In addition, Reinoso showed his dissatisfaction with the attitude of some characters in the current football world and their performance on the pitch. “There are many soccer players, but very few professionals. That hurts me because they have everything, the money they earn, the things they do and they don’t work. And then you see them talking and you say oh my God, how I would like to be there, “he said.

Finally, he was clear in asking for respect for the fans who pay a ticket to go to the stadium and for those who faithfully follow their team game after game. “Respect the fans, there are children who cry after a game and (the players) go out laughing ”, he sentenced.
