After an excellent career defending the goal of the Hercules, and being on multiple occasions the protagonist of rescuing points and matches thanks to his magnificent interventions, it would not have been fair that, due to a mistake in the meantime and so much success, he charged the result in his due, losing the match against Badalona, which it would have put in a vertigo situation the pretended classification for the new category of 40 teams.
