Club America fans ripped Sebastian Cordova to shreds on social networks
Those who are not at all happy with the departure of the America youth player are the club's fans, who have not been shy to reproach the player for his performance in the last tournament.
The main complaint to the player was that he "outgrew the number 10", the mythical jersey worn by the greatest players in the history of the Coapa club.
The problem is that Cordova scored those 16 goals in 99 appearances for the club.
Cordova had to wear the number 10 last season, a number that demands not only quality play and a convincing number of goals, but also leadership and, above all, the love of the fans.
Cordova had to withstand the demands of the America fans to reach the level of true monsters such as Luis García, Cuauhtémoc Blanco, or Salvador Cabañas.
In the 1998 tournament alone, Cuauhtémoc Blanco scored 16 goals, one more than Cordova. The problem for the now Tigres player is that "Cuau" scored those goals in just one season. .
In addition, Blanco is the second-best goal scorer in the history of the Águilas with 125 goals in his 400 official Liga MX matches.
Among the main complaints against Cordova, the fans called him a "cold chest", told him that he "outgrew the 10" and many more wished that the player "would never return" to the club.
