The role I will fulfill this year will be a second ‘five’, but I will have more freedom, without the responsibilities I had in the season playing as the only five”, said Fernández in an interview with ESPN argentina.

“Now, with a pivot at my side, I will obviously have much more freedom to move forward, but without forgetting to defend, of course. I have to help the team in this way”, continued the world champion with Argentina in 2022.

Finally, the Argentina midfielder commented on another one of his compatriots when designing the debut duel in the Premier League, this Sunday, at 12:30 pm (Brasília time), against Liverpool. The match will mark the debut of Alexis Mac Allister with the number 10 shirt for the Reds. The attacking midfielder played alongside Enzo during the world Cup not Qatar.

“We are thinking of doing our job in the best way. We know that it is always important to win the opening match. On top of that, we are playing in our stadium (Stamford Bridge). It will demand a lot, from the emotional to the physical aspect”, punctuated Fernández .

The 22-year-old also concluded by saying he will swap shirts with Mac Allister. “I’m going to exchange shirts with Alexis. I already have Brighton’s (the attacking midfielder’s former team) and now I’ll ask for 10 from Liverpool”.
