« I want to thank the award that they give me, for me it has a special value because it was decided by vote of the coaches of the teams that participate in the tournament that Leeds obtained. The fact that they are the ones who decide to highlight or reward my participation is very valuable to me, ”said Rosario.
In the closing of his speech, the Argentine strategist stated that “the greatest recognition is towards the players, who are the ones who assume the most difficult thing in football, which is to play, act, compete and in this case succeed. Coaches are always the product of the players we have to lead and in this case I want to emphasize my appreciation towards them. Also to the organization that rewards me ”.
