Blue Cross wants to increase the presence of homegrown players in the first team and after the sale of Santiago Gimenez to the Feyenoord, Rodrigo Huesca raise your hand to become a reference in the house.
Exclusively for RECORD, the 19-year-old acknowledged that little is said about the basic cement forces, but he assured that things will change very soon.
“It is always mentioned that Blue Cross It doesn’t have a quarry, there is always talk of Pachuca, Chivas, Pumas, but little is said about Cruz Azul and this will give something to talk about, let them see that we are a good quarry, that there is projection here and that Cruz Azul is a good club for take out young Mexicans,” he told RECORD.
In addition to Huesca, Raphael Guerrero is another of the youths that the ‘Colt’ Gutierrez promoted and so far, the defender has earned the title, a situation that in the words of Huescas has generated a tremendous illusion in the Under 20 and Under 18 players who dream of reaching the First Division.
“We are very excited and more than those of us who are from the Basic Forces, those who are in Sub 18 and Sub 20 are seeing that the teacher opens the possibility for you. When you see a coach who does not put the kids in it is difficult to assimilate it, but now that El Potro is not giving a chance to play I have spoken with several teammates and they tell me that they are happy that they give me the opportunity because for them it is also a motivation ”, he concluded.
