Peter Vermes lauds record signing Alan Pulido as complete striker

Sporting Kansas City have been on the search for a star striker since trading Dom Dwyer to Orlando City SC halfway through the 2017 season. While they found an effective “goals by committee” solution in 2018, the 2019 season was a regression on the goal scoring front.

Their answer was to smash a club-record transfer fee for the Liga MX golden boot winner, Alan Pulido. As Pulido was introduced to the local media on Tuesday morning, he acknowledged the level of expectations that comes with that fee.

“I’m happy because this shows the club’s trust in my abilities and the qualities that I’ve shown,” Pulido said.
