When Luis Urrutti marked the 3-1 of University of Sports about ADT, Jorge Fossati’s celebration perfectly described the feeling of the ‘cream’ fans: a total relief. And it is that, even though in the end they did not put up any resistance, the people from Tarma arrived at the Monumental stadium to generate many problems, especially in the first half. ‘Tito’, as has become a custom since the season began, raised his hand –twice, with a double in his pocket– to get them out of their anxiety and set up the party in Ate.
The 30-year-old striker did not start the Apertura Tournament as a starter –according to Carlos Compagnucci, due to physical problems–, but that was never an impediment for him, at the point of work, to continue showing that he should be a starter in the ‘U’. He has that precious asset that every attacker needs and in the student team they are taking advantage of it: the goal.
“Happy, what better to ask life than a triumph. A round night and more when the family is in the stands. With all these beautiful people, who fill the stadium in every game. We have not won, winning mentality, and now we have another final on Friday against Cienciano”, said the Uruguayan nationalized Peruvian in dialogue with GOLPERU.
When he was asked about his substitution at the beginning of the year, Urruti was clear in stating that he was always there to play a full game, hinting that his place on the bench had more to do with a decision by the past technical command, than with his recruitment process. recovery to be 100%. Now with Fossati as coach, he has found that support that he always needed to shine on the pitch.
“I was there for ninety minutes. Afterwards it is a matter of the technicians if they want to put you sixty, seventy and eighty. I am physically fine, I want to thank the ‘teacher’ who knows me and is doing well to avoid injuries”, said the soccer player born in Conchillas, Uruguay.
Finally, now that Universitario has scored 12 points in the standings and is in second place –only behind Deportivo Garcilaso, with 13–, the striker was cautious despite the good moment they are experiencing. He prefers to think step by step and go game by game, with humility.”The ‘U’ has to be there, it is their duty, to fight for the title every year. It makes me happy to be up there, we haven’t won anything, we have to go game by game because it’s all a final”, he pointed out.
What’s next for Universitario in Liga 1?
After this victory over ADT for date 9 of the Opening Tournament, University of Sports will be active again next week when they visit the Inca Garcilaso de la Vega stadium, located in the city of Cusco, to face Deportivo Garcilaso. The match is scheduled for Friday, March 31 from 6:00 p.m. and will be broadcast on the exclusive Liga 1 MAX signal.
The last memory of the ‘U’ stepping on that venue in Cusco is positive, since they beat Deportivo Binacional a week ago with goals from Alex Valera and Emanuel Herrera. Because the former Al Fateh striker will be in Europe with the Peruvian National Team, the ‘Maquinaria’ will be the main goal card for the ‘creams’.
