A goalkeeper, a central defender and a center forward were Alexander Medina’s specific requests to the Vélez leadership when he landed as coach of the first team. And one day after the arrival of the Uruguayan Diego Godín -who has already trained with the squad-, in Liniers they made sure Walter Bouin a silent but effective negotiation with Defense and Justice.
One week before the first leg with River for the eighth finals of the Libertadores, Vélez makes noise in the market. A noise that had already been generated with the arrival of the former central marker of Atlético de Madrid, with a very good relationship with Cacique Medina.
After the games of Cristian Tarragona and Juan Martin Lucero in the previous market and with the imminent exit of Sebastian Sosa Sanchez, who arrived and did not perform as expected, Vélez needed a company with a shoot for Lucas Pratto in the center of the attack. And boy does he get it.

Bou was one of the surnames that was mentioned as a possible reinforcement for Carlos Tevez in Rosario Central, but obviously this is not the case. And he will leave Defense and Justice just after the shock that Sebastián Beccacece generated by questioning his continuity – he will finally continue in office.
If everything speeds up and he can debut against River, for the Copa Libertadores, without a doubt he will do so with the incentive of having converted the Millionaire with the Boca, Union and Defense and Justice shirts.
