And he added: «I present my excuses to the fans, as I did with the managers, I think that he (Quintero) should not have gone to the National Team; he would have stayed with us in intensive care, well, supposedly not in the National Team, because It is a team that is in competition, playing, they are waiting for the players to respond to participate in the games; if he had stayed with us, suddenly we would already have ‘Juanfer’.

“The first guarantee is the doctor, there one says whether or not he is in good condition to go to the National Team. We said yes, appealing to experience, (thinking) that it was a minimal trauma and that he could be with the National Team. However, we were wrong,» he says.
