Through tears, he dedicated a few words to the squad: “I want to give a big greeting to the entire coaching staff, to all of Conmebol, to maestro Lionel Scaloni, to Dibu, to Messi. I don’t name everyone because it could be all day. I am grateful, very happy. Happy to be here in front of the world champions, the best team in the world”.
“I would like to thank the entire team for giving us the victory, the Copa América and the World Cup. They are all thick, some cracks, some big. Until I grow up, I will carry them in my life”, expressed José, who managed to move the DT and the captain.
