“Speaking of the 2005 category, there are players who could be better in the future than the ones we have in the first team at the moment. From what I’ve seen and I know, I think they have a long career and they have to give Chivas. We have different players and we press them,” he said. ESPN Digital.
In addition, he affirmed that the rojiblanco team has not lost its DNA in the formation of the elements and that they are working to give success to the institution.

“It motivates me a lot, having done a good Sub16 made me want to move forward and transcend myself. It went well for me and the time at Expansión was very nice and I want to continue, I don’t want it to be just Expansion, we all want to be in the first team and it’s a stage there, but I’m looking for the first team. It’s not bad to be at Expansión, but what better than to be where everyone wants,” he said.

What is happening with the Santos players motivates them, now Marcelo Flores playing as a starter with Daniel Aceves and the Mexican is ready to go I have spoken with my parents and at the first important opportunity that arises I want to go to Europe, as long as it is to progress I want it’s possible,” said the youngster, who is the son of Ariel Castro, a former Jaguares player in the early 2000s, while his grandfather Jesús Castro was with the Tigers in the 1970s.
