After the World Cup in Qatar 2022, tempers between Argentines and Mexicans heated up. Much of this media duel was unleashed by the influence of journalists who disqualified football from both countries. One of them was Flavio AzzaroArgentine journalist who has once again been linked to a “mocking” comment about Mexican soccer. But this time the journalist himself has assured that the statements circulating in the media they are false.
“Mexicans will be able to have a Tesla factory, but they will never have a World Cup. that’s your reality”, Azzaro would have declared, according to the Bolavip outlet. These statements are related to recent announcement by Elon Musk, founder of Tesla, in which he assures that he will make large investments in Nuevo León.
However, the Argentine journalist used his social networks to deny the phase that has caused such a stir. Azzaro assures that he has never said that phrase and challenged the medium to put the audio as evidence.
Azzaro and his past with Mexican soccer
The repercussion of the journalist is related to other statements from the past. It would not be the first time that Flavio Azzaro attacks Aztec football and, for this reason, it is followed much more closely by the Mexican media. His main controversies were generated during the Qatar 2022 World Cup.
“The MX league is a minor competition. How are they going to blame Tata Martino? Be good to him and I don’t know load it all. think that at least he does know what it is to play a fifth game in a World Cup”, said the journalist during the World Cup.
