His history as a footballer is shaped by an ankle tumor that he was diagnosed when he was just 15 years old and that forced him to stay away from football for three years. “I thought I would never play again,” he said in an interview on laSexta.
“My father told me I had to make a choice between amputation of the foot or removal of the entire bone and fix the shin with the ankle,” he added in another interview The worldin which he assured that the family would not accept either option.

In 2013 he triumphed in Bolivia but returned to Spain the following year as a result a serious accident of his son while playing in the pool. The little boy received 600 points and Gerardo and his then-wife decided it was best to give up success in Bolivia so their son could recover in Spain.

“Special mention to my family who have always helped me and supported me in every decision I made, my wife and son who have never hesitated to accompany me on my adventure through every city and country we live in, they always sacrificed themselves to make my dream come true. and to my parents, who always took me to every training session and even to the last game of my career when I was a kid They always proudly saw me from the stands,” wrote the former footballer, who posted a special message for his father.
“Dad, you were a key person in me playing football, we overcame my illness, you gave me the strength to push myself and if you doubt that we got it. THANKS”.
