After losing the 2004 Copa Libertadores final to Once Caldas, Carlos Bianchi did not stay for the runner-up award and left a phrase that generated controversy: "I did not know that the second was given medals … As is the first time we lose. "
However, the former Once Caldas coach, Luis Fernando Montoya revealed that the Viceroy regretted having done that and went to apologize to Medellín.
" Bianchi had a close person playing in Medellín and was visiting him . Then he came and visited me at my house and said: 'Professor, I came to apologize for not receiving the runner-up medal, but that day I had family problems too, "" said the former coach, in dialogue with SOY Deportes.
Without going any further, Montoya recounted his response to the Viceroy's apologies: "I told him: 'Don't worry because that second is not easy for anyone, but for you who have been winning everything.' It is not easy to lose for a technician, I understand ".
However, there was one more situation in that meeting: " That day Carlos Bianchi came to my house we took a photo of ourselves, but you know what? I don't have it. I would like to get that photo to have it with me from I remember. Bianchi is quite a man. You have to applaud him, "he closed.
