What does this transfer mean for your career?

This transfer is very important for my career. I have wanted this for a long time. To come to Europe, to play, and to do everything in the best way possible. It is a dream for me to play abroad.

Why did you choose Apollon?

I had several options, but I chose Apollon because I really liked the atmosphere, the stadium, and the people. After discussing with my representative, we felt that this was the best choice at this point.

What is your playing style and your main characteristics?

I am a defender, playing as a right-back and center-back. I focus a lot on physical fitness, running, overlapping, and tracking back. I believe I am strong in set pieces.

What are your personal goals at Apollon?

I want to give my best. I want to do what I did in my previous team and achieve as much as possible. I want to play many matches and provide whatever the team needs to help it achieve its goals.

What do you expect to bring to Apollon?

I had the opportunity to play in 130 matches over three or four years at Cartaginés. I want to offer everything to the team. I have gained experience from a young age, won two trophies in Costa Rica, and participated in all national team categories. I want to contribute as much as I can.

Is there anything else you would like to add?

I am very grateful to the team for giving me the opportunity to come here.
