Boca Juniors closed in the last hours Andrés Román, right-back that Miguel Ángel Russo made his debut in the first of Millonarios. The 25-year-old player was an express request to the Soccer Council headed by Juan Román Riquelme.
The Colombian was part of the Millonarios team since 2017 and He played more than 80 games with Los Embajadores. He was champion twice (Finalization Tournament 2017 and Super League of Colombia 2018), both from Russo’s hand.
Hugo Gottardi, Russo’s field assistant in the Bogotá team, revealed in an interview: “He goes very well on attack and has a very good mark. He defends more than he attacks. He is strong, fast and with a very good punch.”
The arrival of the Colombian comes after the frustrated negotiations with Talleres for Nahuel Tenaglia and will give Boca a break, since Julio Buffarini and Leonardo Jara did not continue at Xeneize after June.
