Gareca stressed that “I said that I am interested that being in a Spanish-speaking team they worry more about speaking Spanish because it has to do with coexistence and communication on the field of play.”

Ricardo Gareca, coach of the Chilean National Team, had words for Ben Brereton’s emergency call, after he was initially excluded from the roster to face Albania and France, where he resorted to his poor command of Spanish to communicate.

In a press conference, the coach made it clear that “I was always clear in the concepts, that there are different interpretations is not my responsibility. It is who interprets it and the way they interpret it, they make the interpretations according to what they want.”

In this line, Gareca stressed that “I said that I am interested that being in a Spanish-speaking team they worry more about speaking Spanish because it has to do with coexistence and communication on the field of play.”

Regarding Ben Brereton, the coach pointed out that “I had a personal talk and it was always with a translator, but he is grasping and understanding according to what he says; not because I speak it, He understands the instructions, you have to speak very slowly – slowly – and generally in football you don’t speak slowly, because it is a group, we are on the playing field, “The interpretation of the words would be important so that I could be more and more prepared in that aspect.”

Regarding his position on the field of play, Ricardo Gareca explained that the attacker “He likes both positions, he likes it as a center forward according to the conversation, it is the one he likes the most, they have been placing him on the extremes in the league and from then on they saw him more on that side. If you ask him, or the answer he gave me, it seems like he feels more comfortable up front than on the wing.”
