Then they said to him, ‘Leo we need to talk to you about something. For about six months now, we have received any salary and now the position we are in now is a difficult one. Since you are the captain of the team and you know us very well, we are asking for your help’, ” said Juan Pablo.
Leo immediately called his father and asked him to wire some money to take care them in this difficult condition.
