Pollo Véliz joins the controversy: “Today we don’t have Superclásico”

There are only three days left for Colo Colo and Universidad de Chile to meet at the El Teniente de Rancagua Stadium to animate version 190 of the Chilean soccer Superclassic, a match agreed for this Sunday, September 26 from 4:30 p.m.

A controversy that has surrounded these last days around this duel is the “denomination” and the use of language. There are already a couple who have come out to say that “classic” does not have much, less if we add the “super”, arguing that the numbers do not allow it to be defined that way.

One who joined this debate was Leonardo Véliz, who also pointed out in conversation with the RedGol site that today we do not have a “Superclásico” in Chilean football, stating that it is a term used to sell the game in a specific way.

“I read the topic that the superclassic is coming and the word super has already caused me to resent it. If we talk about superclassic, those who really deserve the name come to mind, and they also speak of classic when Colo Colo and La Católica play. Since I can remember, I never thought it was a classic “, he claimed.




In that sense, El Pollo said that “they measure it by the quality of the institutions more than anything else, by its powerful strength as institutions, because it has been lost in terms of football. More than anything for that, but nobody talks about the classic of colonies between Audax and Unión Española, or with Palestino, They gave it a classic character, because they were teams that gave a show. Colo Colo-Cobreloa in the 80s when Cobreloa was unbeatable in Calama and everywhere else. That is what produces me in the language, it is used in a wrong way in many aspects ”.

“Today we don’t have a superclassic. If it is because of rivalries, let them name Chile and Colo Colo… because of the rivalry, but classic, not super classic. We are always at it, giving it a superior connotation. Do you remember when Real Madrid was the galactic team, it was no longer a team of stars. The galacticos of Real Madrid… The Dream Team in the United States. It’s because you have to sell more and motivate viewers, “he added.

Already more involved in the field and anticipating what we could see in El Teniente this Sunday, the historic Cacique concluded that “Colo Colo today has self-esteem through the skies after having gone through terrible moments in the last tournament. He scores goals, he is winning and he has done things more good than bad. They have five points of advantage above and that is an element that inflates Colo Colo for Sunday ”.

Albos and azul will face each other under the arbitration of Roberto Tobar this Sunday, September 26 at El Teniente de Rancagua starting at 4:30 p.m. and you will be able to follow him LIVE, LIVE and MINUTE BY MINUTE by DaleAlbo.
