both directions, they are not times from the colonial era, “said the strategist hours before the game.
Immediately, and after the 63-year-old strategist’s statements were replicated in European media, Inter Milan published a statement in which he referred to Rueda’s words in the pre-match against Peru, qualifying those said by the Colombian as ‘unacceptable, offensive and alien to reality’.
“The FC Internazionale Milano considers the statements of the Chilean coach Reinaldo Rueda unacceptable, offensive and unrealistic. The club has always had the maximum collaboration and excellent relations with all the personnel of the national teams “.
“In the particular case of Alexis Sánchez, the player has encountered a physical problem in almost all the calls with his team. In one of them he suffered a serious injury that kept him away from the pitch for three months. This was a serious sporting damage for the club, which has always been attentive to the health of its players, “the institution reported.
