Joao Joshimar Rojas is ‘another option’ for América de México in the Clausura 2022 tournament

Last March, the Emelec winger was the focus of interest for clubs from Brazil, Mexico, the United States and France.

Still in competition in the league of the Apertura-2021 tournament of Liga MX, Club América would already be probing possible reinforcements for the next Clausura-2022 tournament of Mexican soccer. As developed by the digital version of the magazine Total soccer, Emelec’s player, Joao Rojas, is one of the options handled by the ‘Aguilas’ board.

The 24-year-old left winger is a figure in the millionaire table and this year he won the call to the Ecuadorian team to play the South American qualifying for the Qatar 2022 World Cup.

The one born in El Guabo (El Oro province) accumulates 24 performances for the LigaPro Serie A championship and 7 for the South American Cup 2021 for a total of 31 matches. Rojas could close the season with 34 appearances if Emelec finally disputes round-trip finals for the title against Independiente del Valle next December and if coach Ismael Rescalvo decides to line him up this weekend in the last match of the second stage of the contest against Manta FC.

Regarding the supposed interest of the Mexican club, Total soccer published on November 18: “Joao Rojas, is another option for America in the Clausura 2022, it is a signing that would be ideal for Coapa if they can make it happen. The situation looks complicated because it is a sought after element in the market ”.

And the portal adds: “The name of Joao Rojas has begun to sound in the market as a good possibility for various destinations. The Eagles of America could quickly apply as one of the options to reach El Nido in the winter market and for the Clausura 2022 tournament ″.

Rojas was the focus of interest for clubs from Brazil, Mexico, the United States and France last March when the 2021 Ecuadorian championship was barely playing the third day of LigaPro.

One of those who focused their attention on the millionaire player was Cruz Azul, from Mexico, as revealed at that time by the intermediary José Chamorro.

Consulted at the beginning of March by EL UNIVERSO, Nassib Neme, president of Emelec, declared that Rojas’ case did not respond to “a concrete transfer, (but) for the moment an interest, which is very distant from a firm operation.”

The national press speculated with a tentative interest of the City Football Group to take to the extreme the establishment of the New York City FC, of ​​the MLS.

Pending the outcome of phase 2 of LigaPro, Emelec will hardly be a rival to Independiente del Valle in the title dispute next December. While in Mexico, América drew 0-0 with the National University Pumas, last Wednesday at the Olympic University Stadium in the first leg of their quarter-final series of the Apertura-2021 Mexican soccer tournament.
