René Higuita is one of the most important Colombian goalkeepers, who transcended borders in the 90's thanks to his particular style of tackling, going out to play many times outside the area. In addition, had a shortcut that he patented and that he even gave himself the pleasure of making at the mythical Wembley stadium: the scorpion . He threw himself forward in a kind of popcorn to reject the ball with his cleats. Many wanted to imitate it and could not, and others did not want to try directly. Franco Armani must be placed in that last group.

The River keeper maintains a great relationship with Higuita with whom he worked in his last stage at Atlético Nacional, where both are idols. And Higuita himself recalled that on one occasion, for a TV production "they wanted a note showing Franco the scorpion. But I spoke with Franco and we couldn't agree. It was impossible!" he said. between laughs the Colombian. Finally, he did it with another Argentine goalkeeper, Fernando Monetti, who also passed through Medellín.

But talking about Armani for Higuita is a source of pride and admiration. The images in Franco's farewell before arriving at River are a sample of the affection that unites them. <strong> "I am one more who loves him, who appreciates what he did in the institution. I met him as a person, with that humility before becoming what he was" </strong>Higuita explained in an interview with Fox Sports. During the talk, the coffee idol did not save any praise for the River keeper: "He is a tireless worker. <strong> I met him injured, he was in the gym and one told him to be calm, not to try so hard. </strong> Then he had the opportunity to start demonstrating all his conditions.
