If the wonderful pen of don Miguel de Cervantes Saavedra, novelist, playwright, poet and soldier, considered one of the greatest figures in Spanish literature in history, author of the world-renowned novel “El ingenioso hidalgo don Quixote de la Mancha”, would have settled in Tucumán in 1972. and following, perhaps we would have had two unforgettable heroes. One for cavalry and one for soccer. Because he would have personally and professionally known the conditions of a brilliant gentleman, defender of San Martín de Tucumán, who would have been included in his well-known expression “cosas veredes que non crederes”, due to his merit. He is Don Santos Ricardo Véliz, central defender of the Ciudadela club for four consecutive years. Born in soccer at Sportivo Guzmán, he had a brief stint at Independiente, in Buenos Aires, to return to his home club again. In 1972, he went to San Martín. Noble man, meaning nobility as a synonym for a hard-working life, always willing to surpass himself, to transcend what he already is, towards what is proposed as a duty and requirement. His high quality characteristic and his chivalry within the defense areas still live in the memory of those who saw, enjoyed and shared his game.
