A national title in the last ten years…That is little, extremely little, for a club with the history of Alajuelense Sports League.
That is the agony today of the red and black fansthe disconsolation with which he travels year after year in the national championship.
Every start of the tournament, the manudo fans find a light to feed their enthusiasm, some bombshell signing, a new coach, a good regular phase, but then the nightmare of the final phase arrives and the result is the same, The desired crown 31 does not arrive in its display cases.
So it all comes down to that tournament. Apertura that they won in 2020, the only great joy in the national competition in the last decade.
And that was almost without being able to celebrate, in that sad and complex time of the COVID-19 pandemic. The stands were empty.
“There is a big drought that the fans feel, that hurts us“said striker Joel Campbell after the elimination of the last championship.
The via crucis of the League can be analyzed in so many ways, that it can even be said that, in the last ten years, He has the same titles as Pérez Zeledón (Opening 2017), Saint Charles (Closing 2019) and Carthaginian (Closing 2022).
Meanwhile, now he sees how in the new final Herediano could reach them with 30 titles if he is national champion or Saprissa could escape until 39.
The agony today is greater than ever in Alajuelense.
