  1. Having those great players as coach is a chance for those teenagers! Who else can be a better coach than Aimar for an attacking midfielder? And Placente, what a player! He used to be one of my favorite fullback, same as Sorin and Zanetti. So bad that we don’t have that kind of fullback anymore.

  2. WOW what a great start to the new Era, As i said before now the rebuilding has started hope for a better future, Congrats to the Under 15 best of luck for a bright future.
