Guillermo Carmona gave an interview with Andy Vargas on the Tribuna Deportiva program for COCO radio station, the main station in the province of Havana. boss Artificial Clarify some issues and leave clues on others.
Carmona explained that the eighth of next November will be the start of training. On that day shooters and receivers will begin while the rest will join seven days later. The initial selection should be from 55 to 60 players.
They will meet in six matches with the Cuban team that will attend the Pan American Junior Games, for those matches the youngest will be given chances although in Challenge 13 and 14 there will be TV and more famous people will be called.
He explained, or rather, he mentioned the status of some players who are not sure whether they will be on the list for next season.
According to him, Michael Taylor wants to play with the industrialists but she is currently out of Cuba. Ariel Hekavaria is waiting to return to his homeland, and the Koreans “have it more complicated.”
“Korea has a slightly more complicated situation, because in this case he is doing some paperwork with the National Directorate and as expected we hope he can join, but he still has to do some official matters that we are not dealing with, it is the responsibility of the National Federation He commented on the Korea case in particular.
“We have reached out to him and I have already personally spoken to Ventura, the commissioner of Sancti Spiritus (I add that he is also the stadium coach for the Cuba U-23 team at the World Cup). It is said that we have not made any request letter, but we cannot do it because that is the request that the player himself has to do. Submit it.There was a limit for players to make this request and at the time Pedro wasn’t in the plans.
Then this happened and time was already running out and it wouldn’t be valid. So this is something that the province of Sancti Spiritus has to follow, they should decide if they accept it to play with us or if it remains in the hands of the National Committee.
“I think Pedro is a young athlete with a level and I will allow him to play, but it does not depend on the industrialists, we are ready to accept him, but we have to wait for this decision,” he announced.
In addition, he said on the program that the return of other athletes, especially shooters, is possible, although not certain.
Nothing, more cases of “repatriation”, that legal perversion of Cuban players can play in their country. Can you imagine the “return” of Albert Pujols to play with the Chosen Lions? Well, that.
