One of the most effective forwards that our team has had, is without a doubt the Chilean Iván Zamorano, who since coming to Mexico began to perform, to such a degree that he led our team to obtain the league title in 2002.
However, the history of the “Bam Bam” and America could have been prevented by one of the most famous teams on the American continent.
In an interview for TNT Sports, # 9 revealed that he had an approach with the Boca Juniors management in 2000, however he declined the offer, because he had already given his word to managers from America to come as soon as his contract with Inter Milan.
The closest Argentine team was Boca. They offered me a contract when I already had a word agreement with America in 2000. They offered me a spectacular contract, but the word is worth more, ”recalled the Andean.
Zamorano helped our team end the 10-year drought of not winning a championship, which is why it will never be forgotten by the biggest fans in all of Mexican soccer.
