"Do you remember Atlante against Cruz Azul in which‘ Tito ’Villa scores a goal with his hand? In that game I was undone, in the end I found out that he went with his hand and called Mr. Aaron to tell him that I was leaving the arbitration because I didn't want to give them any more problems ”, he recalled in an interview with ESPN.

Guerrero was convinced, but Padilla caught his attention for his decision. "He said to me:‘ You are wrong, you are wrong, I will not let you go.
