The implacable win over Racing was the previous party of the Millionaire who shouted champion again in a Monumental with full capacity and the coach was able to experience the celebration in the company of three of his children.

The 45-year-old coach starred in one of the most tender scenes of the day in the middle of the playing field when he met Matías, Santino and Benjamin, her three youngest children.
