Godoy Cruz star David Ramirez insisted today that the government and Argentine FA were wrong to suspend the weekend's football action due to the death of former President Nestor Kirchner; while admitting that the break will actually benefit him as he returned from injury.
"This stoppage suits me great so I can recover physically," the number 10 stated in a press conference held at the Mendoza club on Friday.
'El Mago' has been out for the last two weeks after suffering a calf strain. Despite the personal benefit however, Ramirez was convinced that shutting down the stadiums was not the appropriate response to Sr. Kirchner's tragic death.
"I don't think that the football should have been suspended, as I consider that football must not be mixed with politics. The correct thing to do would be to have ordered a minute's silence in every stadium," the enganche opined.
Ramirez has been in wonderful form during the 2010 Apertura, scoring six goals in 11 games as the unfancied Tumba stay in the title fight, with the additional accolade of being the highest scorers in the league with 23. The Mendocinos are currently in fifth place, seven points from leaders Estudiantes.
