In addition, he wishes the player the best in the future and thanks him for what he has done at this stage, where he was important in obtaining the local title.
The Boca Juniors statement:
Boca Juniors reports in relation to the player Guillermo Fernández that, although the club had agreed with the Cruz Azul club of Mexico a purchase option that expires on December 31, in recent days the player communicated that he did not want to continue in the institution.
For this reason, at the will expressed by the player, Boca will not make such a great purchase effort, which is why it has made the decision not to use the current option.
Having clarified this, Boca wishes Guillermo Fernández many successes in his future stage and thanks him for his professional contribution in 2020.
Since the midfielder arrived at Xeneize in January 2020, Miguel Ángel Russo considered him a fundamental piece for his scheme and gave the team more play in the midfield. The very good level shown and the player’s desire to stay, made the negotiations to start to stay.
In the last hours the possibility and interest of Celta de Vigo from Spain arose, who hired Chacho Coudet as coach, with whom he shared at Racing Club.
Boca will face Talleres in La Bombonera for the third date of Zone 4 of the Professional League Cup on Sunday 14 and it is expected that ‘Pol’ Fernández will start, taking over the midfield due to the large number of casualties in the team by the date of CONMEBOL qualifiers.
