on this wednesday to commemorateThe place that used to be his home for many years, leo ponzio He will have a worthy farewell to his audience. Although repeatedly he made it clear that his view was Stay Connected to the World of Football, he doesn’t hesitate to describe himself. “I have a business in agriculture, today I am an agricultural producer. This is who I am”, explained the former footballer infobae at the time of presentation.
His connection with the countryside, a place he lists as a “ground cable”, stemmed from his grandparents. Their ancestors owned farms, while their ancestors were laborers in an establishment. ,the field is my family, I put my passion in it for the enjoyment’s sake. When someone was away and had a few days to come, he lowers the intensity. I come from a country family all my life. He always went to the country, even on vacation. My grandfather used to work in a farm and I would go there for a week and I would also go to my other grandfather to spend the afternoon, to take a nap, to ride a horse.”, he recalled.
Thanks to the values that were instilled in him, Leo found a way out of the ball, and agriculture was the chosen destination. As he was going through the latter part of his career, he placed all his trust in his father, Daniel, to handle everything. But it was one thing to buy a hectare of land to rest and another thing to manage it and take the risk. ,My grandfather always told me that I had to get on the field and the truth was that I liked it, But you had to invest the entire property. In any case, he was always present. So I had a chance and didn’t hesitate,” he said.
leon He made his first big bet in 2006, when he acquired the first hectare. ,I played football to buy a field, So, I’ll save up some and ask my dad to start watching. It gave me more support and confidence while I invested for my future, as there are many investment possibilities in this sector, beyond what is happening in our country. Many of us may be out, but we’re here for a reason.”
At one point he chose livestock, as his grandfather said it was “a savings account”; However, after three or four years, he finally focused on agriculture. He planted maize, soybean, sorghum and will soon take his first steps with sunflower,
“I would like to have some feedlots. I have an eye and at some point the livestock bug will bite me again, but I want to do it here.” I am close to the city and I have the logistics to bring the trucks and take the animals out.”, warned Ponzio, who began to manage his farms more personally between 2017 and 2018, accompanied by his brother-in-law, who is an agricultural engineer.
,I have around 80 percent of what I have generated in my life in the field. Here we are, I don’t regret anything,” he confirmed infobae,
On the other hand, he underlined: “I refer to other countries. I think our society, all these issues we press, I don’t know if that’s the word, or we say we don’t like it but When we leave we feel the lack of neutrality of our country. I know how much I want to live and I know what I want. So, if I start protesting for one dollar or the other. .. you have to look inside, I don’t lack anything. This is reality, dealing with something else, which is day to day. You have to try to think differently every day. Not from people who command us We give, rather than one, schools, clubs. There are countries that are at war all their lives, and we don’t have that. Let’s look at other issues, which are complicated. We leave our country and come back. Address Why not. Upvoting is great. The word is complaining, but why I complain is different. I complain because I work or because I don’t work and I want them to give it to me And everything is perverted there. Value of work, value of education. Everything starts from there. If a country doesn’t go that way, everyone throws water for their mill. Each takes care of his fifth and becomes a divided country. I can’t give the same opinion as you and I can’t sit at the same table. Those are background things. First we have to open up, let’s think about the second and then try to do something. It’s difficult”.
Similarly, it is very difficult to close the door of football. The former central midfielder’s intention is to continue to engage with the ball, preferably at river plate. “I am with my people, I have my own business. But the reality is that someone has played this game for a lifetime and quitting it is like I don’t want to and it’s not easy for me. I want to be involved,” he said.
“The reality is that I would love to. I lived a long time and I feel like I know the river world, but today all the pieces are in order. no one left, so you have to wait, And if it’s not the time I’ll start somewhere else, because I feel like it. Next year I will try to find the place. I will look for a place where they give me day to day, because day to day is a lot. This is where one sees, pays attention, imitates the good and the bad. That’s why I say next year I would like to, but from the bottom, start to rise”, he pointed out. Although later, he clarified: “As a coach, no. Not now. I like the technical secretariat, the issue of recruitment, Not a coach because I don’t have the course and I’m still in a position where day to day coaching takes you 24/7.
