Romell Quioto among a select group


Thanks to his two successes in CF Montreal's draw against Inter Miami CF on Saturday, Romell Quioto joined a select group in the history of the Montreal eleven. 

The Honduras native has scored 11 goals in 22 appearances this season. Only Marco Di Vaio, Didier Drogba and Ignacio Piatti had scored ten goals in a campaign with the Montreal organization in Major League Soccer. 

Even if head coach Wilfried Nancy allowed to send a small arrow at the place of his striker number 1, first recalling that he forgot to pass the ball at times, he did not hesitate to highlight his prowess.

< p> “He expresses himself and takes pleasure, he noted. I'm happy for him. He joins great people who have played at the club.”

Quioto said he was equally honored to inscribe his name in the legend of the formation of the Quebec metropolis.

“I am very happy and very proud, noted Quioto, through an interpreter. When I arrived here, I said out loud that I came to work and that I was not going to disappoint the club and the fans.”

“I am working very hard to continue doing what I I can do the best for the club.”

In 2022, even when he can't find the back of the net – something increasingly rare these days – Quioto leaves his mark on the pitch. In particular, he allows his teammates to stand out, according to Samuel Piette.

“Even if in a match he does not score or does not obtain [a decisive pass], he is someone who weighs very heavy on the opposing defense, noted the Quebecer. He is very strong, very tough, very strong. He is someone who attracts defenders to him. He can open up some spaces.”

A unique celebration

CF Montreal fans are now used to seeing Quioto cover his ears after putting on the needle as a celebration. For the former Houston Dynamo, it's simply a way of reminding people that sometimes it's important to isolate yourself from outside noise.

“For me, it's very important not to always listen to what others have to say about me […] to be able to get the best I can give,” he summarized.
