Felipe Reyes has only played 81 minutes in 14 games this season, which will probably be the last of his career. However, his importance in Madrid goes beyond the games. For young people he has become a teacher, as shown in the video in which the captain, who turned 41 on Tuesday, lectures Tristan Vukcevic, from whom 23 years separate him.
The canterano thanked his tutor’s work on social networks. “Not only today Felipe Reyes has taught me in the low post, he has been teaching me every day for seven months on and off the field. An honor to be able to learn from you. Happy birthday,” he wrote on his Twitter account.
And Felipe replied praising his work and dedication: “It is a pleasure working with kids who want to learn and who go to train every day to give their all and you, Tristan, are a clear example of all this. If you keep working just as well. hard and with the same humility as now, you will go as far as you propose. Thank you very much Tristan! “.
