Exit River: “It is very hard to assimilate. Not long ago I was with them, it is difficult to leave a place where you were happy, you are comfortable, but we know that in life one goes for new challenges, challenges. It was time to go for a new one. I challenge, but it is always difficult to leave a plant as beautiful as River’s. I am leaving a wonderful place that I am going to miss “.
Back to Europe: “I had in mind to continue at other times I was able to leave but I wanted to continue. Sometimes the European dream is not how they paint it, so I had peace of mind to enjoy River and compete at the highest level. At this moment I did feel the need to continue with new challenges”.
His love for the red band: “I identify with the style, the mentality. I entered this world River and I fell in love with his idea, that caught my attention. If the club wants me to return, I will always have that illusion of returning to this special place ”.
The trip to Germany: “It cost the family a lot because it is difficult for them to believe that I am not in River, that I am not going to play today. I was adapted to Argentina, I felt comfortable, but I am convincing them that it is time to change. The other week I travel to Germany, Tuesday or Wednesday ”.
