“Alejandro Gomez was more of a striker in his first season with us. Then he experienced a transformation to play deeper, from where he became the captain, the leader for this team.​

Perhaps he got to this level a bit late, but he’s a top player."

"

In the last five years I'm starting to visualise my life after football. In football I have more control, I know what I can do. In business it's more difficult, you depend on other people, but I have a good team.

It has taken many years of hard work, dedication, and passion to achieve what I have in football. Outside of football I'm not there yet, but I'm a competitive guy and I don't like to be the number two or number three.

I always want to be number one. I will make it, 100 percent.”

"

I was born in Cali and lived there with my parents and sister. I wanted to become a famous football player as a kid so I could afford to buy a PlayStation.

Only after I grew older did I start to think about a nice car or home. At that moment my only dream was a PlayStation!"
