Pumas: Sebastián Saucedo aspires to play Pre-Olympic with the United States

Waiting to be considered for the Concacaf Pre-Olympic, Sebastian Saucedo felt that his arrival at Cougars has opened the doors of the Selection of U.S, because the coaches of the senior team, Gregg Berhalter, and of the Olympic, Jason Kreis, have followed the steps.

The first time I arrived (in Pumas) I was called to the National Team to face Costa Rica, but for game issues here we traveled to Torreón they didn’t let me go, but for Pre-Olympic there is FIFA Date, I already imagine that that will be handled by the club whether or not it leaves us, it would obviously be a dream to qualify the Olympians, “the midfielder told a news conference.

“As I said, when I was in Real salt lake I didn’t have the advantage of saying that they were going to call me to the National Team but when I arrived in Pumas and in the first games I did very well, the senior team teacher called me, the Olympic teacher is always talking about how I am, so it’s something different and something important. ”

In just four league games, Saucedo already has a goal and is a holder at the University Club.

On the way in which the Tri and the Selection of the bars and stars are prepared, the offensive flyer applauded the initiative of the Mexican Soccer Federation to concentrate players for periods of three days for a few weeks prior to Guadalajara Pre-Olympic.

“It’s okay to give them three days to concentrate and join the group, it’s spectacular, but it’s a bit complicated with the United States with so many players from Europe and with many players that are standing in the MLS, that the players let them go Europe is complicated, “he said.


On the large number of players who go from the MX League to the MLS, Saucedo said it could be due to the large amount of free time they have after training.

As a Mexican in MLS I felt very comfortable in the aspect that I could be with my family longer, I enter here at eight in the morning and leave at two. There in the United States you do your job and you have free all day and I believe that many players leave for that and try a new league, but to be with their family, “he said.
