Valderrama, Higuita and Leonel Alvarez, Colombians Real Valladolid
Pacho Maturana, I was a technician prestige in South America, serving his second season at the wheel of pucelano box so he had already won some leeway. With him had come Leonel Alvarez who turned in his first season in the team vallisoletano. This allowed the directors to accept the demands of the coach and pulled the house out the window to bring two international renowned Colombian, of the best at that time.
With these signings, Real Valladolid seemed that stepped forward to grow but it was quite the opposite. Colombian connection failed miserably Real Valladolid. The season was a failure, the team fell at the end of the season and his game was lamentable. The crowd looked for and found guilty. José Zorilla audiences clearly took with them.
The “Michel played eggs”, one of the most famous actions of the football 90
Such was the bad atmosphere that was created, Maturana decided not to align in home games and just do it out. For our three friends, the season was hell. At each stage where they played the audience jeered and took with them. With its lush manes afro and striking whiskers could not go unnoticed. The sad thing is that all you remember the passage of the Spanish League Valderrama is when Michel touched parts in a match played at the Santiago Bernabeu.
Rene Higuita who was a porter prestige at that time, you will not remember that stand out on the field but by the series of insults he received from the stands. Leonel Alvarez as coach Pacho Maturana lasted two seasons, so its passage through the Castilian-leonine club was somewhat less painful.
In the end, the descent of Real Valladolid, It led to the departure of Colombian clan headed elsewhere. After all meet in the Colombian national team to sign one of the most memorable days for Colombian football. They beat Argentina by zero goals to five Argentines home and went to the USA World Cup of 1994. But this friends, It is another story.
