Yerson Candelo is experiencing his first months in Ecuadorian football. The Colombian full-back, who left Atlético Nacional in the last transfer market, has adapted strongly to Aucas and stood out despite his team finishing in the bottom places of the tournament. In an interview with Un break, the player expressed his desire to reach Millonarios and emphasized the importance of the Bogotá club.
“This is the second time there is an intention to approach Millonarios. It is a very important club, there is a great desire on my part to go there and I know that there are several people within the club who are interested in me joining the team,” he added. In Ecuadorian football, the full-back has provided 1 assist in 5 games played.
In the last transfer window, Alberto Gamero spoke about the possibility of the winger’s arrival to strengthen the blue team for the second semester. “He is a good player with experience who was a champion. If you have the opportunity, welcome,” commented the coach.
His farewell to Atlético Nacional
The versatile player wore the Antioquia team jersey for 6 years. Their last game was exactly against Millonarios in the BetPlay 2023 League l final. “I think there are possibilities, I talked about my departure in a different way,” commented Candelo after confirming his signing at Aucas.
In addition, he said that he has contacts with Millonarios and Medellín for his continuity in Colombian football. “Me and my businessman’s numbers weren’t right, so we decided to wait a bit and make another decision, which was to go to Aucas,” the player said.
