Very close to Dario Benedetto during their season together at OM, Leonardo Balerdi regrets that his Argentinian compatriot was forced to change air last summer.
Barred by the presence of Arkadiusz Milik at the forefront of the OM attack, Dario Benedetto was therefore pushed towards the exit by Jorge Sampaoli during the last summer transfer window , and ended up joining Elche in the form of a loan with option to buy. Leonardo Balerdi, who rubbed shoulders with Benedetto last year at OM , had forged a close bond with his compatriot, and he is confided in the columns of Foot Mercato on his departure.
“It was a bit difficult”
“Yes, it's a bit of a shame for me. He was a very good friend in addition to being a great player. We did everything together. For example, while going to training, I would prepare the mate when he was driving or vice versa. It was a bit difficult, he's an Argentinian and a friend, but if he feels good where he is. I'm also happy for him, “said the OM center-back.
