"Seeing Gallardo with the tie moved me"

A gesture is worth a thousand words, and Marcelo Gallardo knows it. That the River coach decided to wear a tie in homage to the emblematic one that Ángel Labruna used in the superclassic was an act of greatness and that in turn surprised all the fans. Including Omar Labruna, son of the Ugly, who told Ole that “I didn’t know anything” about MG’s idea and that when he saw him on the court “seeing him with his tie moved me.”

It was not just any look. No. That little piece of clothing has enormous significance within the River world. It is part of its giant history. That tie, for example, was the one that accompanied Ángel Labruna, for example, in Metropolitano 75, when the club managed to break an adverse streak of 18 years without being able to win. And over the years it became a cabal for the Ugly, one of the greatest glories of the club that celebrates River Fan Day precisely every September 28 in memory of the birth of the eternal coach who won six titles on the bench.

In fact, that tie – the same one that even inspired the brand that dresses River to design a model inspired by it in 2016 – by Labruna It is one of the historical pieces found in the showcases of the River Museum. And that’s why for Omar, Angelito’s son and who was a River player between 1976 and 1981, the gesture that Gallardo had “It struck me deep.”

“I found out while on the court and, finding out later, I knew that it was something that was closed with huge padlocks so that it would not leak: I think only he and the person who did it knew.. That’s why it turned out the way it did and it was so surprising for everyone from River Plate. My total gratitude goes to Marcelo for that beautiful gesture in a special week in which we launched the Ángel Labruna Foundation at the Museum “, Omar explained to Ole.
