Corona has entered the club’s history books by becoming one of the four goalkeepers to be champions with Cruz Azul (playing as a starter), a situation that was very relevant for his renewal to arrive, it is also known that the goalkeeper lowered his salary so that an agreement could be reached.
In addition, the Mexican spoke of what it represents for having achieved this desired championship: “I’m enjoying it a lot and also because of the fans that we were able to repay them with a title that they had well deserved, and it gave me great satisfaction that they were able to enjoy it that way. There were complicated moments in which I was also desperate not to get this title but now I am convinced that we can be a vintage team “, he concluded.
The experience of the Mexican will be very important because with this level shown, it would be difficult for him to stop being a starter and surely he will once again be one of the figures in the tournament that is very close to starting.
