The Palace Fan 3,234 Posted March 7, 2018 Share Posted March 7, 2018 Asked during a radio interview who administered the national team’s WhatsApp group, Peru international Luis Advincula answered: “Who else but the ‘Future Captain’… Renato Tapia.”. Speaking with FIFA.com, Tapia laughed, as he explained how his team-mate had come up with the moniker after Peru coach Ricardo Gareca stated publicly that “Renato has leadership qualities. He’s a lad who speaks up and even the older players listen to him.” That said, the 22-year-old central midfielder was keen to point out that “the captain’s armband deservedly belongs to Paolo Guerrero, and we respect that. If one day I’m asked to fill that role, then hopefully I’ll do it well. But this team has more than one leader, which is a good thing given what lies ahead.” Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
