On Wednesday, the 32-year-old midfielder was present at the Monumental stadium to participate in Leonardo Ponzio’s farewell game and that same night several media reported that the player I was seriously analyzing the possibility of returning to River due to conflicts on campus.
“It is totally false what came out of the Argentine press and obviously echoed in Brazil. It’s a bit hard for me to explain this. How am I going to have a problem with the technical commission if I was captain the last game and they allowed me to be able to travel to say goodbye to a friend,” said Fernández.
The former River ruled out differences with striker Hulk, and clarified that he has “a great relationship” with the figure of Mineiro. “We recently had lunch at his house.. He always welcomes foreigners. Going out to explain these things is a bit awkward, but I think this needed an explanation to be closed here because we don’t have any problem,” Fernández said.
Finally, he referred to his football future. “I am very happy here, I feel very comfortable. Unfortunately, this year we are not getting the results. There is a very good group. At the end of the year we will begin to see what we will do when my contract ends, but still a long way to go”.
The link between Nacho Fernández and Atlético Mineiro is valid until December 2023.
