Soccer News: Alejandro Guido waited patiently. He endured the mental and physical anguish that comes from a serious injury.
The Chula Vista, Calif. native suffered a season ending ACL tear and MCL sprain during the 2016 Clausura preseason. It was a moment the Club Tijuana Xoloitzcuintles midfielder wishes never happened but at the same time, helped spark a deep motivation to make a successful comeback at some point.
That moment has come. Guido is back on the pitch with his Club Tijuana teammates. He is ready to be part of the 2016 Apertura preseason as he will look to earn a spot in coach Miguel Herrera’s lineup. He took part in the first week of team activities before heading to Mazatlan for the beach phase of preseason training.
“We are in the final phase of my rehabilitation that allows me to be with the rest of the group,” Guido said. “This allows me to have more activity.”
Club Tijuana held its last activities at Estadio Caliente before traveling to Mazatlan where it will hold camp through June 19.
“We have a good opportunity personally and collectively to change the team’s path,” Guido said. “This preseason will help us establish a base for the team.”
Guido plans to be part of that base and help the team reach its goals. He also wants to reach his personal goal, to play at a high level.
“That is part of my plans,” Guido said. “We’re taking it step-by-step with confidence to try and be part of the first eleven.”
