last wednesday, flamingo defeated Deportes Tolima by the minimum difference for the first leg of the round of 16 of the Libertadores Cup 2022. The only goal for ‘Fla’ was scored by Andreas Pereira, who complained about the long trip they had to make to the city of Ibagué to play this match.
At a press conference, the soccer player was asked why Tolima was superior in the process despite the final result. The response of the former Manchester United became viral on social networks.
“They have to build an airport for us to travel directly here because the trip was incredible. Six hours of flight plus six of bus. We are very tired and we still won the match”, he began by saying. “So if we were a little bit more prepared, I’m sure we could have a better match,” he added.
