The club is up to date with salaries and does not owe taxes, we are very good and tidy, but money always increases. "
Zencich also has a certain story that connects him with the river and "Muñeco", whose family is Merlo's native.

I am an admirer of both, but I tattoo Merlot's shield. We are expecting, but we know that we are facing the champion of America, "he warned.
