América de Cali’s win against Unión Magdalena made Teófilo Gutiérrez dizzy
Teófilo Gutiérrez is still without a team in Colombian soccer, in a League that will play its third date this weekend.
The former captain of Deportivo Cali had everything ready to play for Unión Magdalena, perhaps the only team that was seriously interested in him, and when they talked about his official presentation very soon with the banana players, everything went to the floor and the doors of the Santa Marta team were definitively closed to him.
Teófilo, according to what was told to El Heraldo by the maximum shareholder of Unión Magdalena, Eduardo Dávila, the Barranquilla midfielder changed the conditions after seeing the defeat suffered by the eleventh Samario against América (4-0).
“Teofilo had apparently accepted, but after the loss on Tuesday (4-0 against América) he called to ask for another contract. There is no longer any possibility. He requested a contract that is not handled in our institution, ”said the owner of Unión Magdalena.
El País consulted with two people close to the player, who asked for their names to be omitted, and both agreed that “Teófilo did not look favorably on the Union because there was no payroll to fight important things. He understood that he was going to lose there , beyond the fact that Santa Marta is close to his house in Barranquilla”.
In this way one more chapter ends, although in football everything can happen and it is not completely ruled out that given the impossibility of getting a team, Teófilo reverses his situation with Unión Magdalena.
