The prodigal son has returned. Juan Fernando Quintero confirmed that he will wear the River Plate shirt again for this season. This was announced during a press conference prior to Colombia’s friendly match against Honduras.
“We know about the current situation, I am now in the Colombian National Team. Soon we will close everything that is with River in the next few hours and I want everyone to know it, because it is the club that I want and I am going to give it my all”, explained to the media.
In the same way, he recognized that other teams wanted to have him, but he recognized that he always wanted to return to the Argentine cast. “I thank all the clubs that were interested in me for their interest, but my intention from the beginning was always to return to River and I hope to be able to close everything once my stay with the national team is over to go to the team’s presentation.”
