Tigres is a world-class team.- Ismael Sosa

RIVIERA MAYA | Wednesday, June 29, 2016.- Tigres is a world-class team that is capable of fighting for the title in any tournament in which it participates, affirmed today Ismael Sosa, one of the felines’ new players for the 2016 Summer Tournament (Apertura), through a live chat held for the team’s YouTube channel.

The Argentine footballer spoke to all the followers, the Incomparable ones, who connected to the Internet, from the team’s preseason in the Riviera Maya, and praised the Tigres squad, manager and fans.

“Tigres has a world-class team that will fight to win in any tournament they want; wherever they play, the tournaments in which they compete, they will always fight. This is fundamental, they have a great team, an intelligent manager, I hope to contribute and learn, that’s what interests me most of all,” the forward explained.

Sosa also disclosed that in his native Argentina they nicknamed him ‘Chuco’ because that’s what they call people who are ‘chatterboxes’, who like to have fun and are always smiling.

“I’ve heard people say that I don’t smile and things like that, but it’s because I’m training all day long, I can’t smile all the time, but I’m gradually settling in with my new teammates. I’m a happy person and I try to have positive energy, try to contribute, always joyfully and being happy,” he said.

He also had words of praise for his current manager, Ricardo Ferretti, who he described as an intelligent, successful person and also thanked him for asking him to join Tigres.

“I’m not saying anything new, we all know what he (´Tuca’) has achieved, everything he has accomplished. Personally, I am thrilled that he asked for me and that means that I’m doing things right, and for him to ask me to form part of a great team like Tigres, with renowned players and a good team, then that makes me very happy and my obligation is to give my all in training, to endeavor to be in good shape to meet the expectations he has for me, and thank him somehow for bringing me to Tigres,” the Argentine stated.

Among other things, he wanted to clarify that he never refused to come to the felines. On the contrary, he’s delighted to form part of such a prestigious team like Tigres.

“During the Draft, a lot was said about my not wanting to come to Tigres. I never said that, I never talked to the press and I didn’t say that,” he commented, “actually I’ve found an excellent, orderly, disciplined group; I think ‘Tuca’ makes this group take their work seriously, always giving one hundred percent.”
