The sudden death of the famous driver Xavier López “Chabelo”, has brought various anecdotes with the presenter, actor and comedian. But now Mexican soccer took center stage, because something that stands out about the deceased is that he was a great fan of the Águilas del América.
Chabelo was always a declared fan of the Coapa team, and in a chat with the CNN chain, he revealed the reasons why the Americanist team was doing.
“I came from León, Guanajuato, and I arrived in Mexico City when I was nine years old, I sold cigars at the Hipódromo de las Américas, one of many jobs, because I started working at the age of six. So my friends and my classmates took me to see a soccer match because they didn’t play in León. The first team I saw play was América, playing against a Spanish team and from there I became an American.”
While Chabelo himself, in another talk, but this time with Fox Sports, hinted that it was more than natural for him to go to América, because in the end the team belonged to Televisa, the company where he worked.
“I feel like it’s a natural love for the team. There will be entities that disagree that he is an Americanist, and what?
And it was fair, before the death of the famous Chabelo, that the owner of Televisa and Club América was one of the first to react to the death of his iconic collaborator. As expected, Coapa’s painting responded to Azcárraga Jean’s comment.
“A great one of the Spanish-speaking screens has left, RIP my dear Xavier, a hug with love to his family.”
