Of course, the departure of a coach like Tabares is a hard blow for the team. For a long time it seemed that if there is something unshakable in the world, it is Uruguay in the World Cup and this powerful old man on the bench. But all good things come to an end. And his 15-year career in the national team as well.
It will also put an end to Suárez, Cavani, Godín, Muslera, Cáceres, Coates… Uruguay will definitely enter into a deep restructuring. Due to the expansion of the number of participants in the tournament in 4 years, the team will surely make it to the tournament, but which one?
In Uruguay itself they like to say “Everyone has their own story, and we have our own football” (coach Ondino Viera’s phrase, said in the 1966 World Cup). In the country, other sports are poorly developed (with the exception of basketball), football is really an object of religious worship here.
The future depends on how quickly Darwin Núñez becomes the leader and who will train him. So far, Diego Alonso, like the Liverpool striker, has not had enough experience. Apparently, this team’s perspectives are now more mysterious than others.
Of one thing I am sure: the Uruguayans will not give up and new stars will grow. Maybe not at the snap of a finger, but he never had the choice of players that Argentina or Brazil had.
