The only European experience of José ‘Pepe’ Chatruc It was back in 2003 when he went to try his luck at Grasshopper, a club of the Swiss First Division. After having good performances in Racing and San Lorenzo, the midfielder signed for the Swiss club and shared the squad with a young man Stephan Lichtsteiner, who until recently played for Juventus.

Without going any further, Chatruc did not have a good relationship with the Swiss winger and, in dialogue with TNT Sports, He said that they were about to go hands in training.

Lichtsteiner had to give it to me and he wouldn’t give it to meI always played on the outside, I had to keep it to play … And nothing … He made me a thousand and one until one day I caught him in training and I said, ‘Give it to me because I’m going to kill you.’ He answered me wrong and I said I was waiting for him outside. He kept me two hours waiting and he wouldn’t come backChatruc said.

And in the same line, he added: “Because apart from being a coward, then he came asking for forgiveness … It was cursed. An Argentinean told me that what I was saying was, ha … But I also told Lichtsteiner that I was not going to get anywhere and in the end he played fifteen years at Juve … What he did have was a barbaric physique. “

I recently spoke with a player from the Argentina National Team and he told me that he also had a fight. He has a arrogant, arrogant character … He looks at you badly, as if saying: ‘This is Sudaca’. And on the court I didn’t give it to you … It was bad, “Chatruc said.

And finally, the former Racing and San Lorenzo midfielder added: “Above him he looked at what clothes you had … They spoke Swiss-German, they looked at your clothes and they took off your leather. I had bought two briefs from a renowned brand and one day I repeated it … And one from behind told me that I put on the same one, that it was dirty … The Swiss were tremendous “, he closed.

After his time at Grasshopper, Lichtsteiner had a career in full swing and he wore the shirts of Lille, Lazio, Juventus and Arsenal from England. Today, at 36, he is in the Augsburg of the Bundesliga, but In his career, he must also score a fight with Pepe Chatruc.
