“I remember Angel walking up to me and saying, ‘an offer from Manchester United just came in. Maybe we will be a little more financially secure,’ Jorgelina told Los Angeles de la Manana.
“We fought about it. I told him, not an opportunity , he could continue on his own. ‘No, come on. Let us go’, he replied.
“There was a lot of money involved, and afterward, the Spanish were calling us money grabbers. And they were right.
“If you’re working for a big company and therefore the competition comes along and offers to pay you double, you’re taking it.” she said.
