Alfredo Morelos makes debut in Santos defeat

After his introduction on September 4th, the 27-year-old Colombian attacker played his first minutes in the jersey of the traditional Brazilian club Santos. The debut didn’t go as expected, he came on 13 minutes before the end of regular time, he didn’t have much participation and his team lost 3-0 at home.

Santos is not going through a good phase, with 21 points out of 69 possible, it is in 17th place in the Brasileirao, which means that it is partly among the four teams that lose this category. In order to improve these numbers, coach Diego Aguirre relied, among other things, on the participation of the former Scottish Rangers striker.

Participation by Alfredo Morelos

This game at their stadium was a reflection of Santos’ campaign. They were completely outclassed by their rival. In search of an improvement in the playing conditions, the Uruguayan coach sent Morelos to replace Marcos Leonardo in the 77th minute. This season, the Cereté player had the opportunity to make three long passes, two of which were successful. He did get a shot once, but the shot went wide of the goal. He couldn’t do much to help his team in such a short amount of time.

In his presentation to the club, Morelos demonstrated a desire to contribute and develop personally and professionally. “Santos is very tall and cannot fall. My teammates and I know we have to win. There are 16 games that we have to play until death. You have to feel this shirt. It has a lot of weight and that is worth a lot. I am very happy to be in Santos. This institution is very large. “I have a lot of expectations and a great desire to do everything very well,” said the striker.

The next opportunity to showcase his talent will come next time when Santos visits Bahía, a team currently two places higher up and also fearful of relegation, so it will be a crucial duel at this point. This game will take place on Monday, September 18th.
