“The coach gave the talk about technical and tactical concepts and when he finished he looked at my son and asked him very seriously if he had said it all or if he had forgotten something. My son replied: Sorry coach, I didn’t do that to be ready for this opportunity, but if I put on a shirt , I would encourage myself to enter, which created an atmosphere of laughter and relaxation with the players who went to greet him one by one,” the Urupan leader revealed.
