First goal for Las Palmas against Atltico, Kirian. Second goal, Benito. The Canaries beat Atleti with two goals from the Canaries and the youth squad. Two goals from two friends who had to suffer together until they tasted glory. Kirian always had Benito close. It was his shoulder inside the locker room to overcome a tough illness. The gesture of him shaving his head touched the heart of his friend who, more than a friend, is a brother. Benito was present the day that the Tenerife hit with subtle hardness, with a toy hammer, the ‘liberty bell’ the day of his medical discharge.
Benito has not had an easy path either.. Last season, after getting injured, he left his number to Loren. He underwent surgery for lumbar spine surgery. He did not participate in the final stretch of promotion, but he has had his reward in the First Division. A path in which he always had his ‘brother’ Kirian nearby.
Las Palmas won, 36 years and 9 months later, at Atlético de Madrid at home and Kirian and Benito were protagonists. One day they dreamed and it came true: “In the room we were talking about it: How nice it would be to have a game in which we both score!“Kirian admitted after the match. Football, life.
