Walter Samuel: I have the hope of returning to the national team

In an interview with TyC Sports, Inter defender Walter Samuel said the following:

“I have the hope that I’ll return to the national team. One has to show their form with their club team and then you’ll see.”

“I’m happy because I’m playing regularly which is something that didn’t happen last season because of injuries.”

“At my age (31) there’s not much to prove, I am known. If I am called up I’ll be happy, if not, I’ll support the national team from the outside.”

“I will play hard until the last possible day for a call up. I’ve been following every callup list. I’m not going to deny it.”

“Tengo la esperanza de volver a la Selección”

El defensor del Inter habló en exclusiva con Indirecto y reconoció su ilusión de regresar al combinado nacional.

“Hasta el último día que tenga posibilidades me la voy a jugar”, afirmó.

Además, admitió: “Estuve pendiente de todos los llamados”.

Walter Samuel se mostró ilusionado con la posibilidad de vestir nuevamente la camiseta de la Selección Argentina y aseguró que seguirá luchando para lograrlo.

“Tengo la esperanza de volver”, afirmó el defensor del Inter en declaraciones exclusivas a Indirecto.

El ex Boca destacó que “uno tiene que tratar de demostrar en su club y después se verá”.

Además, el autor de uno de los goles de su equipo de ayer en la Liga de Campeones agregó: “Estoy contento porque estoy jugando muy seguido, que es algo que no me pasó el año pasado por las lesiones.”

Con respecto al buen momento que atraviesa en el Inter y una hipotética convocatoria, Samuel no quiso entrar en polémicas. “Con la edad que tengo (31 años) no hay mucho para demostrar, ya me conocen. Si me llaman estaré contento y si no apoyaré desde afuera”, manifestó.

El defensor indicó que “lo importante es la Selección y que le vaya bien en el Mundial, si el técnico elige a otros jugadores no pasa nada”.

Sin embargo, admitió: “Hasta el último día que tenga posibilidades me la voy a jugar. Estuve pendiente de todos los llamados, no lo voy a negar”.

    Pintadoazul,

    what are ur thoughts on Samuel??
    this was one guy i use to enjoy watching him play, obviously some minor errors on the field he always has done, but then again no one is perfect.
    every article i’ve read about Inter or European players have continued to say the same thing about him for the past 6-8 months, “he deserves to play on the NT again”. is he really playing that great??? is he “solid as a rock” as they claim he’s been this past year?

    I’ve watched most of the Inter games this season and Samuel is in good form.

    The thing about him is that he would be a huge improvement on Schiavi & Heinze. So, why not?

    I would like to see him called up.

    And at 31, Samuel is not too old.

    I think that having Demichelis & Samuel as the centerbacks would give Argentina a more solid backline than having players like Schiavi, Heinze, Coloccini and Otamendi in the lineup.
