The Paraguayan Adrián Fernández joined the ranks of Alianza Atlético at the beginning of this 2022 and quickly showed his qualities as a scorer. Due to his good campaign, the Paraguayan striker aroused the interest of Sporting Cristal in the middle of the year; and, in the last weeks, from University, but finally he will stay in Sullana.
Through its social networks, the Piura club announced that the 30-year-old footballer agreed to extend their relationship throughout 2023. The ‘Vendaval’ released the news with a video of some of the goals scored by the experienced attacker throughout the season.
Let’s remember that Adrián Fernández recorded nine goals and two assists in the 26 games he played in League 1. The striker’s contribution was key for Alianza Atlético to stay at the top of the table, although the outcome was not as expected: the team failed to qualify for the Copa Sudamericana due to worse goal difference.
It is worth mentioning that the ‘Churres’ have been making several changes to their squad with a view to next season. One of the most outstanding novelties is the arrival of coach Carlos Desio, who was previously in charge of Deportivo Binacional and Sport Huancayo.
Precisely, the arrival of the strategist was also key to determining the renewal of Róger Torres and Jeremy Canela. On the other hand, it was confirmed that the following players will not continue in Alianza Atlético: Diego Penny, Marcio Valverde, Kleiber Palomino, Mauricio Montes, Franco Zanelatto, Joyce Conde, Juan Diego Lojas, Rafael Guarderas, Kevin Ruiz, Jesús Arismendi, Willy Pretel, Ignacio Araujo, Jonathan Bilbao and Maxi Amondarain.
