    Just look at the picture.

    Who in their right mind would trust this man: he looks like a wrong-'un.

    And it took from the 1990's to get him to go.

    He will be missed . Thanks to him the Conmebol HQ is now based here in Paraguay . A very impressive building close to the airport . He also convinced the Bourbon hotel chain to build a first class hotel close to the Conmebol building . Also a convention centre which is the best here . Well done , our friend , you did a lot for your country .
    It is also complete nonsense that he kept the Japanese Imperial couple waiting . The Paraguayans may not be punctual but , with foreigners , they are almost Brtish !
