After a devastating start to the season with the Feyenoord, In which he even quickly positioned himself as one of the most lethal gunners in Europe, Santiago Gimenez currently has six games without a goal, which has brought him numerous criticisms; However, the Mexican player defended himself after winning the Dutch Cup with his team.

After the celebration in the streets of Rotterdam before nearly 35,000 fans after win the Dutch Cup“El Bebote” sent a message to his critics and detractors, remembering that this year he had a better performance than in his previous season.

This despite the fact that in 2024 his goal average dropped, since in the 18 games he has played this year he has only scored 3 goals, hence the criticism from the media and former playerss to “Chaquito”.

“It depends how you look at it.”. In the first season I had a more consistent performance, but this season I have more goals and assists than last season. This year it was difficult to reach a constant level. It was a season with ups and downs. This was mainly due to the second half of the season, but if you look at the numbers, my second season is better than the first,” he said in an interview for ESPN.

And the numbers prove him right, since last season he scored 23 goals and sent 3 assists in 45 games, while in the current season he has 24 goals and 7 assists in 40 games, with 4 more games to play in which he can improve his brand, something that Giménez is aware of.

“I try to believe in myself in every game and do what I always do. Also It is part of football and the life of a forward. That happens to all of us sometimes. You just have to keep working hard and always stay focused. I will continue to trust in God and the good times will return, when they have to return,” he concluded.

Feyenoord’s next match will be this Thursday against Go Ahead Eagles, then they will host Zwolle on May 5, then they will visit NEC, a team they defeated in the Dutch Cup final and, finally, they will close the season at home against Excelsior.

The four games that remain for Rotterdam correspond to the Eredivisie, a tournament in which they are as sub-leaders, 9 points below the leader, PSV with 12 points to play, so it seems difficult for them to be crowned in the league , since they would need to win all their games and wait for Eindhoven to lose three and draw one.
