However, the own Tank was in charge of clarifying that it is not yet expired.

In a text published on his social networks, he announced that he will continue to fight to return to the fields: “Despite this blow, I want to bring peace of mind to those who love me. Because I am stronger than ever and determined to remain dedicated and committed to football so this is not over yet. “

Those who knew me and shared with me my extensive and flawless career know of my commitment and improvement day by day towards my passion, which is soccer. Despite this blow, I want to bring peace of mind to those who love me. Because I am stronger than ever and determined to remain dedicated and committed to football so that this is not over yet.
