The arrival of Hugo Rodallega to América de Cali is not unreasonable, since the former striker from Bahía ended his contract and still has not found a team to continue his career as a professional soccer player, so the dream of the board of directors is to have him, but there is a dilemma and it is the high cost of the player.
For this reason, in the middle of an interview with the journalist ‘Gato’ Arce, Hugo Rodallega and the owner of América, Tulio Gómez, were luxurious guests to clarify their signing to the American team and after being investigated, both parties revealed their desire to sign the agreement, but the economic issue has been a stone in the shoe, although he left a tough challenge for the fans to bring him in regardless of whether the position is occupied.
“For 6 years we want to bring it. In 2022 the opportunity presented itself and the coach of the moment gave us a thumbs down, but hey. It’s never too late. Now, we have many strikers, but a player of the quality of Rodallega is never superfluous. We need to sell 30,000 tickets to bring it”Tulio Gómez acknowledged in the interview.
As for Hugo Rodallega, he was asked if he really wants to wear the América de Cali shirt and the player made it clear that priority has always been given to the scarlet team and he is still waiting for a formal offer from Tulio Gómez to sit down to talk
“I’m waiting. I have talked with other teams, but nothing has been resolved due to the same issue that I have given priority to America. It all depends on Tulio. He is the one who makes the decision.” recognized Hugo Rodallega.
At the moment, América de Cali began the preseason at its sports venue with the new reinforcements, seeking to prepare a good start to Liga BetPlay 2023, where they hope to be protagonists after the early elimination in the 2022 closing.
