Tozzo was speaking after the memorial held at the club's Arena Condá stadium and the event was attended by Alejandro Domínguez, president of COMNEBOL and it's thought that Dominguez verbally relayed these matters to Tozzo. The COMNEBOL executive committee are set to meet on December 21 and it's anticipated that the initiative will be ratified by members at the meeting.
