The Venezuelan international winger Samuel Sosa is living a sweet moment in Alcorcón, with which he has returned to start with a leading role in recent games in the return to competition of the Spanish League.

Sosa, 20, is completing his first European adventure in Alcorcón, a club where he is loaned by the Argentine workshops. In the Spanish team he feels “very comfortable”, according to EFE, and in Madrid, far from Venezuela, he spent confinement in the State of Alarm with his girlfriend.

The Venezuelan international lives with his partner in an apartment in the town of Majadahonda, just 15 kilometers from Madrid and 20 from the Santo Domingo de Alcorcón stadium, where they train and play.

Since the Spanish League resumed in mid-June, Alcorcón has played four games. In the first two (Zaragoza and Sporting de Gijón) he was a substitute, but in the last two (Cádiz and Almería) he started.

Those last two games against the leader, Cádiz, and the third classified, Almería, both as visitors, Alcorcón added four points with Sosa as the leading actor.

The Venezuelan has been gaining gallons within the team, with which he has played 20 matches and 832 minutes of play, and in these last matches he has even thrown suitable fouls for his left-handed profile.

“The desire is many, we have the same enthusiasm and we work every day to achieve objectives,” said Sosa, a member of an Alcorcón who, in 18 games as a visitor, does not know defeat away from his stadium, being the only team of the 42 of Spanish professional football undefeated at home.

“This club has bet on me and has given me a great opportunity, for which I am very grateful to them. Alcorcón is a key player in my professional and personal career and I live this experience as something unique, that is why I want to make the most of the opportunity “he pointed out.

“I work every day with the maximum effort so that the coach can count on me. Fran Fernández is a very demanding coach but he always gives us all his support. In addition, Venezuelan and Spanish football are similar in terms of ball possession and that It helps me because it resembles my football, “he said.

Sosa, in his short professional career, already has a runner-up in the U-20 World Cup in South Korea in 2017, in which he scored two goals, and in the last South American of the same category played in Chile in 2019 he was chosen by the Conmebol in the ideal eleven.

The COVID-19 pandemic prevented Samu Sosa from attending the call of his selection for the official matches against Colombia and Paraguay, qualifiers for the next 2022 World Cup to be held in Qatar, and which were suspended due to coronavirus in the past month of March.

“The coach called me (José Peseiro), he asked me how I was, if I was doing things, how the family was and how I was in Alcorcón,” Sosa revealed.

The Alcorcón, with 48 points, caresses the permanence, which from the club stands at 50 points, and gets fully involved in the fight for the promotion positions, which now does not resign when seeing them closely. Ahead, seven games to get a dream.
