Chivas de Guadalajara are their greatest rival, but it seems that not even the Rebaño Sagrado players can hide their love for the Copa team. Now a former rojiblancos player explained why he was a fan of América.

Sports rivalry is one of the best things that Mexican soccer has and the Clásico de México will always leave a lot to talk about.
