Before finishing, Sarrà summoned the governor of the Metropolitan Region, Claudio Orregopointing: “Him saying that we are going to compete very well only shows his lack of knowledge. They may want to say on paper that the conditions will be met, but today no place in Chile is suitable for a tournament. international and, hopefully, national..
