Alain Nkong made it. He's with Atlante now and figures to be a key part of the club's upcoming Apertura 2007 campaign. He really couldn't have asked for a better gig, as Atlante moved from Mexico City to Cancun in the offseason. So not only will he play in a strong league, he'll do so while living in the comforts of Cancun... though we're coming up on hurricane season.
Anyway, here's some of what the former Rapids man told the media upon making the cut.
"There is a God. I am very happy to go to Cancun with the team. I spoke with the coach to give him my thanks but now it's time to show it. The preseason is over and the season is starting.
I need to start thinking about Saturday's game because my desire is to score lots of goals. I'm not promising any amount of goals but you can rest assured that I will score. I am working hard with the coaching staff to adjust to center mid."
Atlante opens the season Saturday at Jaguares.
