Born in Perú, Raúl Ruidíaz is undoubltly, MLS actual sensation. In only seven games played, he managed to score for five times what makes him a real trouble for rival defenses. The 30 year-old striker has an extense and prolific career. However, his last experience before putting Seattle Sounders' shirt was not easy.
"If you come single it does not influence so much, but if you have a family you have to think twice about coming to Mexico. You cannot be oblivious to what happens in your state, I experienced so many things and I saw so many other. This influenced a lot to choose the MLS", admited the Peruvian in an interview after leaving Monarcas de Morelias in 2017. His family still is his priority and in the USA they found an ideal place to live.
Now with peace in his life's context, Ruidíaz can enjoy soccer from another point of view. It seems that that weight he had upon his shoulders has disappeared and instantly eyes have been put on him. Sounders reached the second place in Western Conference in great part by their Peruvian goalscorer.
