New forward Isaac Romo said he would have more chances at Cruz Azul than at Queretaro, and he must take advantage of them.In terms of club standing, Isaac Romo went from a roadside motel to a five-star hotel when he left Queretaro for Cruz Azul.
The difference between the two teams was evident from the first time Romo trained with his new club.
"It's very different, the manner in which Queretaro play to what I have here in Cruz Azul," Romo told Mexican daily Record.
"(Meza) wants to have the ball a lot and logically more balls get played through me."
Romo will look to add some scoring punch to an already-potent Cruz Azul side. One of the club's few additions, Romo said he would see more chances than he did with los Gallos Blancos but that meant raising the level of his work significantly.
"As a player, as a forward, you always want to have a lot of chances," Romo said. "In Queretaro, I had maybe two or three every five games but here it's that many every game. So I have to work very hard to make those chances when they present themselves."
In a 3-0 friendly win over second-division side Orizaba, Romo scored his first goal in a Cruz Azul uniform. While it came in a meaningless game, Romo said it was a good thing nonetheless.
"It's always important to score even in friendlies," Romo said. "It helped me a lot and I have to keep working in order to improve my confidence and keep winning minutes."
