River goalkeeper Juan Pablo Carrizo claims that he barely had anything to do in Tuesday's clasico against Boca, won 1-0 by River...River Plate goalkeeper Juan Pablo Carrizo could not resist gloating at rivals Boca Juniors after the Millos won Tuesday's superclasico, claiming that he was more like a luxury spectator in the home goal as Boca struggled to create any chances.
'JP' was never really tested by the Xeneixes over the entire 90 minutes, as River battled to a 1-0 victory thanks to Jonathan Maidana's goal, and speaking on Thursday the outspoken number one made sure that everybody knew it.
"I was a luxury spectator: I didn't have any great work to do, apart from crosses and a couple of long shots," Carrizo told TyC Sports.
"I never thought that this would be the game where I had least to do!"
The 'keeper, currently at the Monumental on loan from Lazio, continued to emphasise that River must use this game as a launchpad, as the spectre of relegation remains uncomfortably visible in Nunez.
"The attitude that we showed made life difficult for Boca, but this has to be our starting point and the attitude has to be the same for every game," the Argentine international admitted, before finishing by backing interim coach Juan Jose Lopez.
"He can happily be our trainer. He has showed that he has great character."
