Marcello Gallardo said why he named Julian Alvarez as punishments

Marcelo Gallardo said why he gave Julián Álvarez, a young man aged 18 and with a few minutes in the first division, responsibility for making the fifth punishment in the decisive round against Gimnazia in the Argentine Copa semifinals.

"I had a penalty kick because it has a hierarchy and because I won a penalty shootout a week ago," said Gallardo, Laughs. "I had a belief that he would have no problem with this responsibility and he kicked it very well," he added.
