After many negotiations, and even a punishment imposed on the Tricolor soccer player who wanted to leave the club, the manager reiterated that the financial offer was not enough. “It was only enough if they wanted half the playerBarber said. “Jokes aside, we never give numbers. We are amused when we see them in the media because they have not come from us”, he added.
