The controversy between Sebastián Villa and Boca continues, a conflict that has in suspense the one who was considered not only the best footballer on the squad led by Russo but in all of Argentine football, in the words of Juan Román Riquelme.
A couple of weeks ago, the Colombian stood before the leadership and decided to stop going to training.
The football council did not accept an offer made by the Bruges club of Belgium to take over their services.
Days later, to make the situation more complex, he decided to travel to Colombia, leaving the club in the midst of a serious football crisis, with poor performances and without winning the local championship, despite the fact that he managed to eliminate River through the Argentine Cup.
This Friday, Villa decided to give his version of events and was surprised when he spoke for the first time about a serious health problem that his mother had to face.
He did it next to a photo in which the woman is seen in the middle of a treatment, surrounded by doctors and the footballer.
