The Mexican football final between Toluca and Santos, and the recovery of Sergio Agüero are some of the most read news of the day.
On Thursday night, the first leg of the final of Mexican football took place in Torreón, where Santos won over Toluca to take advantage for the second leg. Djaniny and Julio Furch were the scorers of the green and white team that will look to lift their sixth league title when they visit the Nemesio Diez Stadium next sunday.
One of the men who will be key for Argentina in the next World Cup is Sergio Agüero. 'The Kun' faces a knee injury that he seeks to heal completely to be ready for Russia 2018, where he will try to lift the coveted trophy along with Lionel Messi. About the Barcelona’s forward, Agüero mentioned that he has stopped thinking about the possibility of playing with him in a club, since he believes that both will retire in their current teams.
Last week, Carlos Tévez was involved in a controversial episode during the Copa Libertadores match between Boca Juniors and Junior. The Argentine striker decided not to greet Teófilo Gutiérrez, player of the Colombian team, and yesterday he made official the reason of the gesture. 'El Apache' still has not forgotten the celebration of Gutierrez where he mocked Boca because of his past in River Plate, so he decided not to shake hands with him.
Jefferson Lerma, midfielder called to the Colombian national team for the World Cup, spoke exclusively with AS about his time in Spanish football, and the good moment he lives at his 23 years. There, he confessed that after the match of his team with Real Madrid, the president of the club, Florentino Perez, opened the door to join 'the merengues' if he maintains the level he has shown in Levante.
The AS collaborator, Tomás Roncero, showed some enthusiasm about a gesture coming from Lionel Messi. In a video revealed through 'El Chiringuito', Roncero discovered that the Barcelona striker keeps the shirt of Kostas Manolas in his collection, the Roma player who beat the Catalans in this edition of the UEFA Champions League.
