The 24-year-old was relieved when he opened his account early in his second season at the club
Alvaro Fidalgo admits “it took too long” before finding his first League MX goal at Club America, but is relieved that he finally opened his account last weekend with the winner in a 2-1 result against Necaxa .
It was his 12th home appearance with the team, and while assisting twice in 2020-21, he was eager to throw one of his own shots into the net.
While the Spaniard is aiming for a CONCACAF Champions League title – America will play Philadelphia Union in the semi-final next Thursday – he hopes to retain his goal contributions.
What was said?
“It took too long [to score], “he told TUDN. ” Another player left the field and they asked me ‘why are you not? [more] happy? ‘
‘Sometimes the forwards know it very well, it seems like one never comes in and suddenly one comes in and maybe two come in, you never know, it’s so, it’s football, and the most important thing, beyond that, is to help the team, give the best possible version of myself and then the goals, if it comes, well.
‘I feel good, but as I always said, I have felt good since I got there, I was very happy from the first weeks, wanted to be here, always trying to do things well and so on.
‘I dream of winning the CONCACAF Champions League. That would be amazing [to play a Club World Cup]. “
The 24-year-old moved from Castellon mid-last season and appears to be based in League MX now.
America are unbeaten through their first two Apertura games, by four points, and play Puebla on Saturday before their crucial Champions League game.
