“Por qué su desprecio al fútbol empequeñece a Borges”: Alberto del Castillo

Alberto del Castillo escribe:

La crítica futbolística de Borges se sustenta en el reproche hacia este deporte como manifestación popular, refiriéndose así al fútbol casi como una nueva forma de MK Ultra. “Es una invención mediática para manipular a los pueblos”.

Una crítica con un componente, por lo tanto, más político y social que intrínseco al fútbol. Lo cual no deja de ser curioso: Borges no mostró afinidad con ninguna doctrina política y su análisis del fútbol, sin embargo, posee un cariz cargado de prejuicios y tintes elitistas.

En una ocasión, después de un largo rato hablando con El Flaco Menotti, entonces seleccionador de Argentina, y tras saberse sorprendido de que su criada le hubiera pedido que le trajera un autógrafo, Borges le dijo: “Qué raro, ¿no? Un hombre inteligente y se empeña en hablar de fútbol todo el tiempo”.
