I am a creative midfielder. 29 years old, free agent if there a club interested. Talented. Crazy for Millonarios F.C., A team born in cold Bogotá, where Alfredo Di Stefano made part of his glorious history). Actually, I play for a club called ” John Coltrane F.C” at amateur level. I also support a young football star who wants to become the next Radamel Falcao. I have my own seat at the stadium ” Nemesio Camacho el Campin” every time my team needs me.

Football is my life. My brother is a goalkeeper ( he is in charge of the net for Coltrane), the fact of being able to play the beautiful game with him and my pals is the best gift I have ever recieved. Hope to retire at my 80’s with my crew.

What is your favourite Copa90 video and why?

FIFA & Chill. I love it because it’s the same I do everyday ( without the famous people). I also believe that I can have this kind of show here in Colombia.

What is the best football game you have seen and why?

Colombia Vs Uruguay at Maracaná stadium. It was a perfect revenge.

What is your favourite football snack?

“Lechona” typical Colombia dish (pork, rice with beans) you will find it, if you visit Nemesio Camacho el Campín Stadium in Bogotá.
