Early 2019 Colo Colo announced the signing of Juan Carlos Gaete, who passed the medical exams and trained for a week with the campus. However, and unexpectedly, the forward decided to leave and returned to Deportes Santa Cruz, a club he had defended between 2015 and 2017.
This Wednesday, the forward broke the silence and told the real reason for his frustrated signing in Los Albos. “I did not agree with the money, my representative told me that he was going to ensure my future. I even signed and told (Cristián) Ogalde that this money was not going to ensure my future.”, He began by declaring on an Instagram Live with Patricio Vergara.
“I decided not to stay because I did not agree with the money, he (Ogalde) sold me another story, I fight with him and I tell him that I was not going to introduce myself, that I was not going to please him”added.
Gaete also expressed his fanaticism for the “Cacique” and dreams of returning to the Monumental. “I’m a Colo Colo fan and I almost got a tattoo of the shield on my chest. I spent a week in Colo Colo and it was the best of my life. The stadium is beautiful and the players a seven. I want to come back next year, that’s it my goal”, he claimed.
