Psychological aspects of the superfinal according to Enrique Hrabina
There is nothing better than the reflection of those who have already gone through high-performance sports experiences, in which mental pressure becomes the most important variable influencing players’ performance.
There is nothing better than the story of those who experienced similar situations to analyze the emotional state in which a team finds itself before such a meeting.
There is nothing better than Quique Hrabina’s words to get to know a little better how Boca is today, prior to the match of his life.
-How do you see the team mentally?
-What you see is that they have to have more character, there is just this historic final of Copa Libetradores, a very important test where they will have to strengthen the character. You have doubts, but on the 24th we’re going to see how they test themselves mentally. It’s the final, it’s in River with all its public, it’s the hardest test they have to face. There shouldn’t be anything stronger in the world than this final where everything psychological is put to the test.
-What do you call having character?
-It’s that strength, that sacred fire, it’s to be well in the most difficult moment, it’s that claw to overcome you when you’re more complicated. On November 24th, that limit point will be experienced.
-Have you ever lived such a limit situation in your career?
-I had to play a revenge game in Chile where a terrible mess was made with Colo Colo. We all ended the match by the punch, it was also historic. At that moment Chile was a hostile place: people were attacking, the police entered. From the moment we arrived until we left we had a very bad time, I don’t know how we left because there were denunciations, everything provoked by them. And we had to react. We couldn’t just sit around.
-How was the team faced with the tension?
-We were great, it was one of the best teams I was lucky enough to play for. They were all armed, they played a trick on us, we played from where we could. The football team was very good, but that climate didn’t favour us at all.
-How do you see the Boca fan?
-He’s the best fan in the world. He’s faithful, tireless, he’ll always be encouraging, he never rests. He feels like nobody else, he’s the soul of the team.
-A word for the players?
-That they put everything, that they put life, that they put all the love for this sport, all the claw, the heart, the passion and the desire to win. You have to risk everything to stay with a clear conscience.
