OM – L’Albiceleste, Dario Benedetto no longer believes in it

Dario Benedetto believes it is logical that he is no longer selected with Argentina, which no longer fits into coach Lionel Scaloni’s plans.

Arrived at the Olympique de Marseille last summer from Boca Juniors, in Argentina, Dario Benedetto has been perfectly integrated into the team coached by André Villas-Boas. Author of 11 goals in 26 Ligue 1 matches played this season, the striker is also an important asset when it comes to construction, he who wants to be particularly mobile in the offensive sector. Enough to be called again with Albiceleste? The player himself no longer believes in it.

“I don’t see myself in the coach’s plans”

“Today I do not see myself in the national team, I do not see myself in the plans of coach Lionel Scaloni. I did not play my best matches during the friendly matches and during the qualifications I did not score a single goal”, he said, in an interview with Argentine media TyC Sports.

“I am aware of this and I am realistic. When asked who the attackers should be called I quote three: Sergio Agüero, Lautaro Martínez and Lucas Alario”, then explained Dario Benedetto. In Argentina, it is clear that the offensive sector is delivering particularly well. Therefore, it is difficult to find a place, but if he continues on his right line, the Marseille striker could again be considered by Lionel Scaloni.
