Pep Guardiola talks about Rafa Márquez

Five minutes.
That's  all he gave us.
Enough for somebody as intelligent and articulate as Pep Guardiola to describe Rafa Márquez, from the point of view of the Manager of the best team in the world.

“Rafa Márquez is an endangered species…”

These were the first words Pep used to describe Rafa, and then he went on to make an analysis of the main characteristics of the great player.

"He is not endowed with great physical attributes, he's not very fast, but he is very, very inteligent..."

"...and in a football as simple as carrying the ball from defense to mid field and from mid field unto attack, he is one of the best, I think, in world soccer, and certainly one of the best today."


The documentary is an ongoing process, and will cover his origins in Zamora,  his early years in Atlas, Monaco and his career with the might Barcelona, including the impact he is having on the MLS today.

One of the most beautiful women I ever knew.

We always think about a our mothers as the most beautiful women in the world.

But in my case, I must say, she was one of the most beautiful women I ever knew.

But above all, she was also intelligent, and so talented.

She was one of the pioneer women in advertising in Mexico. She started her career in Colgate Palmolive and then went on to be the Head of advertising for Richard Hudnut (La Campana) and a Vice President for Romero Lennen & Newel.

At one time she was the head of an advertising department, a TV presenter and a model for Christian Dior.

A legend in her own time, she helped pave the way for women in advertising today.

And no, she was not on Face Book.

A single mother and a most wonderful mother.

That was Maryté Cueto.

The most wonderful woman I have ever known. 

Rest in Peace
