Rattín: “I always put claw on everything I did”

Before Maradona it was Rattín. Antonio was the one who challenged “injustice” in that mythical match of the World Cup in England in 1966.


Before Maradona was   Rattín   . Antonio was the one who challenged “injustice” in that mythical   World Cup in England in 1966   , when Argentina played a match with the English “we couldn't win,” he recalls. Perhaps the best number five that played in the Argentine national team, and surely the most remarkable who wore the shirt of   Mouth   , recalls its world championships and the famous clashes with monsters like   Franz Beckenbauer.  

Not only did football have   Rattin   as the protagonist of our sport and in politics, he also actively collaborated in the development of Argentine athletes both in his role as national deputy and councilor for   Vincent Lopez   . With a humble past, of bricklayer in dirt streets and wooden rafts in the Delta, Antonio assures that one of his greatest achievements is the Mutual de Boca, which assists and sustains more than thirty boquense glories of all ages.

Huge championships such as the 1964 Nations Cup, the most important AFA title after the two world cups, when they beat him and “danced the same   Brazil of Pelé in São Paulo   ”,   the Rat   Accommodating his huge ring with the 5 diamonds ensures that his greatest football thrill was that “debut at the age of 19 against River, and win!

I remember I shook to —   Angel- Labruna   And that monster says, “Pibe, quiet, this isn't the only game you're going to play in your career.” And he was right since I played 14 years in a row in Boca,” he finishes the “soul xeneize”.
