The AFA, at the time, was forceful with its response and warned that the club that becomes a SAD will not be able to participate in its tournaments.

A few days ago, its president Andrés Fassi, who is also vice president of Pachuca de México and one of the four owners of Grupo Pachuca, had said that “Argentina is the only country in the world where SADs are not accepted. I believe that in football like Argentina, going through the moment we are in, being world champions, and with a great leadership moment, accepting foreign resources to enter to strengthen our clubs is a decision in favor of the AFA, it is not a decision against.”


Pablo Toviggino is the right hand man and faithful sidekick of the president of the AFA, Claudio “Chiqui” Tapia.


For his part, Verón has a similar idea, but is more cautious with his terminology: “I’m not talking about foreign capital, but capital that helps the club. It will make it possible for any fan who has a company and wants to connect with the club to do so with their cards on the table to clean up their finances or contribute,” said President “Pincha.”

Haha, you -for Verón- and the other who lives more in Mexico for Argentina -for Fassi- are the mules of an idea foreign to you!!! Don’t forget that you need THE VOTES OF THE AFA ASSEMBLY!! There is no longer DNU that forces us. When the project that AFA is preparing is known, both of them will be left with their asses in the air!!!”
