“I am not a president by normal standards. The fan wins me. When I see Aguada I am too passionate and I do not hide it. It doesn’t bother me to go with the shirt, carry the flag, a sweatshirt or sing and cheer. The truth is that I have much more fun as a fan than as a manager because it is like a ground wire. But when the team does not play, I get together with the leaders to try to professionalize and look for a return to give value to our club that already has it, but it was not taking advantage of it as it should and I think that now we are doing well way,” he told Ovation in March of last year.

“The love for Aguada is blood. There is no other explanation. In my family you are either from Aguada or you don’t belong anymore, ”she added.
