After that Johnny Herrera criticized Azul Azul's leadership for club management and training areas, rumors began to emerge about the possible departure of the Universidad de Chile goalkeeper and captain at the end of the year, despite the fact that his contract expired in December 2019.
However, the executive director of the concessionaire, Pablo Silva, denied speculation and confirmed that guards will continue next season in lay players.
"Given the series of publications and comments that have appeared in the media, that the club will look for the departure of Johnny Herrera, I want to reject it for sure", the manager admitted.
"Herrera is a club player, has a current contract for one year, and never the club president and his council have sat down to analyze Johnny's final departure"he added.
Finally, Silva added: "With this, we want to refute this rumor, which has absolutely no footing and that diverts us from our main goal, this Sunday's match."
