Francisco, the most football-loving pope in history, ‘signs’ to CD Tenerife

He is 85 years old and has a knee that puts him on a path of bitterness, to the extent that on his return from his recent trip to Canada he admitted to the press that he does not refuse to follow the example of his predecessor are no more waiting for La Parka to leave its current position. His name is Jorge Mario Bergoglio, although he chose the name Francisco in a fifth vote held during the second day of the conclave on March 13, 2013, he was elected as the 266th Pope of the Catholic Church and, therefore, the eighth from Vatican City. Sovereign.

Francis, of course, is not just any pope.
