Emotional Warnock said: “He was my player, he signed for me. I think he was going to be very instrumental in what we were looking to do.I feel that it’s the only good thing you can do. I think family, they put it in perspective. I think family is so important.

“I think everything here today has shown how important it is. Mercedes, the mother, and Romina (Emiliano’s sister) and the Dad (Horacio), they have all been so emotionally involved with the whole village, not just the family.”
