Caballero looks towards Argentina

Willy Caballero has admitted that he hopes his form for Malaga this season will be recognised at international level.

“I wish I could get the chance to play for Argentina, hopefully, God willing,” the Santa Elena-born goalkeeper told reporters today.

“But, I’m not obsessed with this. You live it as a passion that is part of a footballer, the desire to go to the national team.

“But right now it is not in my hands, right now I am thinking only about entering the field and doing my best, everything else is a bonus.”

The ‘keeper has kept six clean sheets from the team’s eight games played so far this term and only conceded twice so far in La Liga, contributing to the team’s unbeaten start.

“It is nothing, there have been only five games played. We are working had to continue along the same path.

“We have to keep playing, keep putting in good performances and it should follow that the team will keep getting positive results.”

The Costa del Sol side welcome Real Betis to La Rosaleda this coming weekend for an Andalucian derby.

“They well well because they move the ball around well. Malaga will keep trying to add three points to the table from every home game and has to match every opponent that we face.

“We are aware of the quality of the players Betis have and how they play. We hope that the preparations this week are good and that the home team wins this derby.”
