By date 21 of the 2022 Professional League of Argentine soccer, River Plate disappointed again and began to say goodbye to the fight for the championship: it lost agonizingly 1-0 at the Monumental Stadium against Talleres, with a goal by Ulises Ortegoza, and deepened the bad moment.
The team of “Muñeco” Gallardo was far from the top lot in the fight for the domestic competition, in the Copa Libertadores they were eliminated early against Vélez in the round of 16, and they only have the Copa Argentina left, where they will face Patronato for the rooms, in 2022 really for oblivion.
It is not only necessary to hold the reinforcements that arrived for this transfer market responsible, because the squad that the “Millionaire” already had was very important in terms of names and route, but when it comes to carrying out an analysis of the expectations and the money deposited in the footballers who arrived, it must be said that practically none were up to the task.
Among González Pírez, Tomás Pochettino, Esequiel Barco, Juanfer Quintero, Elías Gómez, Miguel Borjathe River Plate club spent about 15 and a half million dollars, without having positive returns in almost any of them; only a few flashes from the Colombian and a few goals from Borja, much less than expected when investing 7 million dollars in him.
The only one who passed the test was the boy Paul Solari, who did not seem to mind the River Plate shirt, scoring several goals and performing very well, especially in the first meetings with the Band. He ends up being very little in the total. It’s not his fault, of course. Gallardo and the leaders must make a mea culpa here.
