Borja’s concern in river Plate

One of the changes with the arrival of coach Martín Demichelis at River Plate has been to look for a new striker to be more effective in the opposite area, Therefore, one of the main affected has been the Colombian Miguel Ángel Borja.

Despite the fact that the Colombian striker began as the starting attacker for the Argentine team, as was the case when River was led by Marcelo Gallardo, in recent games there have been rotations that have caused Borja to be relegated from the starting eleven in the most important games.

Borja managed to be the starting forward during the first four games of the Argentine league, but in recent games the impression has been left that the River coach prefers other attackers. Precisely, in the last press conference, Demichelis was asked about the order of importance in his attackers and although he did not decline for just one, the answer would be worrisome for the former Junior de Barranquilla striker.

“I am not improvising on the road, I test during the week and I have feelings. I have to make decisions. I have a great team, especially in the human field. There are players who were starters before and today they accepted my decision. With three competitions yet, the group has to rotate because all the players must be confident”, stated the River Plate coach.

After this, he took the time to praise Lucas Beltrán, striker who started against Godoy Cruz: “He scored two goals and I’m happy for someone who worked from the first day without getting off against Miguel Borja and Salomón Rondón”, added.
