Theo has done it again. After crossing Argentina, you know the name of Teofilo Gutiérrez He can make headlines for two situations: for his great goals or for some scandal. The most remembered occurred the day the Colombian striker He took out a revolver in the Racing dressing room, after falling in the classic with Independiente, which decreed the end of his career in Avellaneda. The last one? The player organized the draw for Messi’s shirt to help a group of underprivileged children. The cost of the lottery was 20,000 Colombians, approximately 1,400 Argentine pesos.
“It’s a shirt that Messi gave me and now I have the opportunity for people to win it, to enter a lottery for 20,000 pesos (1,400 Argentine pesos), so they can provide poor children with a toy and it’s a shirt that It’s signed. There’s a friend who told me it’s worth 100,000 dollars, I didn’t want to sell it, and the idea is that people earn it and they can be happy, and give their children a gift,” said the forward .
