Emiliano Tade Regards Al Ittihad Match as a Gift and Commends Marcelo Gallardo
Argentinian star Emiliano Tade, currently playing for Auckland City in New Zealand, considers the upcoming match against Al Ittihad in the FIFA Club World Cup as a "gift." He commended the Argentinian coach Marcelo Gallardo, who is in charge of managing the team "Al-Ameed."
The match between Auckland City and Al Ittihad is scheduled for next Tuesday in the preliminary round of the FIFA Club World Cup 2023 in Saudi Arabia.
Tade expressed his excitement in statements to the Argentine newspaper "La Pagina Millonaria" on Wednesday, saying, "I consider the match against Al Ittihad a gift since we will be playing against players like Karim Benzema and N'Golo Kanté. It's an incredibly wonderful experience."
He continued, "I admire Gallardo's style, even though I am not a River Plate fan (the team he coached in Argentina), and I am very happy to face him. As a football player, I feel proud because we are approaching the level of European play."
The 35-year-old star concluded his remarks by stating, "Gallardo has shown that Argentina is capable of playing European-style football, and the Argentinian football character is currently changing."
This sheds light on Gallardo's impact in altering the perception of Argentinian players seeking to transition to Europe, as he has brought a style of play closer to what is observed on the European continent.
