Alejandro Domínguez left a mark forever on the River fans . Although the idol category is exaggerated, there is an eternal gratitude to the former striker, who showed his enormous level in the first cycle and returned to help Núñez's team return to the First Division in the 2011/12 season. Retired from professional activity since he made his announcement on June 27, 2019, his current work is linked to the most popular sport on the planet .

Despite the fact that his wish was to have three more years on the courts, Chori anticipated the farewell after being free from Rayo Vallecano . "I really fell short, I thought I was going to reach 40 as a player. I had decided not to play for a team other than River if I came back and, sometimes keeping the word, it leads you to make certain decisions like retreat "confessed the man who emerged from the Lower Divisions of Quilmes.

What do you do now? "I am scouting Olympiakos" revealed Chori, in dialogue with 'How are you doing', by AM 1030 Del Plata. And in the midst of a pandemic, he added: "What complicated me the most was not being able to travel because my function is to move, watch games, find players and prepare a report of the ones I like" . Installed in Greece, he told details of his quarantine: "We were caught quite advanced on the issue of the coronavirus. We had to lock ourselves up right away and the boys obviously stopped going to school."

Satisfied with his job, the 38-year-old man dismissed the idea of ​​being a short-term technician. "At the moment, I don't see myself as a coach. I don't really want to be as big a responsibility as that. To be a coach, you have to spend hours and, if you're not willing to do that, it doesn't work" he argued. "As a player, I always noticed that the coach needs to be very strong from a psychological point of view to handle so many players. He will have to make a mistake some time, but if you are OK, I think better decisions are made," he justified.

In addition, Domínguez recalled with affection the institution of Núñez: "I always say that putting on the River shirt is not for everyone. Although it is the dream of many, it is not easy to take the responsibility that such a large club implies , with so much history ". What assessment did you make of the National B? "I feel that when we returned to River, with Fernando (Cavenaghi), we did things well. We were an exceptional group that pushed and put the chest so that the goal of returning to First could be met," he analyzed.
