"He was called up for the Copa America two years ago, he has had enough time to (learn how to) speak Spanish," said Gareca.

"It is something that I personally told him, that I would like him to speak Spanish. I consider it essential for communication.

"Communication with his team-mates, with me, with the coaching staff, with the people (and) with the press."
