“Hugo Sánchez is the worst person I had as a teammate in all the teams I played for”thus described Ruben Canochampion of the Spanish League with Atlético de Madrid in 1977, to ‘Hugol’.
The Spanish-Argentine forward, later added.
Treacherous and disloyal as I have not met any other. He didn’t leave a friend at Atlético or at Madrid… nor should he have a friend in Mexico and I say this because the first year we almost lived together and helped a lot.
The Spanish team in the Argentina World Cup 1978he claimed.
He is the most self-centered person I have ever met.
Meanwhile, Cano spoke about Sánchez’s dream that never came.
His dream was to coach Real Madrid…for a reason it never was.
In addition, Cano recalled that the wife of ‘Hugol’ celebrated the goals that Atlético received when the Mexican was on the bench.
Such a bad person that when we went to play outside the wives would get together to play cards or bingo… and if he came on as a substitute, the woman would celebrate the opponent’s goals… and show that she wanted Atlético to lose… that made we distanced ourselves
At the moment, Hugo has not responded to Cano’s words.
