Oscar Ruggeri has spent years being one of the most influential characters in the Argentine football scene. 'El Cabezon' never leaves any doubt when he puts himself in front of the mic.
This exact thing happened in an recent speech for 'ESPN', where he assured that "I would put Messi in charge as an urgent embassador there. The Chinese will melt in front of him, they love him. He would be able to help with a single phone call. He is so influential in the world that he could surely make a difference".
The ex-trainer of San Lorenzo refererred in his declarations to the recent information released regarding the donation of 50,000 doses of vaccines against COVID-19 by the company Sinovac Biotech Ltd.
To make this possible, Ruggeri proposed the most innovative technique. "Give him the title of Argentine embassador. If there is any obstacle meaning no vaccines arrive, he will resolve it. If he helps to speed up the process, even if it's minimal, that would still be worth more than winning ten World Cups."
