Históricos del balompié 1969
Mercero was mad about football. Thanks to Históricos del balompié he was able to take a closer look at his favourite footballers.
Although he was a Real Sociedad supporter, he admitted that he had been an Athletic fan as a child, influenced by his uncles. He interviewed players for both teams: Eduardo Chillida, at that time goalkeeper with la Real –who went on to become a famous sculptor– and Telmo Zara, a forward with Athletic. While recording, he asked the latter if he could touch his head, saying that it would bring him luck to touch the ‘person responsible’ for scoring so many goals.
