I am very grateful to everyone here and I am very happy to have been part of such a beautiful city and such a wonderful club.”expressed the goalkeeper in the statement published in recent days by San Antonio FC, the North American team in which he had been a member.

“It’s a very thoughtful decision, I had been thinking about it for several months. I have to take charge of my businesses here in Miami, which are real estate, and I no longer felt the same passion that I once felt, that desire to dream of soccer and I have to be honest with myself and the profession that I love so much. it gave. One day I woke up and felt that it was enough, I must play my second time in life. They can say that I am very young or very old, but I am calm”, commented Bonilla this weekend in dialogue with ‘Caracol radio’.

(Also: They kill a young promise of Colombian soccer for stealing his cell phone).

“I was happy in San Antonio, I had played the first three games. I didn’t lose the motivation to train, but I did need to be in charge of the company and I couldn’t be in both things. You have to make these kinds of decisions, I no longer dreamed like I did when I was 18“, concluded the now former goalkeeper.
