Now I will arrive at the club, I will speak with the “Cacique” (DT Alexander Medina) and we will see there. Vélez is going to help me a lot at this point in my career, which is my last war. Now the important thing is the day to day, and being physically well”, pointed out the defender who bets on getting ready to play in Qatar the fourth World Cup of his career for the Uruguayan team.
