We cannot lose that empathy that had been achieved from the selection towards the people, in no way.. Football in recent years has been one of the few institutions that has brought the Peruvian people together and I don’t want that to be lost. I have touched on all of that with Juan. In the technical part it is only Juan who has to decide”, ended.
