Captain and goal-scorer of River Plate, Fernando Cavenaghi announced just how important it was for his club to defeat Quilmes with a resounding 5-0 victory as the team of Ramon Diaz was playing for a chance to secure their 35th trophy in the clubs’ history and indeed it was successfully accomplished.
Even with their recent title win, River Plate still has a series of obstacles and matches left to be played as the team of Ramon Diaz has to face off against San Lorenzo on May 24 and a few days later against Boca.
Fernando Cavenaghi stated that he will play against San Lorenzo but the Argentinean attacker is not certain if he is going to be able to play in Mexico against Boca as he is still suffering from foot injuries.
‘’I am achieving a lifelong dream. I wanted to be a champion once more and I am extremely proud of all my teammates. It’s a huge feeling of accomplishment and joy and I share this with my family as well as the supporters of River Plate. Everyone in the team is responsible for everything we have and still are accomplishing. Cavenaghi stated.
Cavenaghi initiated his career by playing in the academy of River Plate where he made his debut for the team and was able of scoring 17 goals in 23 appearances until being offloaded to Spartak Moscow with a price tag of €6.5 million.
From there on out, the Argentinean striker went on making his way through a number of clubs including: Bordeaux, Villareal and Pachuca just to name a few but the only club where he managed on securing silverware and standout with important goals was with River Plate.
