Camilo Mayada is Penarol’s sixth reinforcement in the prelude to the Clausura Championship. The 32-year-old right-back midfielder returned to Uruguayan football after taking off from Danubio in 2014 (2009-2014) after being a protagonist in the 2013-2014 Uruguayan Championship. He made a qualitative leap in his career and won the Copa Libertadores twice in 2015 and 2018 with River Plate in Argentina. Later, he played in San Luis (Mexico, 2019-2021) and finally in Libertad in Paraguay, (from 2021) but did not continue this year.
“I came with the best expectations. I needed a new challenge. I have always known Uruguayan football. Penarol is at the top of the annual standings and has a very rich squad”, he said at Cala Scott Airport said. “When I came back from Mexico, something happened that didn’t happen to me. I had three covid-19s, and pneumonia, and it stopped me. I couldn’t connect. Physically and footballingly. I’m ready to play.”
Mayada stressed that Penarol President Ignacio Ruglio “is very important because we have very good communication. When I come back, my priority is the Danube. I communicated with Atul Ro del Campo (President of the Maronias club) had a conversation, he was a gentleman and I thank you for that. People talked about it, but some situations got out of touch with reality. I’m glad to have this opportunity”.
The winger midfielder was received by Pablo Bengoechea (sporting director) at the terminal and will undergo a medical. The contract is for two years. He travels to Asuncion in the next few hours before returning on Sunday to join Dario Rodriguez’s side. Penarol has the new charcoal burner Mayada.
