The former defense of Universidad de Chile plummeted against the albos over comments about the feat of the blue cast in 2011.
Rafael Olarra, former national footballer and benchmark for University of Chile, defended the historic title of the blue cast in the South American Cup 2011, this mainly against criticism by the bias of Colo Colo by saying that they won the ‘cardboard cup’ compared to the feat in the 1991 Libertadores Cup.
And in the Historias de Florete program in Redgol, the former Chilean national team plummeted against his traditional arch-rivals, reminding them of the fall in the 2006 South American Cup final against Pachuca.
“Colo Colo was in a Copa Sudamericana final and could not win it. He talks about the importance, or if it were so ‘cardboard’ they had not participated, they would say ‘I already have the Libertadores, why am I going to have the other one’, Olarra began saying.
“I feel like it hurt a lot. ‘Kalule’ (Meléndez) recently came out talking about the great disappointment of his career in not winning the Copa Sudamericana. So, based on that, you are seeing the importance, “added Olarra.
In the same vein he continued without questioning the colocolinos: “We have won so little internationally, and having an achievement, an important cup like the South American, such as the Europa League in Europe, are super important situations, of achievements that must be remembered. and review them every year because we are making history too. “
“We have to remember the things that are happening to generate changes. What did that Colo Colo do to achieve what he accomplished? What did this wonderful U do to win an undefeated championship? It is not easy to win it, and undefeatedly speaks of a team that went above all in South America, “she continued defending the feat despite not having participated in it.
“It is a lack of respect to give importance to certain cups. For me as a player it is as important to win national championships as the Chile Cup because it cost a lot, the teams were preparing, we had international cups in between. So, winning a Chile Cup, with the Libertadores Cup, with the National Championship, was super complex because you cling to your squad, and detracting from a cup is not the way I like and people often make mistakes, “concluded the current panelist. on sports channels.
