Happy Without a doubt, Norberto Briasco and Esteban Rolón live a special day. This Thursday, they were presented as the new reinforcements of Boca Juniors, after leaving Huracán. The players gave a press conference at Xeneize, with Jorge Amor Ameal, the president, as the first witness of the arrival of both.
The operation had been delayed because the Xeneize Soccer Council had agreed for 50% of Briasco’s pass, which later became 3.5 million dollars for 80% and, before signing the contracts, Huracán returned to change the conditions and asked for a figure for the entire pass.
Briasco solved the problem, resigned from the economic point of view to unlock and both are already from Boca. East Friday is the first day of preseason and Miguel Ángel Russo will have them available.
“It is a dream to be in Boca”, were the heartfelt words of both now ex-Hurricane, at the conference. And they showed great joy to arrive at one of the biggest clubs in the country and the continent.
“It is a dream for me and my family. I am very happy and I want to enjoy myself in this club … I lived days of uncertainty, many nerves, but they gave me peace of mind that things would be solved,” said Briasco.
“I have not spoken with Russo yet, yes with the Soccer Council. What can I offer? I will give sacrifice, effort. I will give myself to the maximum as this shirt deserves. It is a pride to be here and I leaned for Boca because it is special and I dreamed with this, “he remarked.
In addition, Briasco will remember, as he himself said, for a lifetime, the praise of Diego Maradona after facing him with Gimnasia La Plata. “I will never forget it,” he said excitedly.
For his part, Rolón said: “I feel comfortable in the middle of the field, it will depend on the coach whether to put one or two flyers in the center. On Friday I will meet my teammates and I only had contact at the time with Lisandro López.”
Later, he assured: “We thank Riquelme, the Football Council and the leaders for the effort to bring us. It is a very great responsibility and we are here to fulfill it as best as possible.”
