Ecuadorian striker Michael Arroyo who participated in the FIFA World Cup in Brazil has signed with Liga MX giant Club America confirmed the Ecuadorian Federation on Monday. Arroyo will join the team on Tuesday after traveling back to Mexico on Monday said the South American FA. 

"If you are signed by a big club you have to believe big things are to come"

"I'm very happy for my transfer to America." Said Michael Arroyo in an interview with the Ecuadorian Federation website. "Today (Monday) I travel to Mexico and tomorrow (Tuesday) I will join the 'profe' (Antonio Mohamed) and my teammates." 


"If you are signed by a big club you have to believe in big things are to come" said Arroyo. "I know that this is going to be a big challenge and and a lot will be asked of me. I arrive at a very popular club in Mexico with a demanding fan base. I'm going to work hard, and give it my all and I'm sure things will work out."   


Before the World Cup Arroyo was part of the Potros de Hierro del Atlante in the Liga MX, team the lost the relegation battle and got dropped to Mexico's Ascenso MX. Arroyo was by far their best player with 8 goals scored; he was their only hope of avoiding the relegation drop. 


Arroyo shined at Atlante with his remarkable free kicks from long distance which made several goalkeepers look foolish.
