    El Rata and El Muro are two Boca legends that ran themselves into the ground for the crest. Never seeking the fame. Just loved playing football.
    I recall some former Argentine trainer circa 2002 best described Samuel "El es tipo una maquina, piense en futbol, ni mujeres, ni riquezas. Solo el futbol." Something like that from years back as I best recall.
