“I am not afraid of failure”, says Lasarte in his farewell as Chile coach

“I am not afraid of the word failure. It is clear that we did not meet the objective of qualifying for the World Cup, but it does leave us a certain satisfaction that some less relevant objectives were met, ”said the former soccer player.

The Chilean National Professional Football Association (ANFP) announced on April 1 that they had reached an agreement with Lasarte not to renew his contract as head of La Roja after their 0-2 defeat against Uruguay.

“I personally want to thank Martin. We are not going to forget that he arrives in the middle of a pandemic in Chile. There were many obstacles and it remains for a deep analysis of Chilean soccer, ”said the ANFP sports director, Francis Cagigao, at the time.

With the elimination, La Roja will have to face a process of generational change due to the decline that referents such as Alexis Sánchez, Arturo Vidal, Gary Medel and Claudio Bravo are beginning to show.

These players, leaders of the so-called ‘Golden Generation’, led the conquest of two consecutive editions of the Copa América.

“A year ago I said that the selection depended on its Golden Generation to qualify. Some young players who go out don’t play or aren’t even summoned, and that’s very complicated,” Lasarte said.

La Roja closed their participation in South American qualifiers in seventh place with 19 points in 18 games, with nine losses, four draws and five wins.

The Chilean sports press conjectures with the names of at least four candidates to succeed the Uruguayan coach: from the Real Betis coach, Manuel Pellegrini, the favorite of a large part of the fans; the Argentines Sebastián Beccacece and Eduardo Berizzo or even the coach of Colo Colo, Gustavo Quinteros.

The entrance “I am not afraid of failure”, says Lasarte in his farewell as Chile coach was first published in diary TODAY.
