When he was a kid, Gonzalez played volleyball in Muñiz club, but also practised futsal.

„It was an honor to share shirts, travels, rooms and tournaments. Thanks for your lessons!
Bruno Romanutti also wanted to express his feelings:
„What a shame! It was a joy to see you all these years with us, I’m proud that we have been teammates for a long time.“
The public will have to get used to not see the “16” on the court. The supporters will continue cheering, but they won’t find a ‘Gonzalez’ on the back of a t-shirt, at least not him.
