I played with a lot of good guys on my side. I remember Pedernera. What a rest it was to play by his side. Di Stéfano played very little time with me and soon went abroad. In 1958, Real Madrid came to Buenos Aires to play with River, and it was then that I had the opportunity to see Di Stéfano again. Twice, in the shooting zone, when I was preparing to shoot on goal, the German appeared and took the ball from me. I couldn't contain myself and exclaimed: "Damn you German, what are you doing here? Your place is up front!" To which Di replied, "I just want to play a few moments with an old fellow."
