Signed from River Plate in July, Enzo Fernandez quickly established himself at Benfica. Good performances in Luz earned him a connection with Argentina, while the last call-up of Lionel Scaloni was before the formation of the team that will compete in the 2022 World Cup.
In an interview with TyC SportsSebastian Picaci, former coach of Enzo Fernandez at Devenza e Justicia, paid tribute to the 21-year-old midfielder.
“It is easy to describe Enzo Fernandez: character and talent. When he was at Devenza he played a final against Lanus. [taça sul-americana] As if he already had 100 matches in his legs. The following season, he asked to be the one to score the decisive penalty against Palmeiras [supertaça sul-americana, sendo que Enzo fez o 4-3 que decidiu o desempate]. It’s in his DNA to be important and to make you assume that. Then add to that the ability to get into the zone, the game’s readability quality and always be in the right place,” he shot.
Finally, Pikachu remembered a gesture from the player who had touched her.
“I wish him all the best, because he is one of those people who do not forget where he started. I remember after a game we lost against San Lorenzo, I arrived in the dressing room and got a message from him that the third goal was offside and he was pleased with the way we were playing. He concluded: “It is humility for those who do not forget their roots and it gives me a special affection.”
