As the days pass from the lSebastián Córdova’s legacy to the Tigres from the Autonomous University of Nuevo León (UANL) the midfielder has shown the context in which he left the Eagles. After the rumors that pointed to a series of frictions with the technical director Santiago Solari, broke the silence and confirmed the versions. Although it was not explicit, this could have been one of the reasons for its final sale.
“We had a misunderstanding, as the agent says, but everyone is their taste. He is the coach and I am the player. If he wants to put someone else, go ahead. I work. My profession is to be a player and he is the technical director. Now if each his own ”, revealed during an interview with the Canal 6.
And it is that the arrival of Santiago Solari to Coapa implied the renovation in each one of the sectors of the field. With a sports philosophy notably different from that of Miguel Herrera, he began to implement a series of changes that contrasted with what was exhibited by the Eagles in Guard1anes 2020. One of these movements was the loan that Club América arranged for Real Madrid de Castilla for Alvaro Fidalgo.
On February 1, 2021, a month after the Argentine took the reins, the signing was announced. Although he was an unknown character for the fans, with the passage of the parties it began to adopt a leading role. Meanwhile, Córdova began to lose participation, although still showed flashes of talent which led him to be considered for the Concacaf Pre-Olympic tournament.
“Everyone has their own way of leading. With Solari that was (consider him a shock instead of a starting player) and then you have to adapt. I don’t think I adapted to that, or to his system “he continued.
Before the situation between Córdova and Club América showed signs of hostility, the Aguascalientes native it was consolidated as one of the jewels that would give glory to the club. Miguel Herrera even declared that his performance was better than Diego Lainez, but “he had a very strong injury and spent a year off the courts and with the danger of having stopped playing.”
With the antecedent, the board decided to grant him a great responsibility that few players have known how to direct. He received jersey number 10 and was immediately the recipient of great expectations. With the new number, Córdova continued to show flashes of quality. However, his inconsistency gave the spotlight to the Spanish midfielder and minutes on the bench increased.
“With 10, an important game I think were those of Pumas. I went in (to play) three or four minutes into the first leg and I couldn’t do a big deal. Against Monterrey, in the Concacaf, also entering the exchange. Either way. Maybe he had a plan for the games and it was for me to go in on a change “, he stressed.
When the media released the news about the possible exchange between Chivas and América for Uriel Antuna and Sebastián CórdovaMiguel Herrera regretted the decision of the Coapa board of directors. He even showed his interest in taking the youth to San Nicolás de los Garza. Weeks later, his request was fulfilled and gave him a second chance to the former Americanist’s career, although the fight for a starting position will be anything but simple.
