One of the news that River fans most celebrated after the victory against Newell’s was undoubtedly the return of Leonardo Ponzio, who was away for more than four months due to myocarditis that kept him on the brink of retirement, however, He didn’t give up and his comeback last weekend came off brilliantly.
This will be the last year that Millionaire fans can enjoy this player as it is known that he will put an end to his tremendous career as a professional player, so this return has him very happy, as he demonstrated on his social networks:
Until a few months ago the future of Leo Ponzio as a River player was uncertain because the issue of his renewal was nowhere to be seen and everyone thought that his cycle had ended, however, that renewal came and now he has a contract that favors him since his renewal is for 1 year with the option to terminate the contract in 6 months if he decides to retire.
Ponzio’s leadership is very important in the club, becoming a motivation for his teammates, because despite the fact that he does not have enough minutes, in each game that he has been on the bench he does not stop giving directions, shouting and encouraging as he does. a technician would do.
The fans are already anxious that they can return to the stands of the Monumental and fire this player as he deserves.
Leo Ponzio is an idol and a benchmark for the club, as well as having the record for the most matches played in the Marcelo Gallardo era (First player to reach 200 games).
