After the long trip of the United Arab Emirates, the River team celebrates the conquest of the Copa Libertadores in the Monumental stadium before its people.
However, three key title players can not be. They are Juanfer Quintero, Rafael Santos Borré and Franco Armani.
Rafael Borré and Juanfer Quintero were an important part of the consecration of the river.
The two Colombians decided to travel directly to their home country to spend the holidays and enjoy short vacations with the family. The goalkeeper, despite being an Argentine, played in coffee grounds and his wife is from there, so he also took a plane to Bogota.
The three players were key players of the Copa Libertadores. Armani arrived earlier this year and stayed with the three clubs of the River, replacing German Lux. His performance was regular from the outset, to the point that he won a place in the 2018 World Cup in Russia.
Franco Armani, a bastion of the River under the three suits.
The Colombians were from minor to major. Although Borré lost the second final against Boca by double reprimand, he started for a large part of the Cup and crowned the Club World Cup with three goals despite third place. For his part, Quintero was a luxury substitute for Gallardo and appeared in key crossings of the Cup, against Independiente and against Boca, the latter for which he scored a great goal in the Madrid final.
