More than two decades ago, the ‘chubby’ Antonio ‘E Turco’ Mohamed wasted magic on the fields of Mexican Soccer dressed in the mythical shirt of the Toros Neza, a team with which he was very close to achieving a league title in a final in which they fell to the Chivas Rayadas of Guadalajara in 1997.

Despite the tension of the moment, Mohamed made it clear that they never felt fear for any situation, confessing that they had time to share food with the hosts, who “took the victory in the game.”
“Obviously we lost, but the truth was we were not afraid, we had a good time with due precautions, we ate and left, we arrived at 11 in the morning and returned at 5 in the afternoon.
