Jonas Gutierrez says English fans can moan about their poor World Cup . but the Argies are doing the same. Jonas Gutierrez: "It was a disappointing World Cup. "We had a good squad, good players, but Germany played a fantastic game against us and they beat us well. "Losing Maradona has also been hard, but we can't do anything about that now, so we have to prepare for the next game. "We have to think about playing our best for Batista right now, and then for whoever is in charge when we play in the Copa America in 10 months' time. "We start with two hard games against Manchester United and Aston Villa. It's going to be a very hard, long league, but we are aiming to be in the middle of the table. "You have a few teams who are very good, the big four, then Spurs, Aston Villa and Manchester City. "But we know we have qualities and we are going to fight for the top places."
