Argentine Dinenno will continue in Pumas until 2024

MEXICO CITY ( Associated Press) — Juan Ignacio Dinenno has signed a two-year contract extension with Pumas, the Mexican first division club said Tuesday.

The 27-year-old Argentine striker arrived at Pumas in 2020 with a two-year deal that expired in December.

But far from looking to go free on that date, he decided to stay in Ciudad Universitaria where he has become one of the team’s benchmarks.

“There is a feeling of happiness. I am very happy to be able to continue in this institution and that the trust is reciprocal knowing that I will continue to compete and carry these colors and values ​​for quite some time”, said Dinenno in statements to the club.

The “Comandante”, who made his debut with Racing de Avellaneda in his country, arrived on Mexican soil from Deportivo Cali in Colombia. Since then he has scored 40 goals in all official competitions.

“I really enjoy the club. I suffered, I competed, I have cried and laughed for this shirt, for how far we have come”, said the striker. “The illusion is the same as the first day, the hope of being part of the history of this beautiful club.”

The signing of Dinenno was a priority for the university leaders, despite the fact that in the past they have let other important players go to give opportunities to players from the academy, following the club’s philosophy.

But letting Dinenno go would have been a serious blow to aspirations to break a title drought dating back to the 2011 Clausura tournament, the longest among the country’s most popular teams.

Pumas have come close, contesting the 2020 Apertura finals, the 2021 Apertura semifinals and the CONCACAF Champions League final this year, which they lost to the Seattle Sounders.

“The greatest illusion is to be champion. We know that we are a team that when we are at the best of our conditions, we can compete with anyone”, added the striker.

The Apertura tournament kicks off the first weekend of July.
