Marcelo Gallardo is one of the greatest idols in the history of River and became a legend in these years as a coach. The fans’ love for him will be eternal and now they will present his statue to honor him.
Although the first intention was for it to be ready on December 9, 2019, there were delays in carrying it out and the pandemic led to it having to be postponed. The truth is that the wait was worth it and now the fans will be able to know it on next October 8.
“The fans are eager to be able to pay this tribute to Marcelo, to give him this gift that he deserves for all the joys he gave us and so you know that just as the Cup that Boca won in Madrid is eternal, we want him to be River’s eternal coach, to stay at home forever “declared Carlos Trillo, one of those who had the idea, in dialogue with Olé.
The statue lacks only the face of Gallardo and there are many expectations to meet her. It will be bronze. it will measure more than seven meters and will weigh around 6.5 tons. A tribute more than deserved for the Doll!
