Herald He spoke a little about everything with his compatriot, who was kind and passionate about representing Honduras abroad. Here are his impressions.
– Let’s see, tell me. How does Leonardo prepare to be able to tackle the various issues generated by the sport, specifically in Honduras?
I prepare a lot before every program. I take some time out of the day to inform myself. I take notes and screenshots to remember some pictures so I arrive as prepared as possible. I follow Honduran football accounts on social media. This way, I can see the Betcris league and its most relevant teams.
– So far, what is the biggest challenge you have faced?
The biggest challenge for me was being able to manage the schedules between my work and Nola Sports. So that one does not affect the other too much.

– What does it mean to you to be the voice of so many crataches in the United States?
It is an honor for me and at the same time a great responsibility as a presenter of a sports program like El Medio Tiempo. And if it comes to representing Honduras, I will always do it in the best way possible.
– What do you think of the last matches played by Honduras?
My opinion of the last matches of the national team is simple: lack of courage, character and individual talent. But I’m still positive and feel like things are going to get better for the ‘H’.
Is Leonardo an Olympian or a Motague?
very funny. Well, I am a fan of FC Motagua. I fell in love with this team at a young age and have followed it ever since.
What are your plans for the future?
When the time is right, be an amazing father and husband. Things of work, status in society, change overnight. Let this part God guide me where I should go. This is exactly how I got here.
