Nuñez Focused On Helping Cruz Azul Triumph

Ramon Nuñez quickly established himself as a productive player in the Mexican Primera Division. Now, he has his sights set on helping his new club succeed.
When Ramon Nuñez arrived in Mexico with Puebla before the start of the Clausura 2009 season, he likely only wanted to earn a starting spot and some playing time.

Now, Nuñez has more on his mind than just playing.

“I believe that the success or failure in a club depends on the player’s mentality," baosted Nuñez upon arriving to Mexico City to seal his contract with Cruz Azul. "I came here to triumph.”

Nuñez left Puebla after a successful season with the club and turned his brief time into a new contract with a strong club. Nuñez said he wants to do more than just compete for a spot and help the team along.

“I come here to triumph and to give the best from me,” the Honduran midfielder told reporters. “I know the responsibility and expect that everything works out. I arrive very motivated to make the right decisions. I know that it is a very big commitment that I am taking on at this time and I am very prepared for that mentally and physically to perform to my maximum capabilities in the field."

The former FC Dallas and Chivas USA player said that while playing in the Mexican Primera Division was special, playing for a top club in the league is something to dream about.

“It is different to belong to one of the best clubs in Mexico; this is a team that is always looking to win a league championship but my responsibility is the same as it was in Puebla,” continued Nunez who is grateful for his former club. “I am content and grateful with the people in Puebla that had the confidence in me and thanks to them I have arrived at Cruz Azul. It has always been my dream to switch to this club and that is now a reality. I want the fans to know that I will do best in the field and in training and I wish to give many assists for goals."
