The strong confession of Richard Sánchez and the difficult time he spent in America

Paraguayans abroad

8 Sep 19:54

The América de México of the Paraguayans Bruno Valdez and Richard Sánchez is going through an unparalleled moment in the league of their country, where they achieved eight consecutive victories last weekend, setting a historical record for the club.

But before starting this good moment, the “Eagles” were at the bottom with the worst negative streak in their history and that led to the departure of the previous coach, Santiago Solari, for the arrival of Fernando Ortiz, who had his time in Paraguay as DT a few years ago and now he triumphs in the powerful Mexican team.

The one who referred to that bad moment and confessed that he had a bad time during that time was the Paraguayan Richard Sánchez. At a press conference, the midfielder assured that he even received threats from fans.

“I want to touch on a difficult topic. They sent me messages and I received threats when we were with the previous coach (Santiago Solari). They said that I had problems with him and the truth is that it never happened. I was never separated from the team, I came with an injury that prevented me from playing and that nobody knew. Nobody pays attention to that and they start talking and throwing out things that are not true, “said the ex-Olimpia.

And he added: “Today that we are well, everyone speaks very nicely about us, but when we went through that bad moment, only the family was there and the group stayed together. Now we are having a nice present and we have to enjoy this.”
