This Wednesday the Leon clubhouse was presented, which will have the name of La Esmeralda in relation to the team's nickname. At the event were directors of Mexican soccer, as well as state officials.
And although he was not present, a person stole “the show” with a phone call. Andrés Manuel López Obrador , president of Mexico, expressed his appreciation for this type of action, but took the floor from Enrique Bonilla , the top man of the MX League.
After several speeches, Bonilla stood in front of the audience for her turn at the microphone . The manager had begun his words, where he acknowledged not being prepared to speak.

“Usually I'm always the last to speak, today is not going to be the case. And I always have to say 'it's already hungry, let's go eat'. Today I don't have that one, but I am not very prepared ”, he commented.
Moments later, Jesús Martínez, president of Grupo Pachuca and president of the Tuzos del Pachuca, took the stage. “Sorry, Don Enrique. The President of the Republic is speaking to me to greet them, ”he said.
Martínez took Bonilla's place and put his phone on speakerphone, close to the microphone. “A greeting. Congratulations, Jesús Martínez , for promoting soccer in León, Pachuca and throughout the country, ”said López Obrador.
The Tabasco president, with his particular way of speaking, stressed that sport is a great alternative for the population . He recalled that, in these times of health emergency due to COVID-19 , exercise is a good way to prevent diseases.

“How good that football is being promoted. Sports are an alternative. People who exercise , who eat well, get sick less now that we are suffering from the pandemic, ”said the head of state.
So I congratulate you for promoting football and send a warm hug to all of you.
After the pause of the chief executive, Martínez thanked him for the support of the health authorities. This is because most of the competitions organized by the Mexican Football Federation (FMF) returned to activity.
“Thank you, Mr. President, and thank you very much , here is the president of the Federation, the President of the League, for all the support of the health sector so that all Mexicans can see us again,” he said.

The president of Grupo Pachuca also made a promise to López Obrador , which caused laughter from both. “It is our passion (soccer), although I know that you like baseball and it is your weak side. We are going to do something with baseball, ”said Martínez.
After the unexpected call, Enrique Bonilla continued with his speech. However, it was not the only curious fact that happened in the Guanajuato team event, because moments before Héctor López Santillana, mayor of León, caught the attention of Jesús Martínez.
“We better get used to talking with the mask, eh, my dear Jesus? You are a people who inspire many people, so it is very important that we lead by example, ”said López Santillana.
This, because the boss of the Tuzos took off his mask to give his speech . The funny thing is that to present López Obrador Martínez's call, he also took off his mask.
