“With Wedding ring We played in Reserve (in River) and something that he taught me is how he played as a hitch, because after Napoli, when I returned to the JuveThey asked me to delay more and he, who played as ’10’, told me what I had to improve in that position. I learned from him and from (Juan Román) Riquelme, from what I saw him at that time. I think that today I am more complete in that because of the help of Fede and Roman “.
Together with Federico, they began a new stage in the MLS but they do not forget the time they shared a team in the River Reserve, and especially the games against Boca. “With Fede we are in Reserve and together we play little.

Having left those memories behind, Gonzalo expressed his feelings about the reunion with his brother in David Beckham’s team. “We are going to share our life again, beyond football.

We are going to share very nice things and I am happy that I can be at Inter Miami and rmake up for the lost time that football took from us“, revealed the former 9 of Juventus, Napoli and Real Madrid, among other teams.
On Federico’s side, regarding the opportunity to play with his brother again, he said “It was many years of seeing each other 2 or 3 days a year. And if we could … Because he was always much busier than I was, competing practically throughout the year. It is a joy to share time again, to have the opportunity to play for this club, with everything he has been telling me. For me it is a spectacular possibility to represent Inter Miami and be by their side. Hopefully everything goes well. “
