Marcelo Bielsa, “loco” viejo no aprende a hablar inglés

La figura de Marcelo Bielsa levanta pasiones donde quiera que vaya. En Argentina luce una especie de “feligresía”. Desde su llegada a la segunda división de Inglaterra con Leeds, la cadena ESPN comenzó a transmitir la Championship. Dos temporadas después, “el loco” logró ganarla y regresar al equipo a la Premier.

Filósofo del fútbol, Marcelo Bielsa es tomado como precursor del buen fútbol, aunque los títulos no lo acompañen. Su paso por Chile es recordado como el salto de calidad de una gran generación de futbolistas. También llevó a la final de la Europa League al Athletic de Bilbao; como contraparte, asumió el gran fracaso de la selección Argentina de fútbol en el Mundial del 2002.

Para la temporada 2020-2021 de la Premier Legue “el loco” regresó. Con su vuelta también lo hizo la idolatría de los argentinos, que en sus programas deportivos solo hablan de Bielsa, así como los colombianos de James con el Everton.

Y es que el rosarino siempre será genio y figura. Arrancó ante el campeón Liverpool en Anfield en un partido que perdieron 4-3. En el encuentro con los medios volvió a ser el de siempre, nuevamente protagonizó uno de sus acostumbrados episodios con su traductor; esta vez uno con acento colombiano que terminó llevándose un llamado de atención.

Pero esto no es nuevo, ya Marcelo Bielsa es famoso no solo por su exigencia en el campo, sino en las ruedas de prensa. Y es que en sus aventuras por Europa siempre ha exigido un traductor. En su paso por Francia con Marsella y Lille no habló francés. En su tercer año en Inglaterra tampoco ha hablado inglés.

“Sólo quería decir que mi inglés es malo y me sentiría avergonzado si me escucho hablarlo, pero quiero mejorarlo”. Esto lo dijo leyendo un comunicado en una rueda de prensa al frente del Leeds en la segunda inglesa. Allí lo acompañó Salim Lamrani, su traductor en Francia con quien también tuvo episodios curiosos.

El colombiano que lo acompaña en el Leeds, no pega una

La aventura de Marcelo Bielsa por la Premier ha sido un suceso. Es una figura mediática con gran trascendencia en América Latina. Sus ruedas de prensa son clases teóricas de fútbol, pero necesitan de un intérprete que se las haga llegar a los periodistas ingleses.

Recientemente Bielsa ha sido asistido por un hombre con acento colombiano. En la previa del debut ante Liverpool, ya le pidió explicaciones sobre la traducción que hizo el intérprete sobre la frase “matices que lo hacen distinto”. Al final aceptó la postura de su compañero, pero no muy convencido.

El segundo episodio ocurrió posterior al encuentro en Anfield. En pleno césped le pidió al traductor que hablara más alto para que los periodistas le pudiesen escuchar. Se lo dijo un par de veces.

Su experiencia con el traductor español-español

En la temporada del 2015 Marcelo Bielsa estaba en Francia, con el Marsella. Sería su primera experiencia en Europa en un país de habla no española. Ya venía de trabajar con el Athletic de Bilbao.

En una rueda de prensa, el argentino se presentó con su intérprete como de costumbre. Uno de los periodistas le hizo una pregunta en español y el mismo se la repitió al entrenador, en español también.

Salim Lamrani, su sombra en Francia e Inglaterra

Salim Lamrani fue quizás su traductor más famoso. Se conocieron luego de la llegada al Lille y juntos vivieron momentos de tensión y risas.

El francés no era traductor como tal, pero se manejaba muy bien con el inglés y el español. Según una nota que le hizo el diario argentino La Nación, Salim es doctor en Estudios Ibéricos y Latinoamericanos de la Universidad Paris Sorbonne-Paris IV.

Acompañó a Bielsa en el Lille y luego en el Leeds una temporada. En la actualidad es profesor de historia de América Latina en la Universidad de La Reunión, un territorio de ultramar francés frente a las costas de Madagascar.

Su experiencia con “el loco” estuvo llena de momentos curiosos. Como aquella rueda de prensa en la que se confundió en una explicación de Bielsa sobre la lesión de un jugador.

En otra oportunidad, ya en Inglaterra, “el loco” lo corrigió en medio de un comentario de un jugador lesionado en el que el traductor había interpretado sus palabras al revés.

Ese es el estilo de Bielsa, estricto, rígido, muy serio. A pesar de haber asegurado que tomaba clases de inglés, el argentino sigue acompañado de un traductor. Es un aviso para el que está y los que vengan, deben cuidar cada una de las palabras del “loco”.
