translated from Spanish: Sara, the Boca fan who embraced Riquelme in Santiago, visited La Bombonera

In the visit of Boca to Santiago del Estero an image was given that generated a lot of tenderness and shows that football is more than a sport. Sara is the protagonist of a story that had Juan Román Riquelme as the protagonist and today the lady fulfilled one of her great dreams: “A dream fulfilled in old age”. Her hug and Roman’s help to get the lady over the fence went viral. “I saw him and I didn’t quite believe I was with him. He told me to take great care of myself and I to take care of himself too and that God was going to help him,” said the lady on a visit organized by the club to La Bombonera.
“I didn’t know anything about the neighborhood of La Boca, I didn’t know La Bombonera,” said the lady, a lifelong Santiago native. “Since I was 7 years old I have been from Boca and I have become a fan of Boca for the shield. My madri told me that it was a shield of a Painting in Buenos Aires and I am still a fan.” Boca is crazy. When he goes to play I’m already in front of the TV and nobody grabs my place,” he added about the passion for the team and then talked about the moment he lived in the vicinity of the hotel, where he gave the hug with Riquelme. ” I don’t know who ran away, I got in and didn’t move anything. There John’s arms appeared and he hugged him. I didn’t know if I was or not, nor did he feel when he picked me up, nor did I notice when I was in his arms. I couldn’t sleep and I thought, he is God to me. Never in my life did I think about what I reached at the age of 82,” he said.
