The glove picked it up Marcelo Loffreda, present at the same conference, manager of Los Pumas: “They will understand that it is an institutional decision.

“In this case Julián was chosen, we are all very satisfied with that decision and with the support of the rest of the team, and fundamentally Pablo.
