The president of the AFA, historical ex-president of the Handsome, congratulated the Matador for climbing to the Professional League.
Claudio Tapia, president of the AFA, congratulated Tigre after the victory against Barracas Central in the final at the Florencio Sola, where the Matador won promotion to the Professional League.
“Congratulations to the people of Tigre for this brand new promotion to the Professional League”, Chiqui expressed on his Twitter account. And he added: “It is important that a large team return to the highest category of Argentine football. Greetings to the entire Matador family.”
