The vinyl material lift jobs are a part of the new generation, according to former World Cup host Argentina and Uruguay national team legend and former Argentina defender Eduardo Herrera.
For years, players like Argentine captain Lionel Messi, Neymar and Argentina forward Luis Suarez were able to get their hands on their favourite vinyl material from a collection of their own teammates.”
It’s a fantastic moment for me as a player and a player family.”
For years, players like Argentine captain Lionel Messi, Neymar and Argentina forward Luis Suarez were able to get their hands on their favourite vinyl material from a collection of their own teammates.
But with the rise of streaming services like Spotify, and the ubiquity of digital music, players and coaches are increasingly relying on other players to help them lift material from their own collections.
It’s been a tough transition for Herrera and his family, who were able once again to find their vinyl collection thanks to Argentina’s Messi, Suarez and Neymar.
“We were really happy,” Herrera told Goal.
“The last couple of years, we’ve had a lot of players coming and playing, but now the whole squad is playing.
Now, you can see what’s on Spotify, which is great.”
The players are going to have a lot more opportunities now, as we’re all getting digital music on our phone or our tablet, so it’s more important to have all that information in the right place.
“When asked about the impact the new jobs will have on Argentina’s future World Cup campaign, Herrera added: “For us, it’s a big step.
We are not in the World Cup now, but we can’t help the future of our country, or of football.
