It was a 10 "of the past", with an appetite for a goal . He played with Redondo, with Pipa Gancedo, with Flaco Dollberg and Silvio Rudman. He was at a company to move to Racing. Caruso Lombardi, annoyed by his dribbling, asked for complaints in the field, but eventually stopped friends.
Although his name is always linked to media conflicts with Silvia and Guido his brothers older and famous, there was a time when Marcelo Süller was the most famous member of his family. Football players emerged from the Park Club's generous quarries, passing through the lower Argentine juniors ("I left because I didn't ask and went to the bank or left out"), debuted at First of all boys with just 1
"In the underworld I was a goal matcher and I played in 9. When I debuted in First, I was small and the centers were huge. And the coach (Ricardo) Trigilli gave me the responsibility for the game. He resembled Mauro Zarate, who can being 10 or forward delayed played free and only scored when we dropped the ball. I had to deal with it, says Marcelo, 47 years old.
In Parque, where he began to build his relationship with the ball, he went in category 71 and driven by the father of Checho and Fernando Batista (today coach of the U20 National Team). And he surrounded and tasted the cracks formed in that football school. " We were masters every year, in Division 69, along with Redondo and Rudman when the child rented balconies, they made you 20, 30 goals and the finished pineapple . she is described. "I was also with Negro Cáceres, Pipa Gancedo, Danielito López Maradona, Diego's nephew, Flaco Dollberg," he longs for these times.
] Since Marcelo Süller had to break in first in more romantic times. "We won two mangoes, they gave us a ticket for two changes a year, we couldn't give away shirts because you broke the games …" he explains. It was in the first step, in the late 80s, when his good moves and ability to draw attention to several Primera teams, among them Racing .
"We were going to play four players. We had asked (Nelson) Chabay, who was the coach, we had seen the lead, we found out and I decided to stay in all the boys because I wanted to play . The only one who played for those who went to Racing was (Gustavo) Minervino, they put him in 3 and bad things for him a dance, "he explained why he said no to Academia . And after that episode, 1990, he broke the meniscus and ligaments in his right knee, in a match in Santiago del Estero. "I missed the final for the campaign with Deportivo Laferrere, I did the recovery with Jorge Bombicino, the Chinese Kiniologist, and after eight months I went back to the courts.
– And you didn't regret saying you said about Racing?
– I did not regret it, I was comfortable in all boys, before I went to San Martin de Tucumán, who was in Primera, I already had a house, a car, everything, but all boys He asked me to quit the tournament and I broke up, Velez was also close, but I didn't want to put peso on the pass or loan.
-You came back and got to play abroad
-Me got a test at Wisla Krakow in Poland, they saw me play and they wanted to take me a year, but the businessman who offered me saw that he liked how I played and he took me to tests in Bruges in Belgium, in Schalke 04 and in Borussia Dortmund They loved me, but there was no place, because then it was only two S if a foreigner per team, one could go in to play and the other went to the bank. In the end, I managed to make Wisla Krakow, but it was a mess with my passport. The businessman arranged the sale of 50% of the passport and charged him. All boys had written a loan for one year. They sent me to training on the third and later they gave me Igloopol Pegrotour, also from Poland. At that time, there was no internet, I just announced by letter with my family. They didn't pay my salary, just the hotel and the food. And they saw me day and night so I wouldn't leave, because of the problem with my passport. They took me to training and returned to the hotel. I went to save my dad. One day he stopped in the room to cover me and I ran away. I took a train to Germany, by mail, and from there a flight to Buenos Aires. The next day I was looking for the room and it was my dad, not me. He had to get into the embassy so he could go back.
– And after all, can you continue playing without any problems?
-I returned i92 and stayed four months because you gave me the passport. Until he helped me Argentine football players a little afterwards, I went back, we got up, but All Boys football had been managed by an insurance company and several players played. In turn we went to demand an increase, still earning the minimum. When I decided not to sign, they sent me to train with Tercera.
There, Marcelo Süler's course began for other Ascent clubs. He moved to Almagro, led by Ricardo Trigilli, coach who had promoted him in Albo . There he was two years old and stood out in a group of players who got a name, like Alberto Yaqué and Héctor Santillán. His ability gave him "enemies" in the field, which happened with a Ricardo Caruso Lombardi . "When we played against Defensores de Belgrano and he had to score me, he couldn't take me and shouted:" Negro, stop running, I go down and I have to eat. "Then we became friends."
His career as a football player went hand in hand with media-deficient media in his media. " When I started, Silvia still had no note, I remember she even went to court once to see me with (Silvio) Soldán, but those who were always my parents . My brothers were jealous of because my dads were happy that I made a goal or it went well, he says.
After his stint with José Ingenieros, his career began to fluctuate. He went to San Miguel, then to Deportivo Armenio. financial problems, I worked separately in a company with my son-in-law, in football I got more with prices than with pay, but I did not get the numbers for travel, we practiced in Maschwitz Engineer and set up caravan and I took them to all my colleagues with my old man's car, "he reminds. Then he went to Comunicaciones, where he officiated as a player coach." I had been broken, I was recovering and it was a battle between most veteran players and the coach, oh ch my teammates asked me to steer, ”he says. Lamadrid was the last stop.
-Why do you think you never played in Primera?
-I did not come to Primera because I was calm, for comfort. I played to play, because I liked to play; I also missed my hunger. It was talk about me that I could go here, there; Capable had magnified me. And then I realized that you have to work every day, every day you have to work hard, and the one who thinks he is otouchable is wrong. Football is the most beautiful, but with responsibility, if you leave everything, it gives revenge. Those who strive for, those who are responsible, are the ones who arrive. The big example I give is the Flaco Julián Maidana (former central score for Racing, Talleres and Newell). When we played in all boys I didn't even have to eat, I lived in a small guest house in Flores; the room was the size of a bathroom. And then he was champion in First, he lives in Brazil, he is an entrepreneur. A monster I had no sneakers, I did not know the parents, it was taken by another classmate's father to train. That guy was really hungry. Luck also plays, but character, responsibility and hunger are the ones that make the difference.
-You went away from football, wouldn't you want to be switched in any way?
-I'll live on the Atlantic coast, where everything is quieter. I would like to work in training, in infantile or lower categories, in order to be able to Polish boys, to train them in respect. As a coach I am from the old litter, for me football is 4-3-3. I don't like watching football today, the technology was lost, it's very physical, we bring players from outside when they don't give them anymore in Europe. Everything is distorted, there is no project. Today, the players are a number. It is all very schematized, there is no place for inspiration. With an armed team, well stopped tactically, you fight with the tournament … Look at defense and justice: it was not champion because of inexperience in fighting. I'm from another era: I liked to see the biggest, Juan Román Riquelme.
