One is still linked to Argentine football and the other went abroad to continue his career. Both coincided in many seasons on the campus led by Marcelo Gallardo And, at the age of 34 and in the epilogue to their career as professionals, they project themselves as coaches and even analyze the formation of a technical body in the medium term.
Ariel Rojas, current Atlético Tucumán midfielder, revealed that he is considering the chance to launch himself as a strategist with Jonatan Maidana in the future.
“I am doing the AFA course, I have only one subject left. Then I have the face-to-face exam in Buenos Aires to finish it. It is one of the things that I feel that today I like and attract. I know what it takes to be a coach and what to prepare for. It does not mean that tomorrow you will be a coach, yes or yes, “explained the Chinese Leandro Vaquila in an Instagram interview.
Regarding his relationship with Maidana, who is now a member of the Mexican Toluca, he went deeper: “We agreed that if I am a coach, obviously I would love for him to be part of the coaching staff. Joni as a partner was not perhaps a person to talk so much, but when he spoke, he did very well and was very punctual with what he said. He was highly respected. It is something that was pending ”.

When asked about who would be the command voice in front of a campus, Rojas replied: “Joni was highly respected for his work, day by day. He sets the example many times without speaking. I know it could be a very important piece. ”
And the moment a user commented “Gallardo is leaving and we are waiting for you”, he was cautious: “No, no. That they do not withdraw me yet, that there are a few more years left. Marcelo has a while because with everything he has done he has to stay as long as he wants ”.
Rojas (8 titles with River) and Maidana (11) dream of putting DT’s diver on the Millionaire in a few years to continue embroidering stars.
