They passed the training The game arrived today and Alexis came out. Then it was somewhat empty; then we came to Bolivia and I had to go to the bank”, Mac Allister began to count. “After a little while of talking to him He told me that, although he had said before that he wanted me to start training, he did not see me well, he thought I was not in the best shape, and finally he left me.
