Huerta, Pumas UNAM player, explained that what he experienced is thanks to all his work and recognizes that there are few opportunities so he has to take advantage of each one of them.
“A dream, it is something that anyone would like to experience, it is the result of so much work, so much dedicationNow it’s time to continue, because there are not so many opportunities. Look, since I was going to enter, all the moments that I had lived passed through my head, they are inexplicable sensations. You don’t win this twice, these are things that happen once,” Huerta explained.
