“We went looking with ‘Chicho’ a little between the two of us. We were inside a bowling alley, one came out first and the other through the back. We were like 20 meters away whore each other and they separated us, pero later I charged it … “, said the ex-zaguero between laughs.
The Argentine recalled that he then went to Puebla from Mexico to play and took the opportunity to recommend ‘Chicho’, since the Mexican team was not having a good time.
“I went to the draft in Mexico. They transferred me from Atlante to Puebla and the coach told me that they were looking for a central midfielder. It was a lousy team, fighting relegation. I thought who could I recommend, someone that i hate so that he would come to suffer with me and I recommended to Serna “, Trotta said.
