“The Boca fan is crazy,” Juan Román Riquelme often repeats, from the samples of affection that he receives at every step, either in the Bombonera or in the interior of the country. And if proof of that was needed, it happened this Wednesday in Mendoza …
A fan posed at the door of the Sheraton hotel, where the idol arrived after noon to join the xeneize delegation, with a sign that read: “Roman, my daughter’s name is Riquelma. We want a photo with you, teacher!”.
“What went through your head?” They asked him on TNT Sports, when they saw him with the cardboard and the baby in his arms with a little shirt that said “Riquelma Jianna” on the back and number 10. “Roman, an idol, an idol,” he replied.

This time, Roman traveled at noon yesterday with his son Agustín and President Jorge Amor AmealAs usual, he entered the Sheraton Hotel to a great ovation from the people who had come to greet him as the day before they had done with Battaglia and the footballers.
