I don’t want to be sad”, He valued in the press room of the Ciudad Deportiva de Barranco Seco, together with his family, the entire board of directors, as well as the squad of the Gran Canaria team.

After completing the medical testing process, she took the microphone. “I try to be brief and concise, to explain all the details of my situation.
