San José, July 21, 2021 (elmundo.cr) – The fans expect the same intensity of play from Bryan Ruiz when he was 26, 28 or 30 years old. That is not possible because the passage of time weighs on even the most professional.
The captain of the Tricolor received criticism in recent games, many questioned his contribution against Guadalupe and social networks took it against him in the minutes prior to his score against Jamaica.
The referent had a brief attention to the press and made it clear that he is in La Sele for what coach Luis Fernando Suárez considers.
«There are people who have not understood that my role in the national team is different. I told the teacher that my role is to help him lead the group in whatever he needs, whether it be five minutes, 90 minutes or on the bench if that is the case, “said the Alajuelense footballer.
In addition, he pointed out that every amount of minutes he plays is because Suárez considers it that way.
«About playing 60-65 minutes, it is the coach’s decision. I told him that if he thinks I can help him, he would be here. When he does not consider it that way, there will be no problem, we all have a cycle, I am close to turning 36 years old, “said the player in the mixed zone after the victory against Jamaica.
