Updated 10/13/2020 at 3:31 PM

Gianluca Lapadula He broke his silence and for the first time referred to the subject of Peruvian Selection, after providing an extensive interview to the Sky Sport portal. The Benevento attacker told everything about his relationship with the ‘Blanquirroja’, from Gareca’s visit in 2016 to the last tattoo that was made in reference to his Peruvian roots.

“Four years ago, coach Gareca came to meet me in Italy, we talked about this America’s Cup speech. But it was in conjunction with the Pescara playoffs and I thought that, at that moment, accepting the call of a national team to which I was little to tie would not have been fair, also because I had not earned the right to play that competition. I knew that I had won the playoffs to go to Serie A with Pescara, “he said.

On the other hand, Lapadula also referred to the tattoo that was made a few days ago where he highlighted his Peruvian origins, which many considered a nod to Ricardo Gareca. The former Lecce explained the reason for the image he now carries on his arm.

“I wanted to print on my skin what belongs to me. I have never had the opportunity to know Peru personally, what I know I know through the stories of my mother. In the last period my curiosity has grown, I have looked at many photos and many videos Including this video where you see a party in Paramonga by the Patron Saint of Solitude where many Inca symbols are used, including the flag of Tahuantinsuyo and headdresses with feathers: this is the reason for my representation ”, he specified.

That if, the 30-year-old player made it clear that an engraving that was made on the body does not mean that he will accept to play for the Peruvian National Team and that in case he makes the decision, the Peruvian coach will do it.

“It is definitely not because of a tattoo that I will tell Peru and the coach that I accepted the Peruvian team. If I ever had this thought, the first person to know would be Gareca. Today I know my roots much better, I am much more aware and proud that Peruvian blood is inside me, “he explained.
