The ovation of the Bombonera to Agustin Rossi
The Bombonera spoke. This Saturday, in the run-up to the match against Platense for date 12 of the Professional League, the Boca Juniors public was forceful in demonstrating in favor of the continuity of Agustín Rossi, the goalkeeper who has been key in the last titles obtained by the club , especially for his saves on penalties.
After the leadership and the representatives of the 26-year-old soccer player did not reach an agreement, the player will not continue in the institution beyond June 2023, when he will go free, unless he is sold in the next few days or in the summer transfer window. It is clear that the partners of the Xeneize Most of them do not agree with this decision and that is why they expressed themselves from the stands.
“Rossi is from Boca and Boca is not leaving,” was heard from all four sides of the field in a clearing when the footballer went out to warm up, until the stadium’s speakers came on. Undoubtedly, the genuine cry from the public was an express request for the club to make an effort to keep the goalkeeper who has given so much joy to his people. In addition, when the players jumped onto the playing field, there was a standing ovation and applause for the former Defense and Justice.
This week the meeting between the parties took place and it lasted just 10 minutes. Participating in the conclave were Juan Román Riquelme, Jorge Bermúdez, the Chelo thin and boy It will be on behalf of the club, but when Rossi’s agent received a counter offer to the last one they had presented, they decided not to listen to it and consider the negotiation closed.
Due to the dizzying sporting growth of the goalkeeper who emerged from Chacarita Juniors – who played basketball as a boy and in his first training sessions as a professional in the Funebrero he played 9– and the unstable economic situation in the country, his contract was out of date. The dollar cap on its bond had been set at 50 pesos and since the beginning of 2020 it has charged one and a half million pesos (translated into US currency, between 4,000 and 5,000).
In theory, the Council offered Rossi a contract of USD 11 million gross -with a dollar at the official value- until December 2026. In hand, the player would have just over USD 7 million left during that four-year period. Miguel González, the player’s representative, assured that if the gross amount offered had been the net one, there would have been an agreement. But not.
Unless the Boca Juniors leadership decides to change its position after hearing the cry of its partners this Saturday, Agustín Rossi will cease to be a Boca goalkeeper in mid-2023, or even earlier, if a suitable offer arrives.
The 10-minute meeting that blew up the relationship between Rossi and Boca Juniors: what is the millionaire difference that separates them Agustín Rossi’s agent broke down after the fight with the Boca Council and revealed how much the goalkeeper earns: “My impression is that I don’t play more”
