After the 2-1 to Empoli Lucas Biglia took off for London where his Argentina will play two friendlies against Croatia and Portugal during the break.

“What matters in football is to show in the best way all the things you’ve done on the training ground. Our system is based on high pressure and our attitude is very aggressive which is not easy to develop. Against Germany and Brazil we already showed good things on the pitch. Our system was radically changed and this will help me grow as a player.”

Biglia also spoke about the return of Carlos Tevez to the national team:

“I’m happy about Tevez. He is a very important player for Argentina and is a very good player. I am privileged to be in the national team surrounded by galactic players. Carlitos will surely make a difference. I’m quite sure that he will fit like a glove in the group.”

After that Il Principito talked about his fitness, about the broken foot he had which prevented him from joining Argentina on the Asian tour.

“I still feel a bit of pain and that is why I still play with a cap. We all start from scratch and want to be important parts of the team.”

Biglia was asked about his opinion on what coach Martino said about him:

“What he said means a lot to me. It means I’m doing well. Such compliments are always good but I have to continue working hard.”

A question about the World cup final and his team mate Miroslav Klose was also a part of the interview:

“I’d rather not remember that night. It was a huge disappointment to all of us.”

Finally Biglia was asked about Real Madrid’s proposed interest in the summer and his desire to join the 10 time Champions League holder one day.

“There was a chance to join Real Madrid but since the interest came very close to the transfer market deadline everything came to a quick end. I am happy at Lazio and I want to keep on growing as a player.”
