 Do not cry Mr. Football,
Wipe the window of your soul,

And if you need something more,
I'd cry for you.

 Gracias El Flaco, To Valerón: You are a true role model as a professional footballer and as a person. Modest, hard-working and professor of footballogy. Your brilliant touch and football intelligence cannot be found in the world of football anymore, combined with fair play, positive attitude toward team mates, coaches, opposition players, referees and especially fans you represent what football is (should be) about. Your devotion to Deportivo and the years of joy you, together with your team mates brought to us, the fans, is priceless. You are and will always be an icon of Deportivo La Coruña. All I can say is thank you. Iztok, Slovenia
