Marcelo is the one who defines how the game has to be in the different inferiors, and he also delivers a folder for the minor divisions, "said Grossi in dialogue with River Monumental. He also explained what is the position and the ideological line of football that is downloaded from the club, respecting the historical essence of the institution.
