Twenty years after one of the most glorious stages in the history of Boca, the tail slams of that group led by Carlos Bianchi that reached the top of the world by beating Real Madrid and that continues to be the last team to win two have not stopped. consecutive times the Copa Libertadores.

The internal ones, the egos, the jerks with the leaders, the disputes off the court that were marginalized when the ball began to roll, the bad faces, the shouts of goals ... Everything can be synthesized in two great spheres: the one governed by Martín Palermo and the one headed by Juan Román Riquelme, the two greatest banners of the unforgettable cycle.

“We saw impressive things at the football level. But also, of the others; We saw everyone's children being born ... We weren't friends, we all went out to eat together, each one had their affinity and it's normal.

I experienced the kidnapping of Roman's brother, for example

. We were playing ball and he said that to me. That's why I get excited. The medals and that crap no longer serve me. What I see is that they were badly advised and surrounded to say 'you are more than the other'. But not from them ”,

Cristian Traverso

, a former Boca midfielder

, began his story

when he saw a photo of the celebration in the second goal against Real Madrid in Tokyo.

"One of the protagonists told me about it," he said.

The story was not as some told it.

That's why when you have a problem you have to attack it at the root,

we missed the chance to continue


There were people around and leaders who were just trying to bring water to their mill ”.

In this sense, Traverso said that "there was a right time" to determine the separation between Palermo and Riquelme, "but there are events that are happening ..." "I then over the years I learned what it

was like


I get

excited because I see these guys and look what they are, they are monsters.

I'm from Boca, I played with them,

“The other day I was talking to a boy from that campus and we always remember things. Each later made his life, some did badly, others well and others more or less. But what Román does about having the club's people working there seems very good to me. In the labura club (Claudio) Benetti, who went to ask for a job.

I congratulate Román because he got involved in politics

. And if I have something to say to him, I tell him hand in hand, ”said Traverso.

And he continued: “These guys gave Boca the glory.

The other day I uploaded a photo with Martín (Palermo) and one of them wrote to me… I am not a friend of Martín but I appreciate him very much.

It is not that one is more and the other is less.

The two (for Palermo and Riquelme) are idols of the club.

And I'm going to fight for this, I'm going to fight so that there is no more crack in the club.

And if I have to fight for 20, 30 years, I'm going to do it

because these guys can't be further separated for the convenience of others
