He has been sports director of Universitario de Deportes for almost three months and work, despite the short time, has been hard for Manuel Barreto. The former soccer player was not only concerned with giving the minor divisions more comfort, but also, in coordination with coach Carlos Compagnucci, made signings for the first team. One of them is Claudio Yacob.
The Argentine arrived to reinforce the midfield, but so far, he has not shone as the fans expect. Regarding the situation, Barreto, in an interview with La Cita Depor, of the Depor newspaper, gave his point of view and confessed that he does not believe it is due to bad luck.
“I don't know if bad luck. What I see is that he trains and that, in a short time, he has gained ascendancy over the group and, obviously, he has to -on the court- earn recognition. He had the 'blooper' on the first date, but later in the next game he played here (Monumental Stadium), it seems to me that he did quite well. Watching him train, I'm sure that when he touches him, he's going to perform,” he stated. Barreto.
On the other hand, the football technical director also referred to Alberto Quintero, who a few weeks ago declared that he would not rule out an eventual signing by Alianza Lima. Let's remember that the Panamanian ends his contract with Universitario at the end of this year and there is no confirmation if the link will be extended.
“Punctually by In the case of Alberto Quintero, I take everything into consideration, not only sports, but also several factors that seem important to me, such as conduct, how professional or how good a teammate he is. There are additional sports details that have to be looked at in order to make decisions”, said Barreto in this regard.
