versions crossed by the noisy exits of Mancuello and Poblete

Vélez does not end the year in the best way. Despite having rounded up a good 2021 from the sporting point of view, both Gerónimo Poblete and Federico Mancuello decided not to renew their ties and Fortín lost two important pieces, with the obligation to rearm for 2022 with triple competence.

In the middle of last year the left-hander returned -in free condition- to the country to sign his contract with the blue V for a year and a half. It included two purchase options for 50% of the pass which, logically, belonged to the player. The first, due in June 2021, for 1.8 million dollars. And the second, to December of the same year, for 2 million of the same currency.

Until then, no controversy. In fact, Mancu’s performance went from lowest to highest and ended up being one of the highest points of Mauricio Pellegrino’s team, with whom he played 60 games, scored 6 goals and distributed 9 assists.
