Ariel Ortega sets up his son for a goal in farewell match, duly bawls his eyes out
Diminutive playmaker Ariel Ortega played his farewell match at the Monumental Stadium on Saturday.
Ortega appeared for River Plate in a match against his team mates from the 2004 Newell’s Old Boys side.
The likes of Romario, Enzo Francescoli, Leonardo Astrada, Norberto Alonso and Javier Saviola all appeared but it was Ortega’s son that stole the show.
Tomasito Ortega finished with aplomb from close range and it was all too much to take for his father Ariel.
A touching moment!
