As the moment deserves and is taught by a sport as beautiful as football, the Olimpia club left the rivalry with the Cyclone for a moment and sent a heartfelt message to Francisco Arce, coach of Cerro Porteño, for the sensitive loss of his son Alexandro, barely 20 years old.

“On behalf of all the Olympian people, the Board of Directors, athletes and club staff we wish a lot of strength and Christian resignation to @ChiquiArceDT and his family in this difficult moment. We hug you teacher”, you can read in the publication on social networks of the striped team.

The ‘Chiqui’, a confessed close fan, was Olimpia’s coach in 2015 and even won the Clausura 2015 tournament after a spectacular victory in a very final against Cerro Porteño. The DT is very loved and respected by the striped fans.
