His player Mars and with the… arrow it is now o Alvaro Zamora!
The “yellow and black” PAE announced on Friday afternoon (14/07) the acquisition of the 21-year-old Costa Rican midfielder, with the two sides agreeing a five-year contract until summer of 2028!
The announcement of PAE Aris in detail:
“PAE ARIS announces the acquisition of Alvaro Zamora for the next five years.
Alvaro Jose Zamora Mata was born in San Jose, Costa Rica on March 9, 2002 and started his football career at Orlando Academy.
At the development league level he played for Alajuelense, Herediano, CS Urugay and Deportivo Saprissa, all teams from his country.
His first appearances at men’s level were with Grecia and Perez Zeledon.
It was Deportivo Saprissa who gave him the big chance to star in the first division with Zamora “seizing” the opportunity and highlighting his talent.
In the 2022-23 season, the 21-year-old international midfielder made 42 appearances in Costa Rica’s first division (4 goals, 3 assists).
His excellent performances with Deportivo Saprissa also earned him a call-up to the representative group.
Alvaro Zamora has four caps with the Costa Rican Men’s national team and was part of the squad at the recent World Cup in Qatar.
It should be noted that before coming to Thessaloniki he received an important award as the best under-21 footballer in his country’s league (Apertura 2022). An example of an up-and-coming footballer with prospects for development.
Receiving the award, Alvaro Zamora said: “I am happy and honored for this first individual award in my career. I want to thank my teammates at Deportivo Saprissa, who helped me win this special first prize.”
Immediately after signing his contract, Alvaro Zamora stated on the team’s website: “My big dream came true. I am coming to Europe to play football and I am really very happy that I now belong to ARIS.
I will do anything to succeed and I am determined to work hard to succeed. It’s a big step in my career, but I feel comfortable and have a lot of confidence in myself. I am ready to live the experience and meet the demands of ARIS, which is a big club with fanatical fans.
I want the fans to like what they see from me and I won’t deny them. I like to assist and score. I know how to do this well, but football is a team sport and the team comes first. I will do whatever is needed and wherever the coach asks me.
It might be my first time away from home, but I won’t have a problem adjusting. I will find my compatriot Ronald Matarita, with whom we are teammates in the Costa Rican national team, at ARIS, and I know that there are also quite a few kids who speak Spanish, which will help me.
I want to have success with ARIS in Greece and in Europe and advance to the Conference League. It is very important to reach the groups and we have to do everything to achieve that.”
